OLinuXino A10 GPS modules?
« on: June 13, 2014, 08:14:59 AM »
Hello,

I'm planning to buy a GPS module and wanted to check with you whether this module will work with OLinuXino A10?

I was thinking of this GPS module from Adafruit:

 - http://www.adafruit.com/products/746

Will this module be able to work on the OLinuXino A10? Someone tried that before?

I noticed there is a MOD-GPS module on the olimex.com site, but I would generally prefer something I can build and work with, like the GPS module above. If that's not possible, well then I will probably go with the MOD-GPS one.

Thanks,
Marin

The GPS uses TTY-Level serial, so the serial port on the A10 will be fine. You will probably need the 40pin 1.27mm to 2.54mm connector for the A10 to get at the pins:
