We’ve secured a great value GPS unit to help you know where you are. Sporting the industry standard SirfStarIII chipset, this little guy is tiny! It also includes a magnet so you can attach it to things like a car roof or boat cabin.
The unit is terminated with an RJ11 connector, which you can use as is, or cut off and connect directly to your project or via COM-1001 or COM-1002 breakaway headers.
Note that this unit outputs “RS-232” signals – in fact, it’s not at 12V, but rather at the Vcc voltage. What this does mean is the signals are inverted compared with normal UART serial connections. So while this unit will mate directly with a USB-RS232 converter, for instance, to use with a microcontroller, you will have to see if your micro will allow you to invert incoming serial (check out the DTRXP and CKTXP bits of the BAUDCON register on the 18F25K20 for example).
Alternatively, check out the GPS-1002 that outputs UART serial.
We don’t have a datasheet yet, but there’s so much information out there on the net, you’ll hardly need it.
