  • For those outside of USA the torque is about 50 N*cm.

  • Can the cover protect the switch in the ON position or does closing the cover automatically switch it to OFF? I realize you could wire it the other way, but then would the cover need to be slightly raised to leave it in the OFF position? Thanks!

  • I was thinking the same thing. I mean the tutorial is nice but the ready to boot image would be nicer.

  • Its been asked several times before, noone commented yet. Can I combine 10401 (LiPo Charger Basic) and 10255 (LiPower - Boost Converter) directly? Like one box with two USB connectors and a Lipo inside, where I can connect either a computer to charge the Lipo, or a mobile to charge this. Or even connect the box to an unreliable 5v source (bicycle generator comes to mind) and have the Lipo as kind of a USV?

    I basically would connect the Lipo to both the charger and the step-up-converter, all three of them in parallel.

    Any thoughts greatly welcome!

  • I would like to purchase this module and connect my own GPS antenna and Low Noise Amplifier to the receiver.

    Are there any schematics available so that I can bypass the built-in antenna and LNA?

    Why doesn't Sparkfun have a SiRF IV receiver without the built-in antenna?
