Easily add navigation to your Arduino projects with Dexter Industries GPS Shield.
Dexter Industries GPS Shield for Arduino slides over the Arduino UNO, Leonardo, and Mega. The shield provides serial data to the Arduino (This design is currently not compatible with the Leonardo or Mega, but will be shortly). Slide on and go outside!
The GPS Shield is drive by 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 antennae. Serial interface is via 3V LVTTL.
The shield comes fully assembled and does not require any assembly. Slide it on and go!
