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!
