GPS Logger Shield and GPS Module

by Blake81 on Sat Dec 29, 2012 12:44 pm

Hi. I asked here before, and you told me that this GPS would work with the GPS Logger Shield. Can you tell me the order that the wires of this GPS would connect to the GPS connection on the shield? Thanks.

Does your module come with a connector on the end? If it is compatible with one of the connecotrs on-board, you should be able to just plug it in. Otherwise you will need to solder directly.

GPS Pin 6 (black) ground
GPS Pin 5 (red) +5v

The manufacturer's spec sheet does not specify if the TTL serial is 5v compatible or not, so to be safe you would need to connect through the level-converter.

GPS Pin 1 (Yellow - TTL Out) - Pin 3 of the EM406A connector.
GPS Pin 2 (Blue - TTL In) - Pin 4 of the EM406A connector.

Thank you. It doesn't directly come with a connector, but I can put one on it. On Argent's site, pin 5 of the GPS says "3.7-6v power", so it sounds like that will be fine to run 5 volts.
