I have some questions about the gps hat for raspberry pi bef

by purplenate26 on Wed Dec 16, 2015 1:21 pm

The subject is supposed to say before I buy.
I have questions about the below product.
https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-ult ... spberry-pi

I have shaky hands, can I get the factory to do the soldering? As long as some one else does the soldering I can put it together myself if all that’s required is screwing, snapping, twisting etc. My sister can help me too. Can I buy the Pi from here or do I need to buy one from elsewhere. I'm not sure of what all I need.

If I understand correctly I need:
ultimate gps hat for raspberry pi B+
External antenna kit
Antenna adaptor kit
Coin cell battery

Any recommendations on a case, I have no preference on whether it's ugly or pretty.

This is to turn my computer into a stratum 1 time source. I use Linux and NTP.

Thanks Nate.

You can get your Pi here.

Unfortunately, we can't do the soldering for you. Sorry.

Your parts list looks complete, although you might also want the brass standoffs listed on the GPS HAT product page.

Cases are a little more difficult, due to clearances. However, I believe this case will work for you. I think there's enough room for the lid to fit.:
