    Hi,
    I’m just a newbie here, please excuse me if my questions are beyond dumb.
    I want to use a sensor on a very light mobile robot (low payload capacity) so in terms of weight this seems to be a good fit.
    I am confused about the following:
    1) The description says “This module is pin to pin compatible to LOCOSYS LS200x6 series GPS module”……so is this module ready to use? or does one need to have another GPS receiver sensor to get this to work.
    2) With a normal GPS, when you are stationary, you cannot get the heading or even at startup, the GPS cannot tell which direction the robot is pointing. I assume the magnetometer in the sensor will take care of this by giving heading output? (the specs seem to suggest that but I just wanted to be sure I have understood it right)
    Thanks in advance.

No public wish lists :(
