Really Small(s) GPS

Gps

Really Small(s) GPS @ The Custom Geek. Jeremy writes –

Hi Adateam! Here is a post on the small GPS receiver and OLED display I had on show and tell. There is also a Flickr set here. Code is on Github, and links to it are on the post. 🙂


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

  1. The GPS doesn’t work with the lid on does it?

  2. I love this! Thank you for showing it. My truck does not have a compass like my old one, and I have been toying with the idea of making my own rather than buying one. I like the idea of using the GPS to be able to collect more data than just heading. I will be looking into this build with great interest because of the small size and the low power consumption.

  3. @ Jose – It actually does! I have not tested it for long periods of time, but have had it on with the lid closed, then opened after a few minutes (long enough to lose a signal) and it still has a signal! I think it’s due to Limor being picky about what Adafruit sells, and not selling anything short of the best stuff. Antenna is -165dBm tracking!! It really is a great little receiver.

    @MooreOrLess – Your welcome, glad to share this.

  4. You need Acrylic mintyboxes. Or polycarbonate, preferably with a waterproof option but where I can connect something securely through it.

    Something that lets through neither RF nor light isn’t useful.

    We need Faraday uncaged!

    I’ve been scrambling for my similar project for my motorcycle – it has GPS and a few status LEDs.
