DESCRIPTION

Based off it's predecessor, the I2C GPS Shield, the I2C GPS Shield Rev 2.0 offers the option of choosing between 3.3v and 5v IO levels (Arduino Due compatable) and the option of hooking up an external antenna.

The I2C GPS Shield Rev 2.0 is an Arduino based GPS shield that gives the user access to the most common GPS data via I2C commnication. The onboard microcontroller acts as a NEMA-to-I2C bridge that parses all incoming NMEA data and stores the data in registers. 

Finally an easy way to access GPS data, no more worrying about choosing correct baud rates or trying to figure out the correct voltage level for communications or even parsing the data...it's all done for you. 

You don't even have to worry about pullup resistors for the I2C lines since the shield uses a special logic level translator that maintains I2C signal integrity no matter how many other I2C you decide to add...even in 400 kHz mode!

FEATURES

  • I2C communication up to 400 kHz
  • 66 Channel GPS receiver
  • 10 Hz update rate
  • Ultra Sensitive -165 dBm GPS receiver
  • Optional serial access to NMEA data
  • Stackable shield headers
  • Configurable external interrupts
  • 3D Fix LED indicator
  • Underside battery holder for optional battery backup
  • Optional external antenna connector
  • Choose between 3.3v / 5v IO levels
  • Easily modified to be compatible with Mega, Leonardo and Due

1) Where can I find an example sketch that works with an arduino and your I2C GPS Shield Rev 2.0?

2)Do you also sell an external antenna with a cable (and a pig tail?) to connect it to the GPS shield?

I haven't had a chance to post the code yet. As for the GPS antenna, I'm looking into finding a supplier for external antennas. The U.Fl to SMA adapter to connect to the board is already available on my site.

Thanks for the quick and honest reply. I have taken the trouble to review and update your "I2C GPS SHIELD REV 2.0" documentation to study and confirm my interest in your product (yes, I am). If you wish I can send you that result for your free and unrestricted use and information. I would prefer to send it to your direct email, so the "world" gets to see it after you have updated your own version if you wish.

Please let me know when you post a sketch supporting this unit as I don't want to develop one on my own.
