VPN1513 GPS Smart Module


Product Description


The GPS sensor for this module was discontinued and we cannot longer manufacture it.

The SimplyTronics GPS smart module provides a high quality, highly sensitive GPS receiver with an external antenna (not included) to provide a complete GPS solution for microcontroller applications. The high-performance SiRF III chipset features 20 parallel satellite tracking channels for fast acquisition of NMEA0183 data for robotics navigation, telemetry or experimentation.

The GPS smart module also features a Propeller co-processor for easy interface with any microcontrollers. The Propeller is also fully reprogrammable and includes access to all 32 IO pins, allowing the GPS smart module to be easily transformed into a standalone device.
