Hi,

I'm just fiddling with ARM board and related programming. I'm looking 
for a GPS module that can be connected to the AT91SAM7S board that I 
have... Please let me know of the choices that are available... when I 
google I get the info about GPS RX which are already packaged in a 
device...

I found this product: SE4150L 
(http://www.skyworksinc.com/uploads/documents/SE4150L_DS.pdf)... not 
sure if this can be connected to the board....

Any pointers to related stuff done earlier will also be helpful (for eg. 
just getting the coordinates from the GPS module and print it to the 
screen)....

Thanks.

Hi,
I don't know the board you're using but a quick search on the internet 
revealed that it should have a UART interface. So you could easily use a 
GPS-Module which has an UART interface as well.
Have a look here:

Here are two different ones on sale. They have a good guide right here:

Hope this helps.

Hi,

first of all you can use vitually any GPS module as (almost) all of them 
have a UART interface and position output in NMEA format (parsers in 
many languages available as sourcecode, ask google).

Manufacturers:
ublox (Switzerland, own chipset, very reliable, not really low-cost)
fasttrax (Finland, SIRF based, besides other modules one that runs with 
1.8V)
quectel (China, competitive price)
etc. etc.

If you just want to evaluate any module Olimex MOD_GPS may be 
interesting for you.

When you have any special needs just ask..
