Introduction

It is based on the NEO - 6 u blox 6 GPS module, and its pins are compatible with Arduino/MEGA board. Regular GPS pins (RX, TX) can be connected to Arduino D0-D7. Several GPS receivers are easily installed on the expansion board and you can find your exact position within a few meters. At the same time, GPS also provides a very accurate time for you! It is applied to automobile navigation, personal positioning, team management, navigation and so on.

Performance Parameters

  • Compatible with main controller on the market,such as UNO R3 and MEGA2560
  • Using 6-channel LED indicator to show the working condition of program for modulating program conveniently
  • Switching functions with 3-channel keyswitch
  • One reset button
  • Using revolving potentiometer to do analog input
  • Alarming and making sound by passive buzzer module
  • Using 4 bit LED Segment Displays to display data

Sample Code

/*
  Demo code for GPS Shield
  It records the GPS information onto the TF card, 
  and display on serial monitor as well.
*/
#include <SD.h>
#include <SPI.h>
#include <SoftwareSerial.h>

const int chipSelect = 10;

SoftwareSerial mySerial(6,7);//(RX,TX), (7->GPS_TX,6->GPS_RX)

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  mySerial.begin(9600);
  
  pinMode(10, OUTPUT);
  if (!SD.begin(chipSelect)) {
   
    return;
  }
 
}

void loop()
{
  // make a string for assembling the data to log:
  char index = 0;
  char temp = 0;
  String dataString = "";
  
  // open the file. note that only one file can be open at a time,
  // so you have to close this one before opening another.
  File dataFile = SD.open("datalog.txt", FILE_WRITE);
  if(dataFile)
  {
	while(mySerial.available())
	{
		temp = mySerial.read();
		Serial.print(temp);
		dataString += String(temp);
		index++;
		if(index>200)
			break;
	}
	dataFile.print(dataString);
	
	dataFile.close();
  }else
  {
	Serial.println("Open file failed");
  }
}
