Does the kit come with ribbon cables to connect each module or What? I got only the modules. However I got a coin cell battery holder but it wont fit in the stack. I ordered the battery also but what module does it hook to?  How does it power up? Any help out there? Liveone1232003@yahoo.com is my email.

Hello,

This Overview page may help clear up some questions about how our boards work together: https://tinycircuits.com/pages/tinyduino-overview

For the coin cell battery board, I am assuming the Coin Cell TinyDuino is what you currently have. The coin cell option is incompatible with lithium batteries due to its existing power source being the coin cell battery - so there is nowhere to use a lithium battery in this scenario. as you have found.

It sounds like you want to use a GPS TinyShield. Unfortunately, as noted on the GPS product page in the power requirements, the GPS requires more current than the coin cell option can supply, so you would need a processor compatible with the lithium batteries in order to power the GPS board. I would recommend the TinyZero: https://tinycircuits.com/collections/processors/products/tinyzero-processor

I hope that helps answer some of your questions. Let me know if you have any more!

Thanks,
Réna
