Easily add navigation to your Arduino projects with Dexter Industries GPS Shield.
The GPS Shield is built upon the SUP500F Receiver from Skytraq. The receiver is a 65 channel, 10 Hz Receiver with a smart antenna built in. This all-in-one GPS receiver does not require any antenna. Serial interface is via 3V LVTTL.
The shield comes fully assembled and does not require any assembly. Slide it on and go!

The Raspberry Pi B+ is a tiny, yet powerful single board computer that can be used in robotics, science experiments, electronic projects, games, and much more! Many of our Dexter Industries robot kits are designed to use the Raspberry Pi, including the GoPiGo, BrickPi, GrovePi, and Arduberry. The Raspberry Pi was developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation in the UK.
A Playstation DualShock controller interface for the Arduino. Slide this shield over your Arduino, plug in your controller, and you’ve got the awesome combination of a form-fitting controller and an open-source micro-controller.
The Arduberry connects to the Raspberry Pi (all versions) and allows you to use the hundreds of shields and sensors already available for the Arduino with the ease of writing programs for the Raspberry Pi — in Python, Scratch and other higher level languages.
