Description: The GP-735 is a slim, ultra-high performance, easy to use GPS smart antenna receiver. With -162dBm tracking sensitivity and only 29 second cold start time, the GP735 is a tiny, yet powerful, piece of tech. The slim design makes it ideal for applications where you don’t have a lot of space to work in. Really it’s quite small.
This 56-channel GPS module, based on the uBlox 7th generation chipset, has an operating voltage of 3.3~5.5V, an antenna on board, and connects to your system via TTL serial. The 1Hz update rate is fast enough for the majority of applications (and can be increased to 10Hz if you need) so whether you’re tracking a pet or building an autonomous car, the GP-735 has you covered!
Note: We are carrying the “T” option of this module which is TTL-UART and not USB.
Note: This receiver works with 6-pin 1mm pitch JST type cables and connectors which you can find in the Recommended Products section below!
Dimensions: 35 x 8 x 6.5 mm

Yet to test its functionality but I realized this does NOT come with the JST SH Jumper 6 Wire - 1.75" cable which retail for another $2.95. I did not read carefully and simply expected a $40 dollar GPS module would come with the GPS or the weather shield. I can’t ask for free cables but why not just put it in the package and adjust the price accordingly?
Using it with an Arduino Uno R3, and NeoGPS, so I can parse out both GPS and Glonass satellites. System works very well.
Works perfectly fine with an unlicensed ISM tracker. Ditched the onboard GPS and added this unit to it by soldering the signal cable to the board and used the 3.3V power output on an earlier version of the device http://www.eggtimerrocketry.com/page45.php
But has a couple of imitations the larger ones don’t have. It takes about 30 seconds for the lock to occur after power up. Once locked, the module can be put into power-down mode and come back up very quickly. Maybe it remembers its previous position and can re-lock quicker? I could not write to the module at all. I don’t think that feature is supported. I used it as a real time clock with a PIC micro to control my landscape lighting and it worked well in that application compensating for DST, etc.
