I am trying this too with no luck. I used your code to check mine and with yours I was able to get the coordinates (GPS) on the serial printer in the MAC where the Tinyduino is connected. Via blue tooth I can connect to a Chromebook and I am able to send from the chromebook a message but it seems it does not work the other way. Any ideas?

TinyDuino Processors & TinyShields / GPS CHECK

I have been trying to get the GPS working, but it is still not. I did have some luck a few weeks ago, but it seems now that the actual unit is no longer working. Is there a way to test it?

Dear Ben,
My apologies for my delayed response.
I have been experimenting with the GPS. For the most part, the GPS started working once I followed these steps:

Connect to computer> upload program > wait for it to get signal > use it!!! or turn off > turn on before use..

There were a couple of times where it did not start the card but have not figure out why.

My GPS is a Telit SE868 V2.

As for the power. Is there a charger for the tiniduino batteries that independent of the PC?


Dear ALL,
I have been trying the GPS Cat Tracker for a week or so.

Yesterday, I installed the "TinyShield_GPS_V2" script. It uploaded to the board fine, the board starts getting reads from the GPS and writing on the SD card. However, if I remove the SD card to download the data and put it back afterward, nothing is written on the card. This also happens if I turn OFF and ON the board. In both cases, it seems that the board fails to initialize the SD card. Do you guys know if there is a way round these two situations?

If NOT, is there a way to "delay" the GPS readings to get one every two or five seconds instead of every second. I think this may give me more battery life. I am not planning to use this GPS as soon as I disconnected from the computer and would like to NOT have to bring the computer with me. I also need the small battery (the same sold by Tinycircuits).

Any help will be appreciated.
