NEW GUIDE: Adafruit Mini GPS PA1010D Module #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit @adafruit
Need an I2C GPS that doesn’t require soldering? STEMMA to the rescue!
The Adafruit PA10101D Mini GPS breakout is only 1″ x 1″ (~ 25mm x 25mm) but houses a complete GPS/GNSS solution with both I2C and UART interfaces. There’s even an antenna on top so it’s plug and play! The breakout is built around the MTK3333 chipset, a reliable, high-quality GPS module that can handle up to 33 simultaneous tracking channels, has an excellent high-sensitivity receiver (-165 dBm tracking!), and a built in antenna. It can do up to 10 location updates a second for high speed, high sensitivity logging or tracking.
This new guide provides all the details of the Adafruit PA1010D Mini GPS module. It includes wiring diagrams for all the possible ways to connect this little board to your project, and includes example code to verify everything is working properly.

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.
