FLORA GPS Starter kit question

by pithhelmet on Thu May 30, 2013 7:01 pm

Hi Everyone -

I need to know, before i buy the GPS starter kit will it also work with the direction/compass kit?

AND

Using both the GPS and compass kit at the same time, is there a ethernet output module that i can include?

thank you

The GPS and compass modules should both work with the same Flora, but Ethernet will be a problem.

The Flora is designed to run wearable electronics. Ethernet is a wired protocol. Put them together and you get a backpack containing 100 meters of CAT5 cable.

There are Ethernet shields for the regular Arduino (http://www.adafruit.com/products/201) and there's an Arduino that has Ethernet built in (http://www.adafruit.com/products/418). Standard Arduinos will talk to the Flora GPS and compass modules, but getting the Flora to speak Ethernet will take a bit more work.
When you void a product warranty, you give up your right to sue the manufacturer if something goes wrong and accept full responsibility for whatever happens next. And then you truly own the product.
