Looking for an I²C GPS

Post by shinagan » Thu Jun 18, 2015 12:24 pm

Hi everyone,

I have a project involving a Raspberry Pi that would need a GPS. However, the UART is already used and I see that most of the GPS use it. Would you know of a GPS that:
- works at 3.3 V
- supports I²C
- and the eXtra: has a library to get the GPS to work quickly. If it's written for Arduino that could do the trick, I'll change what has to be changed.

Some GPS modules, as U-blox Max-M8, can communicate using UART, I2C or SPI, depending of how you connect some pins to VDD or GND.
Search for 'gpsd' and you may find something ready to be used on linux.
