Computer Serial to GPS Module

Post by hec95060 » Tue Dec 22, 2015 5:30 pm

Hello,

Im looking to get into playing with GPS more, but would like to to find a module that can connect to a computer via the serial port (using pins 2,3,and 5). I have looked around and most applications use and Arduino or USB. I need to stick to serial communication.

Any suggestions on which module to go with?

Thank you,

Hector

Most of them output a standard UART signal and will work with your serial port. All you need to do is convert the voltage level from RS232 to TTL with something like a MAX232.
