Working with a GPS module for navigation

GPS is module that receives a certain location from a satellite. GPS is a good method for finding a location when outdoors. Several GPS satellites can be used in the GPS module.

In this section, we will try to access a location from a GPS module. Location information obtained from the satellite will be sent to a computer through Bluetooth.
