hmm does anyone successfully got a GPS running over the
SoftSerial Port?

 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I have an Arduino - Duemilanove 328, I connect the GSM / GPRS Module - SM5100B and GPS Shield with EM-406A.
Shield calls connect to each TX (1) and RX (0). How do I connect power and functioning properly.

 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

had garbled output like everyone else... but now...

Problem was that data was INVERTED...

do this:
NewSoftSerial nss(2, 3, true);


Here is my modified code:

Code:
#include <NewSoftSerial.h>
#include <TinyGPS.h>

/* This sample code demonstrates the normal use of a TinyGPS object.
   It requires the use of NewSoftSerial, and assumes that you have a
   4800-baud serial GPS device hooked up on pins 2(rx) and 3(tx).
*/

TinyGPS gps;
NewSoftSerial nss(2, 3, true); // my gps data is inverted!!

void gpsdump(TinyGPS &gps);
bool feedgps();
void printFloat(double f, int digits = 2);

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(4800);
  nss.begin(4800);
  
  Serial.print("Testing TinyGPS library v. "); Serial.println(TinyGPS::library_version());
  Serial.println("by Mikal Hart");
  Serial.println();
  Serial.print("Sizeof(gpsobject) = "); Serial.println(sizeof(TinyGPS));
  Serial.println();
}

void loop()
{
  bool newdata = false;
  unsigned long start = millis();

  // Every 5 seconds we print an update
  while (millis() - start < 5000)
  {
    if (feedgps())
      newdata = true;
  }
  
  if (newdata)
  {
    Serial.println("Acquired Data");
    Serial.println("-------------");
    gpsdump(gps);
    Serial.println("-------------");
    Serial.println();
  }
}

void printFloat(double number, int digits)
{
  // Handle negative numbers
  if (number < 0.0)
  {
     Serial.print('-');
     number = -number;
  }

  // Round correctly so that print(1.999, 2) prints as "2.00"
  double rounding = 0.5;
  for (uint8_t i=0; i<digits; ++i)
    rounding /= 10.0;
  
  number += rounding;

  // Extract the integer part of the number and print it
  unsigned long int_part = (unsigned long)number;
  double remainder = number - (double)int_part;
  Serial.print(int_part);

  // Print the decimal point, but only if there are digits beyond
  if (digits > 0)
    Serial.print(".");

  // Extract digits from the remainder one at a time
  while (digits-- > 0)
  {
    remainder *= 10.0;
    int toPrint = int(remainder);
    Serial.print(toPrint);
    remainder -= toPrint;
  }
}

void gpsdump(TinyGPS &gps)
{
  long lat, lon;
  float flat, flon;
  unsigned long age, date, time, chars;
  int year;
  byte month, day, hour, minute, second, hundredths;
  unsigned short sentences, failed;

  gps.get_position(&lat, &lon, &age);
  Serial.print("Lat/Long(10^-5 deg): "); Serial.print(lat); Serial.print(", "); Serial.print(lon);
  Serial.print(" Fix age: "); Serial.print(age); Serial.println("ms.");
  
  feedgps(); // If we don't feed the gps during this long routine, we may drop characters and get checksum errors

  gps.f_get_position(&flat, &flon, &age);
  Serial.print("Lat/Long(float): "); printFloat(flat, 5); Serial.print(", "); printFloat(flon, 5);
  Serial.print(" Fix age: "); Serial.print(age); Serial.println("ms.");

  feedgps();

  Serial.print("  Fix age: ");  Serial.print(age); Serial.println("ms.");
  
  feedgps();

  Serial.print("Alt(cm): "); Serial.print(gps.altitude()); Serial.print(" Course(10^-2 deg): "); Serial.print(gps.course()); Serial.print(" Speed(10^-2 knots): "); Serial.println(gps.speed());

This is not the solution to everybody. Apparently the EM-406 needs not to be inverted. Mine and lots of others with this module have them work fine.
