  • What has changed with this from the older version? https://www.sparkfun.com/products/retired/13328

  • Can I use the EM506 GPS module with this shield? I have the shield already, bought it a long time ago -but the EM406 seems to no longer be available.

  • If these sell out quickly, I'm sorry to have to tell you Sparkfun, but I'm going to whip up a batch of 50 myself and sell them for about $60 cheaper and still make a huge profit, -and still probably won't be a blip on your radar (so don't squash me!). This is an insanely high profit margin (that I believe you have every right to set) and I'm now thinking I got into the wrong career field -M.D. (just kidding on the M.D. part, I'm just a computer science student). In fact, this reminds me of the open-hardware cooperative some colleagues of mine are in the planning stages of creating. With our connected world, iPhones, Android and laptops connected throughout the world, co-ops don't have to remain local. Buy in bulk together, to get the better prices (I have pictures in my head of the NYC commodity exchange floor with a bunch of colored shirts running around with tickets to buy or sell -looking like a mad-house, though that's just my over-imaginative mind), With enough people, this approach could work. These boards would then cost in the under $70 dollar range, less than half the price and better yet, any profit goes back into the coop for the next batch of parts/boards. Until a dream like that is set up though, I may have to stick to the Jungle store if these sell out fast enough. You can think of the co-op, as an open-source community model...

  • Yes, you're probably not choosing the right board under the tools option in the Arduino IDE. Should be an extremely simple fix!

  • The free-shipping to the east coast through UPS (the absolute worst courier in the world, btw) takes well over a week and a half -and that's when they don't screw anything up. I get packages from Hong Kong in less time than that. However, by using the United States Postal Service (USPS) priority mail (which seems to be cheaper for whomever is paying for it), only takes two days to arrive. Most of my orders average $12 through UPS if I have to pay for shipping, while the average for USPS is around $7. So, due to the extremely long shipping time and my absolute hatred of UPS, I'm more inclined to just pay the $7 for USPS priority mail, regardless of any free shipping perk, -unless of course I'm watching my pennies extremely closely. The added benefits are two fold; First I don't have to deal with UPS and second, I get my order in two days, rather than two weeks... I wish Sparkfun's free shipping included USPS, as I'd be more inclined to purchase from Sparkfun rather than Adafruit...

  • Is that a 0-ohm resistor and does anyone know what size coin-cell battery holder and the crystal? Any help would be much appreciated!

  • I see that the schematic is for v1.3 and I was wondering if its the same for v1.4? Also, is that a 0 ohm resistor? One last question, what size coin-cell battery holder is that? BOM? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • Can I charge this Li-ion battery with the Lipo Charger/Booster (PRT-11231)? The battery that I received is different from the one shown in the picture and is labeled 'Li-ion' - GSP 585460. I thought that I wasn't supposed to charge Li-ion batteries with Li-Po chargers?
