How can I get Parallax PMB-648 GPS module to work with Arduino UNO? The GPS module works fine with Basic Stamp 2.

I followed the tutorial at http://learn.parallax.com/kickstart/28500 but the Serial Monitor displayed "Reading GPS" and won't display the coordinates.

Try this to see what data, if any, is arriving from the GPS:
Code: [Select]

#include <SoftwareSerial.h>

SoftwareSerial nss(6, 255);            // Yellow wire to pin 6

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(115200);
  nss.begin(4800);
  Serial.println("Reading GPS");
}

void loop() {
  if (nss.available()) {
    Serial.write(nss.read());
  }
}

I still have problems getting Parallax PMB-648 GPS module to work with Arduino UNO. If I try to upload code to Arduino UNO while the GPS module is connected to it, I get messages related to COM ports in use. If I try to compile code that uses TinyGPS library, I get messages saying that TinyGPS and gps are not declared. How can I fix the problems?
