Assembling a GPS module
In this recipe, we are going to learn how to completely assemble a GPS module with Arduino, and make sure that it is working. The goal is to build a GPS tracking module with Arduino, which is what we will see in the next recipe.
For this project, we will have to use an Arduino Uno board, instead of the usual MKR1000 board, as at the time of writing, the GPS/GSM module I used was not compatible with the MKR1000 board. This is the list of all the components that you will need for this recipe:
- Arduino Uno (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11021)
- Adafruit Fona 808 breakout (http://www.adafruit.com/product/2542)
- GSM uFL antenna (http://www.adafruit.com/products/1991)
- GSM SIM card with GPRS data available
- 3.7V LiPo
