GPS Module for Raspberry Pi: Microstack precision

The Microstack GPS Module for Raspberry Pi is both a high-precision module and a very low-consumption module, regardless of the operation mode selected (acquisition, tracking or AlwaysLocate).

It offers no less than 22 tracking channels for 66 acquisition channels and delivers its measurements quickly and with a small margin of error thanks to its built-in patch antenna.

It also has an internal data logger that operates without a host or external flash. In addition to the “tracking” and “acquisition” modes, the special “AlwaysLocate” mode truly saves energy by automatically placing the device on standby when the GPS cannot detect any movement.

Uses for the L80 GPS Module for Raspberry Pi

The L80 GPS Module for Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi 2 is a plug and play module designed to guarantee full compatibility with the Raspberry Pi A, Raspberry Pi B, Raspberry Pi A+, Raspberry Pi B+ and the Raspberry Pi 2 model B.

It’s a very easy system, simply use the Microstack adapter baseboard to connect up to 2 Microstack modules simultaneously. Once you’ve connected the adapter baseboard to your Raspberry Pi, you can plug your L80 GPS Module into the adapter’s orange zone (SPI zone) (see the below diagram). Then you can immediately begin programming and designing your prototypes!
