arduino and gpsI just bought on eBay a GY-NEO6MV2 NEO-6M board for less than 5 USD. Looks neat, came with a small antenna, and get easily a fix from nearby satellites ... sweet!
Originally I plan to use it as a GPS based clock, but maybe it will become more? Who knows. Anyway, this is a technical page for future reference.
Points of interrest
Points of concern
AntennaAntenna ain't not the strongest, need to be close to a window to get the signal. Could be improved?
Time message (NMEA ZDA)By default the standard time message NMEA ZDA is no issued (at least on my model), but there's different workarounds.
Use UBLOX custom messageSeems the
EDit: and it works ! I got the below line:
$PUBX,04,113011.00,041017,300611.00,1969,15D,-45227909,0.000,21*73Meaning it is now UTC 11:30:11.00 (+9h for Tokyo), on the 4th October 2017. Perfect.
Enable the ZDASeems you need to send some CFG-MSG to force the frequency of the ZDA message... will call this option B.
