SparkFun GPS Breakout

This is a more universal GPS breakout board that uses a vertical SMD connector which is perfect for the GP-735T GPS receiver that we sell. It features 2 mounting holes and through-hole connections for wires or headers. This is a lower profile breakout and should prove much easier to use while saving space in any project you need it for!

Customer Comments

  • Does anyone know if this breakout board will work with the EM-506 GPS receiver or is it only compatible with the GP-635T GPS receiver?

    • They are compatible. They use the same cable connection. You should verify the pin out of the EM-506 before hooking up power however.

  • This looks like a DF-13 connector, but I assume from the other comments that it is not. As previously stated, it would be great if someone would make a DF-13 breakout board. Now that APM has been ported to linux, building a raspberry pi, odroid c1, or edison based drone would be alot simpler if such a board existed because then you could use standard pixhawk accessories easily - GPS/compass units use DF-13, power module uses it, etc.

  • Can you build one of these with a Hirose DF-13 5 pin connector? Or maybe even a Hirose DF-13 6 pin connector?

    • I also need this with an DF13 6-pin connector. This way the Pixhawk Flight Controller users can easely check GPS settings and change settings when needed.

  • Is this the same connector used on the EM 406A module?

  • What are the two pads on opposing corners of the PCB for?
