I think I do have some problem and just wondering whether I can get some help from you guys.
First of all, I’m try to build up a GPS tracking system. Therefore, I brought an Arduino Mega 2560 master kit from somewhere!! and GPS receiver EM406 as well as GPS shield.
Since I have connected the GPS shield on the top of the Mega 2560 board and connect the GPS receiver to the GPS shield through the EM406 input which is available on the GPS shield. The good news is that the GPS receiver it comes with an LED fit just right to the corner and that can be used to indicate about the GPS signal. On my project I’ve got that LED Flashing which mean it does receive signal and fixed position. However, my problem is that I’m unable to received any coordination as I’m using my computer USB as serial monitor. The Arduino codes that I’m using it’s actually available on the internet linked bellow:
I have only changed these:
#define RXPIN 2 to #define RXPIN 0
#define TXPIN 3 to #define TXPIN 1
According to the Arduino mega 2560 data-sheet.
Here are some photos represent the hardware. Please find the enclosed document.
Eventually, I was trying to minimise it as far as I could … Please guys if anyone has a suitable codes or further comment in regard to the hardware connection then please advice.
