A little while ago I showed you how to start a script on your Raspberry Pi from boot and then use a button to execute a command in the terminal. One of the cool applications of being able to do this is that now you just have to turn on your Raspberry Pi for something to happen – no keyboard, mouse, ssh-ing or monitor required!
I decided to apply this awesomeness to Adafruit’s Ultimate GPS Breakout Board so that I could take the GPS and the Pi anywhere I wanted.
