HAM-gadget (3) – connected the GPS

Finally got it to work

After much fiddling and trying out different libraries I finally had a bright moment and reverted back to the library that has been specifically made for this GPS module by Velleman… Duh…

prototype, software version 0.5

That worked, also after some tweaking of the wires for the software serial connection between the Arduino and the GPS module.

To the right you can see the prototype on the bench.

Wanna build it too?

As usual, the Arduino source is available at my Github page.

The result on the screens

And below, there’s a picture of the screens. The location on the top screen is from the satallite, as are the date and (UTC) time on the bottom screen. So far, I’m happy with this.
