I saw that the max current is only 50 mA per pin so obviously it's not enough to power my GPS module.
you do not power a GPS module from an output pin
consumptive (does this word exist ? :p)
And wouldn't you do that via an output pin?
I only need GPS data once a minute (at best) and would rather keep power usage as low as possible.
is this a reasonable solution for myself as well as the OP?
my project was to connect 2 GPS modules on a Arduino Mega 2560
