$13.95
SKU 834627

Looking for a value GPS module for your Arduino, Raspberry Pi, ArduCopter or other project? Now available from PMD Way is the U-blox NEO-6M GPS Module.

This isn't the smallest GPS module in our range however for the price it's much more affordable. What we do like is the onboard SMA connection for an external antenna, and the USB interface for power and direct connection to a PC for data.

The U-blox NEO-6M GPS Module is ideal for all sorts of development boards, Arduino projects and more. It can operate on voltages between 3 and 6V DC, and has a simple serial output which blasts out the NMEA GPS data at 9600 baud.

Arduino users - this works perfectly with the TinyGPS++ library
