Introduction: GPS Test 1 - Reading NMEA Data Using an Arduino

About: Hi, my name is Mike and I am from London, England. I really like to make things and in particular like to do creative things with Arduinos and electronics. Other hobbies include astrophotography and sailing....


his is an SC-200 GPS Mouse, advertised as a Speed Camera Advisor for your car. Currently available from Maplins (UK) for £14.99. I have found out where on the PCB the serial data could be read from the GPS module. Using pins 0 and 1 (Serial RX/TX) on the Arduino and reading data in at 38400 baud you can see the NMEA data coming directly off the GPS module.
