Hi, 1st post :D
I am using an Arduino Uno R3.
Attempting to connect just the 5v and GND cable from my EM406a GPS module to the 5V and Ground on Arduino...
Shorts out every time.
I thought about trying a different USB cable or USB port( tried port but not cable swap)
I used it in the dev lab at uni the other day when i soldered some wires to the standard EM406a tiny cable and i connected it there and it worked fine from what i remember but now i have it home it just constantly shorts :/
Any help and ideas are appreciated, thank you in advance.
I put it together this morning, it all came on fine..
then i disconnected it to take the gps closer to outside reconnect it and it shorts again ...
