Tips and questions relating to the GPS modules from SFE
By lewie.catt

i have purchased a D2523T for a 3rd year university project.
i have it powered up and is sending data (monitored by the oscilloscope on the Tx pin).

firstly, i was wondering what the module sends in the default mode?

secondly, wondering on how to connect the module to u-center, and if it is neccassary. Do you use a max323 chip to convert 3.3V-to-RS232. and then just plug that into the serial port of the computer? and U-center recognise the deivce, allowing you to configure it?

any help would be great.
