Description: This is a tiny GPS module that uses the MN5010HS module in conjunction with a GPS chip antenna. Built in LNA makes for reliable locks from satellites. Selectable baud rate and NMEA and SiRF outputs from a jumper on the back of the board. Comes with all relavent pins broken out, including a VCC, RX, TX, and GND header for an easy plug in connection to our FTDI USB to Serial board.
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.
