I have another issue. I understand the code and got it to compile correctly and I ran the static_test example to understand the messages; however, I am now trying to edit the gps_test example to fit my MN5010HS GPS. I suck terribly at hardware so I do don't get anything to output except the messages in the setup function. So for any hardware adept people this is the datasheet http://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/GPS/MN5010HS_DS_080905.pdf
and for my connections I have tried TX to TX and RX to RX and TX to RX and RX to TX with VCC at 3.3 and ground at ground.
