Arduino Tutorial: Arduino GPS tutorial with MakerStudio GPS shield and Arduino Uno. Easy DIY project
In this video we learn how to build a simle GPS tracker using a shield made from makerstudio.cc.
The GPS module export its data in NMEA format. So we have to parse the NMEA data in order to see valuable information. Luckily, the TinyGPS++ library can help us parse the data without even get our hands dirty.

Full flight of the Arduino based high altitude balloon project! Check out more of my Arduino & Electronics videos here: http://youtube.com/c/ericwilliam Subscribe for new videos every Monday and Friday!
Flight video from our DIY High Altitude Balloon with Arduino data logger launched from Goderich Ontario Canada May 31 2014. The balloon started about 6ft diameter- it would end up well over 20 feet at max altitude. Notice the distinct lack of any blue sky when it gets over 50,000 feet. Pretty cool.
We were shooting for 80,000 feet but fell a bit short. Next time should be closer to “near space”. Toronto and London Air Traffic Control were AMAZING to [...]
Testing the Adafruit Ultimate GPS Breakout Board. Accuracy is really good. Gets a fix in seconds. Connecting to satellites takes a bit longer especially if indoors but overall it’s an incredible board.
This is a simple test of the breakout board with no extra antenna connected. Board is wired to Arduino Uno and a simple LCD. Pots are used for the LCD contrast and to change the display. source
I wish I had done more parts salvaging before buying parts on ebay. Most items you will need for your Arduino projects are most likely laying around your house somewhere 😉
