With this project you can connect a GPS receiver to ORbit16™ and see your coordinates and time/date from satellites on a display. This project is identical to GPS Viewer but uses only Nokia 3310 display and is made to be low power / battery-operated. In this manner is useful for Geocaching purposes.
For further information on connections please read the GPS Viewer project first.
You must do some modifications to ORbit16™ board in order to use this project:
- Remove IC1 (7805CV voltage regulator)
- Short Input and output of IC1 (are marked with ‘I’ and ‘O’)
- Obtain a 3xAA battery holder
- Connect the battery holder to X2 external power connector
Provided schematic in Eagle format are the same used for GPS Logger project, so S1 is not used in this project. Schematic is to be used with Nokia 3310 LCD and EM406 GPS receiver.
