Introduction: Linkit One Getting Started With GPS

In this instructable I'm going to show you how to get started with the Linkit One GPS, this will communicate with GPS satellites to give you the location in latitudes and longitude.

Step 1: List of Parts

  • Linkit One
  • GPS Antenna
  • Micro USB Cable

Step 2: Connecting the GPS Antenna

In this step I will show you how to connect the GPS antenna to the Linkit one board, the GPS antenna plugs on the back of the Linkit One board. Make sure you are careful when you plug it in.

Step 3: Micro USB

Next you need to connect a micro USB between the Linkit One and your PC, and install the necessary drivers from the Linkit One official site.

Step 4: Uploading the Code

Use the arduino IDE to upload the code to the board, you need to modify the IDE to make it support the Linkit One board. The cod for this instructable comes with the Linkit One Library.

Step 5: Run Time

The data from the Linkit one can be viewed on a serial monitor, the Arduino IDE had an built in serial monitor.
