In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to use the Cytron SKM53 GPS Shield. SKM53 GPS Shield is a newly designed shield from Cytron. This GPS shield is a shield version of SKM53 GPS Starter Kit designed for Arduino lovers,
By using SKM53 GPS module, we can actually view our current UTC time, date, latitude, longitude and so on. In further application, it can used to interface with our smartphone, microcontroller such as Arduino or PIC, and so forth to know our own location. Meanwhile, when we use it, we need to expose it to the sky to capture the stronger signal. As an example, if we in the home, we need to put the GPS module near the window to get the signal. Otherwise, we will not receive the signal by GPS antenna if we inside a closed window room.
