    Regarding the FTDI cable to configure this module, do i need to get a 3.3v cable? As far as i could tell from the ardupilot config guide Vcc of the cable is ignored in replace of an external 3.3v source suggesting a 5v cable would work. Does mean the tx signal from a 5v cable is 3.3v or can the GPS module accept a 5v signal on the rx pin without damage?
    Also just to confirm, the FTDI cable and rx pin of the module is only used to configure it. During operation I just connect the tx pin to the rx pin of an arduino directly? Finally, will the 3.3v supply from an arduino provide enough current to power this during peak load?

No public wish lists :(
