The Phidget GPS provides the longitude and latitude of the board's position in signed decimal degree format.

The position accuracy (best case) is 2.5m CEP (Circular Error of Probability).

The 1040 also provides altitude, heading and velocity as well as the time and date. It will also let you know when it has a satellite fix.

The PhidgetGPS has a 3V rechargeable lithium battery to provide "hot starts" by remembering its previous positions. With a live battery, the 1040 can perform a signal re-acquisition in less than 1 second. The battery provides up to 1 month of operation before having to be recharged. Recharging an empty battery takes 24 hours.

Comes packaged with:

  • An external active GPS antenna 
  • A hardware mounting kit (4 nuts and bolts (M3), 4 plastic spacers)
