Description

This Grove - GPS module is a cost-efficient and field-programmable gadget armed with a SIM28 (U-blox 6 is old version) and serial communication configuration.

It features 22 tracking / 66 acquisition channel GPS receiver.

The sensitivity of tracking and acquisition both reach up to -160dBm, making it a great choice for personal navigation projects and location services, as well as an outstanding one among products of the same price class.

Features Input Voltage: 3.3/5V BaudRate: 4800 - 57600( u-blox version) BaudRate: 9600 - 115200 Default BaudRate: 9600 Supports NMEA and U-Blox 6 protocols. Low power consumption Baud rates configurable Grove compatible interface

For all Grove users (especially beginners), we provide you guidance PDF documents. Please download and read through Preface - Getting Started and Introduction to Grove before your using of the product. From:For more detail, please visit: http://www.seeedstudio.com/item_detail.html?p_id=959

Install u-center. Upload the code below to your Arduino/Seeeduino and then open u-center.
1) Click Receiver -> Port and select the COM port that the Arduino is using.
2) Click Receiver -> Baudrate and make sure 9600 is selected.
3) Click View -> Text Console and you should get a window that will stream NMEA data.
4) Open the serial monitor,You can see as show below:

![enter image description here][1]
To View data in Google Earth:
1) Click File -> Database Export -> Google Earth KML
2) This Should launch Google Earth with the history that was captured by u-center.
3) Alternatively, data can be recorded by pressing the red circle on the toolbar which will then ask you where you want to save the record.
4) When you have captured enough data, click the black square to stop recording.
5) You can then convert the .ubx file generated to KML by using uploading the ubx file to GPSVisualizer
With Raspberry Pi
1. You need a Raspberry Pi and a GrovePi or GrovePi+.
2. You should have completed configuring the development environment, otherwise follow here. 
3. Connection 
Plug Grove GPS into grovepi socket RPISER.
4. Navigate to the demos' directory: 
   cd yourpath/GrovePi/Software/Python/
To see the code
   nano grove_gps.py   # "Ctrl+x" to exit #
import serial, time
import smbus
import math
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO
import struct
import sys
ser = serial.Serial('/dev/ttyAMA0',  9600, timeout = 0) #Open the serial port at 9600 baud
ser.flush()

class GPS:
    #The GPS module used is a Grove GPS module For more detail, please visit: http://www.seeedstudio.com/item_detail.html?p_id=959
    inp=[]
    # Refer to SIM28 NMEA spec file 
    GGA=[]

    #Read data from the GPS
    def read(self): 
        while True:
            GPS.inp=ser.readline()
            if GPS.inp[:6] =='$GPGGA': # GGA data , packet 1, has all the data we need
                break
            time.sleep(0.1)
        try:
            ind=GPS.inp.index('$GPGGA',5,len(GPS.inp))  #Sometimes multiple GPS data packets come into the stream. Take the data only after the last '$GPGGA' is seen
            GPS.inp=GPS.inp[ind:]
        except ValueError:
            print ""
        GPS.GGA=GPS.inp.split(",")  #Split the stream into individual parts
        return [GPS.GGA]

        lat=GPS.GGA[2]
        lat_ns=GPS.GGA[3]
        long=GPS.GGA[4]
        long_ew=GPS.GGA[5]
        fix=GPS.GGA[6]
        sats=GPS.GGA[7]
        alt=GPS.GGA[9]
        return [time,fix,sats,alt,lat,lat_ns,long,long_ew]

f=open("gps_data.csv",'w')  #Open file to log the data
f.write("name,latitude,longitude\n")    #Write the header to the top of the file
ind=0
while True:
    try:
        x=g.read()  #Read from GPS
        [t,fix,sats,alt,lat,lat_ns,long,long_ew]=g.vals()   #Get the individial values
        print "Time:",t,"Fix status:",fix,"Sats in view:",sats,"Altitude",alt,"Lat:",lat,lat_ns,"Long:",long,long_ew
        s=str(t)+","+str(float(lat)/100)+","+str(float(long)/100)+"\n"  
        f.write(s)  #Save to file
        time.sleep(2)
    except IndexError:
        print "Unable to read"
    except KeyboardInterrupt:
        f.close()
        print "Exiting"
        sys.exit(0)
  1. Run the demo. sudo python grove_gps.py
  2. Result Note: GPS is better outdoor using, recommand you to put your raspberry pi to the window or any place outdoor.

enter image description here SIM28 module Note:

  1. GPS Bee has change the module as SIM28 which the same footprint as origin version.
  2. You should use "SIMCom GPS DEMO" tools to receive SIM28 module data.
  3. Open SIMCom_GPS_DEMO tools, go to Module->properties->module->select SIM28. enter image description here
  4. Open SIMCom_GPS_DEMO tools, go to Module->connect. Select the serial port which the GPS module used. enter image description here
