This breadboard-ready module with a built-in patch antenna and coprocessor tracks up to 12 satellites. It provides standard NMEA0183 strings in "raw" mode for any microcontroller, preformatted data in “smart” mode for easy use with BASIC Stamp applications.

The module provides current time, date, latitude, longitude, altitude, speed and travel direction/heading among other data, and can be used in a host of applications, including navigation, tracking systems, mapping, fleet management and robotics.

The Parallax GPS Receiver Module includes a programmable Parallax SX microprocessor and open-source control firmware for advanced users who wish to modify it. This source code is not supported by Parallax.
