This is my baby step in learning Arduino. I am playing around arduino because I saw its fun.
Well I am from a Web and Computer Programming background and have good knowledge of programming languages. However I never worked on Electronics before.
I have bought Arduino Uno and NEO6MV2 NEO-6M (http://www.amazon.in/KitsGuru-GY-NEO6MV2-GPS-NEO6MV2-antenna/dp/B00YAF57CC?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s01).
So my first step was to read software libraries. I read something called Software Serial using which we can convert existing digital pins to serial pins. And this is helpful when more that 1 device/module is going to get attached to serial. Correct me if I am wrong.
I am also referring to http://pighixxx.com/unov3pdf.pdf where Rx - 0 and tx - 1 are already present then why the heck people on internet are using SoftwareSerial with TinyGPSPlus?
Also one more thing, I am unable to connect the GPS module that I purchased with Arduino, pins fit very loosly on GPS module. Do I need to buy some sort of mounting jack for GPS ? As of now I only want to connect GPS to Arduino. I was so excited to see coordinates in console but now I am getting WTF kind of feeling
BTW I am connecting pins in following manner Arduino===GPS Module
Tx====Rx Rx====Tx Grnd=====Grnd 3.6V====VLCC
