I would not use either one of them. Both force you to use the hardware serial port to communicate with the XBee, making it difficult to use the hardware serial port to communicate with the PC, for debugging purposes.The advantages of the first one are that it stacks on the Arduino more securely, with blocking any pins that it doesn't use.There are no advantages to the second piece of crap.
So what do you recommend?
