With the GPS Shield you can add GPS functionality to your Arduino. A connector for the popular GPS receiver is populated on the board, and footprints for and connectors are also made available (connectors are not soldered on or included and can be found below in the related items). The regular GPS pins (RX, TX, PPS, etc.) are also broken out to a 10-pin 0.1" pitch header, and a small protoyping area is also provided.
The DLINE/UART switch switches the GPS module's input/output between Arduino's standard TX/RX pins and digital pins 2 and 3.
An ON/OFF switch is included which controls power to the GPS module. Finally, the Arduino reset switch is also brought out.
The shield also includes the footprint for a to provide battery backup to the optional EB-85A gps module.GPS modules are not included with the GPS Shield, and only the EM-406 connector is populated. Headers are also not installed, we recommend the and .
