GP-2106 GPS

What do I need to hookup this gps module?

I don't know how to convert to 1.8vdc, and the datasheet says I need two capacitors.

I don't know how to convert to 1.8vdc

You don't know how to convert what to 1.8V? An umbrella? A frog? Perhaps an old canoe that sank?

and the datasheet says I need two capacitors.

Well, I guess you are out of luck then.

Thanks very helpful!

What do I need to change on this schematic to achieve that voltage, if I'm going to use the +5v pin on an Arduino Uno?

Your question assumes that the LM317 is the right choice. I'm not sure that it is. It assumes an input of 28V or more. Do you have a 28+V supply?

If so, Google LM317 calculator, to find lots of sites that help you decide what sized resistors to use to get what voltage output.

If you don't have a 28+V supply, a diode drops a small amount of voltage. A couple of diodes connected (in the correct direction) to the 3.3V pin should give you 1.8V.
