    That Design Guidelines document was a scary read. Looked like I needed to do a lot of work just to get this thing up and running.
    Not so.
    Plugged it into my 3.3VDC USB FTDI board and I had NMEA coming in the serial port. It’s been working fine all day.
    If Sparkfun does another board like this, they should consider laying it out so that it is pin compatible with the Arduino Pro Mini. Can you say, Mini-Shield?
    Or at least make it pin compatible with the USB FTDI board.
    Then I could heat-shrink the whole thing inline with the cable.

    It’s nice to have somewhere to refer people when they want to learn how to solder!
    Excellent tutorials!
