What is the best chip antenna for your GNSS project? There are tons to choose from, but finding the right one might be tricky so here's a board that helps make deciding easier. The SparkFun GNSS Chip Antenna Evaluation Board makes it easy to test out various sized GPS antennas and geometries. Six different chip antennas have been populated on this board, each with a U.FL connector to attach your chip to the antenna! We've even v-scored the board so you can snap the six antenna's apart and just have the one you need.
If you aren't picky about your antenna and/or each of the antennas work well for your applications, you will get six antennas to use in various project. Since these are GNSS antennas, they will work with GPS as well as GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, and other worldwide systems.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.

I didn't want to hunt around for a smt antenna replacement for the particle electron asset tracker. Then this came out and I ordered it immediately. The scores make it easy to break apart. It was surprising to see the best performance from the W3011 but hey i'll take it.
