A few simple questions about the Adafruit, from a potential

by matt4x4 on Fri Nov 27, 2015 4:27 pm

Hello, I am VERY VERY interested in this product and just need to ask some simple questions.

1) Can this product be used as a bicycle GPS tracking device?
2) Do I need to use something like the Adruino to be able to use Adafruit as a bicycle GPS tracking device?
3) Is it possible to track where Adafruit is with a computer hooked up to the internet, or a cell phone with google maps?
4) Is there a movement detector on the product that will start GPS tracking and send the coordinates to my cell or email?

Thank You!

its possible, you will need to write some code to do exactly what you want, we have two relevant tutorials

OK Thanks a lot for the quick response. I will click those links and read more.

Just another quick question, that first tutorial states I need a Adafruit IO which is not available yet and is in Beta.

Oh, and how can I find out where to buy Adafruit accessories like the hard 2dbi antenna, piezzo buzzer, 2dbi GPS antenna because the shipping is the same price as the total.

Thanks Again!
