  • About GPS, the GPS unit is the receiver, and satellites are the transmitter. GPS unit only receives the signal from satellites (and does no transmitting at all) and calculates current position from them.

    If you need to access the location of your GPS unit from distance, you need some kind of communication. It can be done using two XBee units, one of them receives location information from connected GPS unit, and sends it to another XBee unit over the air.

No public wish lists :(
