Sharing my interactive Solar GPS Logger w/ LCD

by 1chicagodave on Tue Sep 10, 2013 7:54 pm

Still very much a work in progress, but finally got to a presentable point in the process!

Using Arduino UNO, Ultimate GPS Logger Shield, an LCD from (another company....for now), a few buttons, and a "Skeleton Case"....
this was created -

I'm waiting on a different/better enclosure and screen from Adafruit right now. Then I can button things up a bit nicer, get the screen out of the way of the GPS antenna, and make it a bit more durable. It's not entirely solar powered. More "solar-assisted" as the USB battery uses solar panel to help keep the battery charged. But, I know I'm using more mA's than the sun is putting back into my source! :!:

I plan on using it to help me with my final project for my GIS class (Geographic Information Systems) to help me collect & track location-based data. So, I'm sure I'll be adding a few other sensors & features to it soon!

If anyone has any questions...or better yet, advice/suggestions....post away!

Thanks!
Please forgive my hyperanthropomorphization.
Every answer reveals new questions.
And, yes... there's always a better way to 'do that'.

Nice. I want to build something similar when my order from the local adafruit distributor arrives.
Will you post the code when your project is finished?

Dave, can you post the code so we can see how you displayed what you have? Easier to suggest/give feedback when we see the code but otherwise cool project.
