GPS Module for Arduino, Raspberry Pi and Intel Galileo


Availability:In stock


NOTE: This product is compatible with Arduino, Raspberry Pi and Intel Galileo boards. See below the links to each of the tutorials.

GPS Module for Arduino is a small electronic circuit that allows to connect to your Arduino board to get position and altitude, as well as speed, date and time on UTC (Universal Time Coordinated). Internal GPS antenna is not included. It is sold as an optional and it is required to use the module.

The assembled module is Vincotech A1080-B that uses the standard NMEA and SIRF III protocols ( to transmit the position data via serial port.

GPS module for Arduino is a perfect complement for developing geolocalization applications.

It can be used with many navigation NMEA compatible software

IMPORTANT! Handle with care the internal antenna. It's fragile. To get a correct fixation with the satellites, please cover the module with a plastic box
