How to make Adafruit Ultimate GPS wireless

by TommasoV on Tue Mar 23, 2021 9:52 am

Hi, so I have a quick question I had recently programmed my gps using on an Arduino but I am not sure how to make the gps wireless so that I can use the gps without it being hooked up to the computer or Arduino and still be able to read the coordinates off of my computer.

You can connect the GPS module to a microcontroller that does BLE or Wifi. How do you want to want to see or use the GPS data on your computer?

I want to see the latitude and longitude of the gps on my computer through the Arduino app which I can. But my question is how do I make that happen without connecting it to a computer. Is there a way for it to work wirelessly? Or does it have to be connected to something?

You can transmit the data wirelessly, but getting it to the Arduino IDE's Serial Monitor will require another microcontroller connected to the computer providing the Serial connection.

You wouldn't need a second microcontroller hooked to the computer if you used Wifi and read the data in a web browser, or some other program that knows how to talk to the network. You could also connect the GPS module to a microcontroller with BLE and make it work like a wireless keyboard, then let it write data into a word processor or something.

It's probably possible to write programs that will listen to Wifi or BLE and pass the information through to a Serial port, but I don't know of any existing programs that do.

What Arduino board are you using? Can you mount a shield or FeatherWing on it?
