Sailing Pi: GPS Tracking in Your Boat @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi

via The MagPi

My weekly sailing crew asked for a way to visualise where we had been, and for a live display of the true speed over ground to see whether we were fighting tides. This project delivers both, without relying on internet connections or cell phone data. Add a battery and it would also be useful for car rallies or cyclists. All you need is a Raspberry Pi Zero W with some additional hardware, Python, and Mathematica!

You’ll need

Raspberry Pi Zero W with case and GPIO header

Ultimate GPS breakout

Pimoroni Scroll pHAT

40-pin stacking header for the Scroll pHAT

USB to micro USB cable for power

12 V USB power adapter suitable for a car

You’ll also probably need a boat.
