Chapter 13. Using GPS with Your Arduino

In this chapter, you will

  • Learn how to connect a GPS shield

  • Create a simple GPS coordinates display

  • Show the actual position of GPS coordinates on a map

  • Build an accurate clock

  • Record the position of a moving object over time

You’ll learn how to use an inexpensive GPS shield to determine location, create an accurate clock, and also make a logging device that records the position over time onto a microSD card, which can then be plotted over a map to display the movement history.

What Is GPS?

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based navigation system that sends data from satellites orbiting Earth to GPS receivers on the ground that can use that data to determine position and the current time anywhere ...
