Arduino GPS shield is a GPS module breakout board for Arduino. It can make your Arduino as a GPS receiver with SD storage, it is easy to use for recording the position data into SD card by Arduino



It's based on RoyalTek REB-4216 GPS module, and the footprints is compatible with Arduino/MEGA boards. The regular GPS pins (RX, TX) can be connected to D0-D7 of Arduino.

Adding GPS to your Arduino has never been easier. Multiple GPS receivers attach easily to the shield, and with the example sketch (check below), you will be able to locate your exact position within a few meters. Here's where we are. GPS also gives you amazingly accurate time!  It’s suitable for the following applications with Arduino or Arduino compatible boards :

  • Automotive navigation
  • Personal positioning
  • Fleet management
  • Marine navigation


  • With Micro SD interface
  • Active  antenna  design with  high  receive  sensitivity,  compatible normal antenna
  • Extremely fast time to first fix at low signal level
  • UART interface
  • Operation temperature: -40℃ ~ +85℃

Really sensitive
I can't get over the quality and sensitivity of this module. It works perfectly indoors without needing to lean out of a window like you do with a smart phone.

It just does what it says on the tin, and does it well.

I have written an Arduino library (also works with chipKIT etc) to parse and decode the messages into meaningful values: https://github.com/majenkotech/NMEA

Works Great with Arduino Uno and LCD Display
Thanks for a great shield. Good value. Works well with Arduino Uno and LCD Shield. More on my blog at http://davidhoulding.blogspot.com/2014/06/gps-location-sensing-with-itead-gps.html

Great shield
Since version 1.5 of the Arduino IDE you need to add
#include <SPI.h>
to get the example to work, which is listet in download section.

Currently I started to play around with the gps shield.

Fun to play with - great value
I bought one of these and plugged it into a mega 2560 and ran some jumpers so I could use serial3. I also added a 4 X 20 character LCD display.

I'm currently displaying lat, lon, time & date, number of sats visible , speed in mph and even altitude in feet.

I had to hack the TinyGPS header and cpp library a bit to write a function for altitude in feet but it works well.

My wife is fascinated with it when we drive around and she can see the altitude changes as well as our speed and lat-lon coordinates.

Great value for the functionality provided.

I just ordered a second one to make a NTP time server that derives it's time from GPS. This will allow me to keep my network time synced to within a few nanoseconds.
