This is a retired product, but fear not as there is a newer, better version available: GPS-11058

Replacement: GPS-10921. The new version of this board is built with the Venus638FLPx-L, a more robust drop-in replacement for the Venus634LPx. This page is for reference only.
Description: This is a development board that uses the smallest, most powerful, and most versatile GPS receiver we carry, the Venus. The module can be configured to an amazingly powerful 10Hz update rate, with 14 channel tracking! With two serial ports, UART and SPI interfaces (please see the datasheets on how to implement the SPI interface), 28mA operating current, and high sensitivity, this receiver seriously opens new doors for tracking. Module outputs the standard NMEA-0183 or SkyTraq Binary sentences at a default rate of 9600bps (adjustable to 115200bps).
The Venus634LPx has improved sensitivity, an integrated LNA (with multipath detection and suppression), built-in RTC, and integrated single power supply making it very simple to use. In addition, the module supports data logging with an external SPI Flash!
You can easily connect to the UART using our USB to Serial FT232 Breakout Board.

Note: The GPIO pins do not serve any functions and can be left floating and ignored.
