Customer Comments

  • According to the Datasheet, time to first lock is 38 seconds from cold start, or 3 seconds hot-start. The figure quoted on this page (3 seconds from cold) is currently impossible, with the required data only being sent from the GPS satellites once every 30 seconds or so.
    Also, to save you time, this is a 1Hz unit.

  • Do you have some breakout/shield compatible with this module? I already have this receiver and looking for a way how to easily connect it to the arduino pro.

  • When can I expect a DIP module like the old Copernicus?

This module works well. The documentation is good, the reference design works well and it is easy to talk to. I have used this module in 2 different designs and it is an easy way to add GPS to a project. If you use a standby battery, use the biggest one you can. Initially, I used some 30MAH coin cells and the battery only lasted a month or two. The 230MAH batteries that I replaced it with are doing fine a year later.
