RCT GPS now tested with BN-220 GPS

I got a lot of question during this winter about RCT-GPS with BN-220. Apparently people had some issues with it. So I got myself a few of those little rascals.

RCT-GPS works great with BN-220

No issues with the sensor. Only thing to mention is that first GPS fix took a VERY long time. One of my units took good 45 minutes! So take your time when using it for the few first times.

And it really is small!

You really don’t get smaller than that with Arduino!

Some notes

  • Weight with 45 cm cable is 14 grams
  • Weight without cable 8.3 grams
  • BN-220 takes a good time to get GPS fix
  • All the RCT-GPS speed optimizations work with BN-220 (It’s a NEO-M8N)

Enjoy!
