Description: The smallest, most powerful, and most versatile GPS receiver we carry just got more powerful. The Venus638FLPx is the successor to the Venus634LPx and has improved sensitivity and a faster update rate. The new module can be configured to an amazingly powerful 20Hz update rate. With 29mA operating current and high sensitivity, this receiver seriously opens new doors for tracking. Module outputs the standard NMEA-0183 or SkyTraq Binary sentences at a default rate of 9600bps (adjustable to 115200bps).
The Venus638FLPx has improved sensitivity, an integrated LNA (with multipath detection and suppression), built-in RTC, and integrated single power supply making it very simple to use.

I bought this to connect with my weather station shield. I had to figure out which wires from the jumper would be 3.3V, TX,RX,GND. Not that hard, I just wish I had more info readily available. There is little info on the board pins labeled 1, 2, 24. I found it in the comments from the previous version of the board.
I want to be able to put the chip into low power mode once a I get the date and time. I bought it for time sync and works well for that purpose.
