Field day GPS

Post by VK3ALB » Mon Mar 23, 2020 7:07 am

I think many of you would know about the excellent Arduino GPS by ON7EQ. David VK5KK and Wayne VK5APN took the original code and modified it to their own requirements. The standout modification was the 10 character Maidenhead display. This matches the resolution of the K7FRY locator page which makes site planning a breeze. I finally got around to making my own version of the GPS building on David and Wayne's code. I changed some of the code to add a temperature display.

I hope the sight of a temperature under 25 degrees is not too distressing to the VK4's.

There's no circuit, as the Neo-7M GPS, i2c display board and DS-1820 only need supply and one or two wires to work. The code is self explanatory.
