Arduino MKR GPS Shield

The low power Global Navigation Satellite System receiver shield for your georeferenced and geolocated projects. If you are experimenting with monitoring fleets, high-altitude scientific experiments, or any kind of project requiring localization of devices, the MKR GPS Shield will offer you the functionality you need, and it's plug and play!

The MKR GPS Shield is based on the u-blox SAM-M8Q GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) module. It's meant to be used on top of boards in the MKR format, but thanks to its Eslov connector, it's also possible to hook it up to any board having that kind of connector available using a cable.

This module is designed to operate with different positioning services concurrently. It receives and processes the signals from GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo. It interfaces with Arduino boards either through a serial interface, when used with headers and put on top of a MKR board, or through an I2C interface and a dedicated ESLOV cable supplied as bundle.
