One really big one:  we've added solder jumpers on the bottom that let you use it with the Mega version of the Arduino.  You can use these to use a different set of communication lines if you need the original lines for your project.  

If this sounds confusing, we have added the schematic and board drawings:  http://dexterindustries.com/files/GPS_Shield_2.0.zip

Another one: the software and examples were updated for the latest Arduino 1.0.1.  We added a few examples and additional calculations that let you calculate distances to destinations and times easier: http://dexterindustries.com/files/dGPS.zip


both links point to the same zip file with .sch and .brd
the link to the examples is missing.

BUT it's still incompatible with the 3.3V specification of the GPS receiver!


How do you figure ursm?
