Retired RETIRED

This product has been retired from our catalog and is no longer for sale.

This page is made available for those looking for datasheets and the simply curious. Please refer to the description to see if a replacement part is available.

Replacement: None. There is no direct replacement for this item. This page is for reference only.

Description: When a postage stamp is just too big, take a look at the MN5010HS. At 10x10mm in size, this is the smallest receiver we've ever sneezed and lost. With two serial ports, 36mA operating current, and high sensitivity, this miniscule receiver opens new doors for tracking. Module outputs the standard NMEA sentences at 4800bps. Please note this unit requires an antenna (which will be many times the size of the receiver itself) and has a tight 1.0mm pitch footprint. Checkout the size comparison between the EM-406A, Lassen iQ, Copernicus, and GR-10 (also 10x10mm)!

The MN5010HS has the same size and similar footprint to the MN1010. The MN5010HS has improved sensitivity, an integrated LNA, built-in RTC, and integrated single power supply making it very simple to use.

Note: To send a NMEA command to the module, you need to send a /r/n or hit Ctrl-Enter to send the command from a terminal program.

  • Any idea when these will be back in stock?

  • Can the 10mm square antenna from the Locosys module be used with this receiver? Is that antenna available separately?

  • how would i program it?

  • So if I some how stuck this to my ipod, i could track my ipod if it was stolen?

    • It wouldn’t work quite like that, this is only a receiver, you’d need a transmitter to send the GPS signal this receives to you.

  • Your specs for the part say 3.3-5.5V supply, but current consumed is 36mA @ 1.8V, which is outside the operational range.
    The datasheet lists 3.25 - 5.5V supply and current consumption at 26mA.

  • What antenna should i use?

  • how many Hz is the update?

  • Nate: Yea - we knew this would be an issue. And the comparable eval kit from Micro Module is over $500! That’s what we like to see. We’ll try to get a breakout/eval posted in the next few months.
    I really need one of these now. Months? It’s been a couple now… is it almost ready?

  • A couple days ago the link to the datasheet about was dead. Now the link to the homepage is dead as well.

  • Take a look at the new Venus 634LP from Skytraq. Similar size, power consumption and features + 7-day ephemeris AGPS support, direct connection to a SPI Flash for logging supported by extended command set. I have one these: Very fast TTFF, excellent sensitivity,accuracy and stability [low wander], NO SBAS at this time but is planned. Nice part.

  • :o please tell me there’s a soldered-to-a-breakout-board version of this. it looks awesome!
