GPS Module differences

Postby RadarBoy » Fri Jun 26, 2009 5:15 pm


I am looking to build one of these GPS speedometers (well, it will be a simpler version that will show just the speed, similar to what ericw wrote about in the other topic). I was wondering though if there were any cheaper GPS modules that could be used instead of the V23993-A1035D. What about the V23993-A1037-A for example? It's half the price (but might need an antenna which would add a few $?) but would it be a suitable replacement?

Thanks in advance for any input anyone might have

As far as the communication protocol it should work.
Hooking up an antenna might be nontrivial, if you have solder pads out and need an RF connector.
