This GPS is a very capable GPS for the price and size. Compatible with UART capable devices including Arduino, Raspberry Pi, MSP430, and MSP432.
Power the module and it will automatically acquire satellite signals and a position fix. Once it has a position fix the module will blink the on board LED. This LED will continue to blink while the module has a position fix.
Three different power modes (refer to Receiver Description Including Protocol Specification for information on configuring the operating mode)
Two continuous operating modes:
Maximum Performance Mode – continuously uses the acquisition engine, resulting in the best possible time to first fix (TTFF)
Eco Mode – optimizes the use of the acquisition engine to minimize current consumption
One intermittent operating mode
Power Save Mode – draws only 11mA – Utilizes cyclic tracking, with configurable update periods, which reduces the average power consumption significantly
