Getting started with the Arduino GPS shield

Arduino GPS shield lets your Arduino board receive information from the GPS (Global Positioning System). The GPS is a satellite-based navigation system made up of a network of 24 satellites.

Arduino GPS shield consists of a GPS receiver that can be used to receive accurate time signals from the GPS satellite network and calculate its own position.

Arduino GPS Shield is currently manufactured by various electronics kit suppliers. The most popular manufacturers are SparkFun Electronics and Adafruit. Throughout this project, we will use the SparkFun GPS Shield kit (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13199).

The kit comes with an EM-506 GPS module and the Arduino stackable header kit. Click on Assembly Guide ...
