From the Forums: Interactive Solar GPS Logger w/ LCD #arduino

Work-in-progress Interactive Solar GPS Logger w/ LCD shared in the Adafruit Forums by ChicagoDave:

Still very much a work in progress, but finally got to a presentable point in the process!

Using Arduino UNO, Ultimate GPS Logger Shield, an LCD from (another company….for now), a few buttons, and a “Skeleton Case”….
this was created –

I’m waiting on a different/better enclosure and screen from Adafruit right now. Then I can button things up a bit nicer, get the screen out of the way of the GPS antenna, and make it a bit more durable. It’s not entirely solar powered. More “solar-assisted” as the USB battery uses solar panel to help keep the battery charged. But, I know I’m using more mA’s than the sun is putting back into my source!

I plan on using it to help me with my final project for my GIS class (Geographic Information Systems) to help me collect & track location-based data. So, I’m sure I’ll be adding a few other sensors & features to it soon!

If anyone has any questions…or better yet, advice/suggestions….post away!

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. (read more)
