New Kit! GPS Logging shield for Arduino

I’m so very sleepy today but I should post about this before a nap…After many many many revisons, my GPS data-logging shield is done! Ive spent the last few weeks taking lots of data, so I think its pretty solid. The design supports 4 different (popular) modules, and writes data to an SD card as a plain text file. For geo-sensor tracking, I wrote a sketch that will log 3 analog sensor values along with the location, date and time. Many people have asked me over the years about DIY GPS loggers so hopefully they will be happy now. :)

There’s even some ideas for power management, and waterproof enclosures

You can pick one up at the Adafruit webshop right now, along with a rather nice GPS receiver module.

Phew…I think I’m going to take a break from designing new Arduino shields for a bit: I’m pretty happy with the 5 I’ve got and there are many other neat projects clamoring for attention.
