Hello, I have an Arduino Uno and an adafruit GPS logger shield that I have stacked on top. Right now I'm following the tutorials on the adafruit website, trying to get their GPS parsing example to work.
soft serial connection tutorial: Soft Serial Connect | Adafruit Ultimate GPS Logger Shield | Adafruit Learning System
parsing data example sketch tutorial: Parsing Data | Adafruit Ultimate GPS Logger Shield | Adafruit Learning System
As suggested in the tutorial, I downloaded the adafruit GPS master library from github, then connected the board to the computer and set the switch to soft serial. I then opened up the parsing example sketch, changed the line SoftwareSerial mySerial(3, 2); to SoftwareSerial mySerial(8, 7);, and compiled/uploaded the sketch.
Then, I opened up the serial monitor, but I don't get the same output as in the tutorial (or even close). I get a bunch of weird symbols, like this:
Any idea what could be going on? I'm just getting started with the GPS logger and not sure what's wrong.
