GPS Module NEO-7M - (GPS / GLONASS Signal)

  • RM55.00

  • Product Code: GPS Module NEO-7M
  • Availability: In Stock

 

Features

  • Concurrent reception of up to GNSS (GPS/QZSS, GLONASS)
  • Able to use GPS as a really accurate clock, this board provides a PPS (pulse per second) signal. This is a highly accurate clock pulse coming off a pin on the GPS that NTP can use. If you have such a GPS the resource below is a must read.
  • Compact and excellent performance
  • Micro USB port, you can use general mobile phone cable to connect this GPS module to your computer. No need USB-TTL, convenient for use
  • Onboard ceramic passive antenna, able to search for the satellite in open area, and an external antenna is optional
  • SMA port, convenient for connecting with the external active antenna, stronger satellite search ability
  • A reserved TTL port, convenient for connecting to USB-TTL or external single chip microcomputer
  • Back-up rechargeable battery
  • UART TTL socket
  • EEprom to save configuration settings
  • Support hot start

 

 

* PPS should be connected to the clock pulse output (CPOUT) of a MCU. This pin is unconnected if GPS module is connected to a computer.

 

 

Connect to an Arduino

/* Connection to UNO
VCC - Arduino 5v
GND - Arduino GND
TXD - Arduino D0
RXD - No connect
PPS - No connect

If want to use this on Leonardo, have to rename all the "Serial" to "Serial1"
