I was looking at this page.

And saw an example of how my $GPRMC string could become.

Like this on the example: "$GPRMC,220516,A,5133.82,N,00042.24,W,173.8,231.8,130694,004.2,W*70"

Is this string equal to:

Latitude: 51.3382
Longitude: -00.0422

?

5133.82 is 51 deg 33.82 min
00042.24 is 00 deg 42.24 min

Thank you, got my page to work now, it receives the $GPRMC string and mark the point on my embed Google Maps API.  :)

Though right now I'm looking for a good GSM and GPS module/board, do you guys know any?

Keep in mind that the GSM is just for HTTP requests, nothing else.

Thank you.
