Tips and questions relating to the GPS modules from SFE
By maherhome

Sorry, I'm pretty new to reading NMEA from a GPS chip, but when we start reading data from this guy ... duct_id=83 using the defaults (9600 baud), the NMEA messages are "bunched" where they report about 10 seconds of sentences (looking at the message timestamps) over about 6 seconds, pause 4 seconds, and repeat.

I was assuming I'd get the messages "in real time" (1 message per second - in terms of the message timestamps)
