This one will answer your question..

Your shield:

  • UART Selection Switch: If the UART is selected, the GPS module will be connected to Arduino digital pins 0 and 1. If DLINE is selected, the GPS will be connected to digital pins 2 and 3 (default) or potentially any other digital pin. DLINE must be selected in order to upload code.

Use pins 2,3 for softwareserial
