Adding USB Attached GPS to your Raspberry Pi Projects

This quick learning guide will show you everything you need to do to add position tracking to your Pi project using the open source GPS daemon ‘gpsd’ and an inexpensive USB to TTL adapter cable or via direct-wiring to the built-in Pi UART pins

Please note this guide installs a system service called gpsd which you can then query for data. You may be better off just using pure python to read data from the GPS, its less complex in many cases

Build a Stratum 1 NTP (Time) Server

The Raspberry Pi Model B was released in 2012 and, since then, a number of useful applications regarding this device have ensued. However, one particular application that is seldom overlooked when dealing with the Raspberry Pi is its ability to be used as a Stratum 1 NTP server and allow you to synchronize clocks across networks like the Internet. For me, this useful trick has actually made my entire office far more efficient.

Interfacing the Neo-6M GPS Module & Raspberry Pi with LCD Readout

One of the coolest embedded platforms like the Raspberry Pi has given makers and DIYers the ability to get location data easily using GPS module and thus build things that rely on location. With the amount of power packed by the Raspberry Pi, it certainly will be quite awesome to build GPS based projects with the same cheap GPS modules and that is the focus of this post. Today in this project we will Interface GPS module with Raspberry Pi 3.

The goal of this project is to collect location data (longitude and latitude) via UART from a GPS module and display them display on a 16×2 LCD, so if you are not familiar with the way the 16×2 LCD works with the Raspberry Pi, this is another great opportunity to learn.Read More

Installing the Keyestudio Raspberry PI GPS Plate

This Keyestudio KS0216 Raspberry Pi GPS Plate (shield) features high performance and low power consumption. It utilizes the NEO-6M Module developed by U-blox. The GPS Module is connected through the 2*20 expansion pins of Raspberry Pi. It features a large size ceramic antenna, sending locating information to GPS through the serial port. It can track up to 8 satellites on 50 channels at high speed, and it produces very accurate location data.

Plug the GPS Plate into Raspberry Pi 3. Upload your code to Raspberry Pi 3, and you can find your exact location within a few meters. It also provides you with very accurate time! It can be used in car navigation, personal positioning, fleet management, navigation and so on.Read More

Raspberry PI: Connecting a Neo-6M  GPS Module

I built a project using a Neo-6M  GPS Module with the Raspberry PI. Now there are several USB solutions, and apps that work with them, but I wanted to show how to use a $20 GPS module with a a serial UART, and Python code to decode the NMEA strings. Then you can write your own GPS interface, or combine the data with Google Maps.

Hardware Setup:

The first step is to connect the GPS module to the Raspberry PI. There are only 4 wires involved, so it’s a simple connection.Read More
