Location, location, location… What could be more important? And now your Raspberry Pi can help keep you centered with the Adafruit Ultimate GPS Hat and Windows IoT Core!
In this guide, we’ll take you through setting up and running our GPS Demo IoT application.
Works on Pi Model A+ or B+, Pi 2, and Pi 3.

The Adafruit Class Library is a special library package containing Windows IoT Core driver software for a variety of Adafruit products. To use the library, you must add a reference to it in your project.
To add the reference to the Adafruit Class Library, you’ll need to use the NuGet Package Manager, which is a standard part of Visual Studio.
To get to the Package Manager, open the Project Menu and select “Manage NuGet Packages…”
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
