Description

The All new GPS shield from SmartElex made to work great with your either UNO or Leonardo Arduinos and is designed to log data to an SD card. Or you can leave the SD card out and use the GPS for a geocaching project. This shield comes with most popular Quectel L86 Module

If your project is going to be inside the enclosure, you’ll love this shield as it has external antenna support. Simply connect an External active GPS Antenna to antenna connector on the shield and the module will automatically switch over to use the antenna. You can then place the antenna wherever you wish.
