GPS Shield with SD Slot for Arduino V3

Recommended Posts

do you know why do I have an error in the data I receive with this shield? I am using XCTU to see the Latitude and Longitude. The data is like 20-30 miles away from where the device is. I have run the device for more than 30 minutes and the information is valid (A, 1.8) with 6 satellites in site.
defective unit? any experience with it?

void setup() 
{ 
    Serial.begin(9600);       
} 
void loop() 
{ 
  if (Serial.available() > 0) 
   { 
        Serial.print(char(Serial.read()));   
   }
}

hello!

I am using the code provided on the wiki. Then I am using the XCTU to read the serial port. Everything just as described on the wiki.

The board I am using is Arduino Uno R3.

 

I do know my GPS positioning. So, when I see the numbers from GPS Shield I know this is not where I ma now. It is like 20-30 miles away. I have ran the GPS for 30+ minutes just in case it is needs to "warm up". I have tried to restart/reset the Arduino with the same result. I have tested the SD card and it is working fine so far.

 

The external antenna I am using is eBay #191105400147

 

Please help! I would really like to make it work correctly.

 

Thank you!

Looks like a defective unit or an antenna. I am going to try a new antenna first.

I had purchased the GPS linksprite shield V3 arduino from ebay couple month ago and figure out that this shield still could not function well. It only turn on the led and noting happens when i uploaded the example code to my arduino leonardo.

 

i'm using this code, and let it on for a day (outdoor) still not working:

 



void setup()
{
Serial.begin(9600);
}
void loop()
{
if (Serial.available() > 0)
{
Serial.print(char(Serial.read()));
}
}


is there any problem with this code??.. do i need jumpers or setting the TX, RX??..

according to datasheet :

 

GPS Shield:

RX - 21

TX - 20

 

Arduino:

TX - 1

RX -  0
