Raspberry PI GPS Add-on

via Itead
SKU IT-IM131227001


The Raspberry PI GPS add-on lets you used the NEO-6 GPS module with your Raspberry Pi.

GPS data (latitude, longitude and current time) is transmitted to your Raspberry Pi via serial.

This is compatible with the Model B+


We've made instructions on how to use the GPS module with your Raspberry Pi are available here.
