I purchased many of these components induividually, and i have been running into a problem. The GPS i bought is an EM406, and appears to be the same one as the one included in this kit. However, I have been told elsewhere i have to make sure my GPS isnt outputting in RS 232 format instead of serial. I dont exactly know what this means, i know there is a RS232 to Serial shifter, but im confused. Anyone have any suggestions? I am using an arduino UNO (or Yun I have both), the GPS shield shown here, and this (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/465) GPS. I dont know why i am having such huge issues.
I purchased this GPS, an arduino YUN, and the GPS shield from this cite. To my understanding it is the same as the GPS Retail Kit sold here too. However, when i go to run any code to test the GPS i have NO CONNECTION. Another user said i needed to convert from RS232 to Serial, but i havnt found anything about that in any online guides. Is it possible i have a bad RX-TX connection? how can i test to see what is and isnt working?
I need some assistance, I purchased one of this shields for my arduino yun. The GPS i bought outputs in RS232. Does that mean that i would need to attach another board to convert the signal?
No public wish lists :(
