NEW PRODUCT – Adafruit Ultimate GPS Logger Shield – Includes GPS Module
NEW PRODUCT – Adafruit Ultimate GPS Logger Shield – Includes GPS Module. Brand new and better than ever, we’ve replaced our Adafruit GPS shield kit with this assembled shield that comes with an Ultimate GPS module. This GPS shield works great with either UNO or Leonardo Arduinos and is designed to log data to an SD card. Or you can leave the SD card out and use the GPS for a geocaching project, or maybe a music player that changes tunes depending on where you are in the city.
-165 dBm sensitivity, 10 Hz updates, 66 channels
Low power module – only 20mA current draw, half of most GPS’s
Assembled & tested shield for Arduino Uno/Duemilanove/Diecimila/Leonardo (not for use with Mega/ADK/Due)
MicroSD card slot for datalogging onto a removable card
RTC battery included, for up to 7 years backup
Built-in datalogging to flash
PPS output on fix
Internal patch antenna + u.FL connector for external active antenna
If your project is going to be inside an enclosure, you’ll love this shield as it has external antenna support. Simply connect an external active GPS antenna via a uFL/SMA cable to the shield and the module will automatically switch over to use the antenna. You can then place the antenna wherever you wish.
