hey guys, I just have a quick question about connecting the adafruit ultimate gps to my Arduino mega. This is my first time using the mega (I've been using the Uno but having memory problems) so I am just wondering which pins to connect the RX and TX from the module to the board? Are there specific pins on the mega for these? or can I just plug them into any of the digital pins (31-52)?
Mega has 4 hardware serial ports, noted on the board.
They are access as Serial, Serial1, Serial2, and Serial3.
Use 1,2 or 3 and leave Serial free for USB access to the PC for programming and debugging.
If you want to use one of the Software Serial codes, be aware that many require using pins with PCINT capability, so not all Mega pins will work.
I will be using Software Serial. So I believe that is pins 10 and 11 on the mega correct?
