Adafruit Ultimate GPS Logger Shield



GPS sensors are designed to provide precision location and time data but don’t function very well on their own – they need something that can collect and do something with the data! This GPS shield for Arduino is designed to connect a high quality GPS sensor to your Arduino Uno, Leonardo, Adafruit Metro, or SparkFun Redboard. Together the GPS and your programmed Arduino can be used to make things like a GPS compass, a super-accurate clock, or positioning device.

The shield has the GPS sensor, an onboard microSD card slot (for data logging / other general use), and a coin cell battery for up to 7 years backup. The onboard u.FL connector allows an external active antenna to be used in place of the internal patch antenna.

GPS can be a little overwhelming for beginners, but like most Adafruit products, there is an excellent tutorial going through the basics linked below.

Please Note: Minor soldering is required to attach the included breakaway headers.


  • Dimensions: 69 x 53 x 6.7mm (2.7 x 2.1 x 0.26in)
  • Low power module – only 20mA current draw, half of most GPS’s
  • MicroSD card slot for datalogging onto a removable card
  • Built-in datalogging to flash
  • Internal patch antenna + u.FL connector for external active antenna
  • Assembled & tested shield for Arduino Uno, Leonardo, Adafruit Metro, SparkFun Redboard
