New Kit! GPS Logging shield for Arduino

[flickr 2616756753 ]

I’m so very sleepy today but I should post about this before a nap…After many many many revisons, my GPS data-logging shield is done! Ive spent the last few weeks taking lots of data, so I think its pretty solid. The design supports 4 different (popular) modules, and writes data to an SD card as a plain text file. For geo-sensor tracking, I wrote a sketch that will log 3 analog sensor values along with the location, date and time. Many people have asked me over the years about DIY GPS loggers so hopefully they will be happy now. 🙂

There’s even some ideas for power management, and waterproof enclosures

You can pick one up at the Adafruit webshop right now, along with a rather nice GPS receiver module.

Phew…I think I’m going to take a break from designing new Arduino shields for a bit: I’m pretty happy with the 5 I’ve got and there are many other neat projects clamoring for attention.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
