Parallax GPS Receiver Module, $79, designed by MAKE author, kit maker & tech advisory board member Joe Grand! –

“Does your project need to be able to track its position globally? When used in an outdoor environment, the Parallax GPS Receiver with its integrated patch antenna can provide standard raw NMEA0183 strings or specific data from up to 12 satellites via a standard serial interface.

The module provides current time, date, latitude, longitude, altitude, speed and travel direction/heading among other data, and can be used in a host of applications, including navigation, tracking systems, mapping, fleet management and robotics.” [via] – Link.

    What does the GPS module have to do with the kit?

    Why are you linking kits so many times a day in random places?

    we have a lot of new kits we’re shipping, there’s nothing random about where they’re linked.

    The GPS module is almost more useful for projects that require the precise time since the GPS time signal is of very high accuracy.
