"Connecting the Arduino TX line to the RX line of the GPS module is complicated by the fact that the GPS runs at 3.3V and the Arduino runs at 5V. This voltage divider brings those Arduino signals down to ~3.3V.
*Arduino TX -> 10K resistor -> Arduino GND
*Arduino TX -> 4.7K resistor -> GPS RX"
Hi, sorry, if I can correct you, you have not correctly indicated the connection.
To have a correct voltage divider, you have to connect:
*Arduino TX -> 4.7K resistor -> GPS RX
*GPS RX -> 10K resistor -> Arduino/GPS GND
