GPS Shield & Due

by eggie5 on Tue Feb 18, 2014 7:38 pm

Does the GPS Shield (http://www.adafruit.com/products/1272) work w/ the Arduino Due? I know it says, it doesn't, but the motor shield used to not be compatible w/ Due but now it is.

If it is not compatible w/ Due, can I use http://www.adafruit.com/products/746 ?

Both the shield and the breakout are technically compatible with the Due, but the Adafruit library and example sketches need considerable modifications to work with the Due.

Are you aware of whether any such modifications are available? I too would like to use the Ultimate GPS Logger Shield with a Due.

I'll try to find some time to port the library. I'm pretty busy right now, so it might take a week or two. I'll post back.

Download the latest version of the Adafruit_GPS library for Arduino Due support

NOTE: Due support is hardcoded for Serial1. You must connect to RX1 and TX1. If you're using the GPS Shield, jumper from shield TX and RX to Due RX1 and TX1.

I tried this latest version of the Adafruit_GPS library for Arduino Due support and wired the Ultimate GPS shield to the Due as suggested and it worked just fine. Thanks to Adafruit_Support_Rick for your effort and input.
