fsa03 gps module for the mobsendat

Post by monkeyiq » Sun Mar 18, 2012 12:41 pm

Does anyone know a good source for the fsa03 GPS used on the mobsendat board?

Alternately, anyone with better electronics knowledge than me care to comment if the GPS-PA6B could be retrofitted to the mobsendat:

Thanks again for making the mobsendat board!

Oh, somebody actually has one of those? :)

I have no idea where to get the bloody FSA03 GPS module.

The GlobalTop FGPMMOPA6B GPS module that you've linked to will certainly be workable, it will basically just be a matter of just wiring up the +3.3V rail, ground, Tx and Rx to the appropriate points and it will basically just work. (Sorry if that short answer isn't too helpful.)

Cool, knowing that there are only the 4 needed connections is very useful information! I'll have another look at the pinout.

Sorry if the request for info on sourcing the fsa03 came across as gruff.

I noticed these things which may or may not be of interest for GPS->arduino boards...

It is probably only an attractive option to me as my soldering ability is a somewhat new and untested one.
