I have a arduino one one paralax 644 GPS card have it connected as follows : yellow pin on input 2 of the arduino and their respective 5v and ground

the code is as follows
-
#include < SoftwareSerial.h >

SoftwareSerial GpsMod = SoftwareSerial (2.3 ) ;

void setup ()
{
GpsMod.begin ( 4800 ) ;
Serial.begin ( 9600 ) ;
}

void loop ()
{
Serial.print ( GpsMod.read ());
}
-

the serial data monitor throws me like this

  • Welcome to Parallax forums.

    I'm pretty sure the PMB-648 default baud rate is 9600. Don't know enough about Arduino to know what else may be wrong.
    Re-inventing the wheel is not a waste of time if, when you are done, you understand why it is round.

    Did you change the baud rate?

    Do you know about GPS sentences?

    Edit. I misspoke myself when I said the default baud rate was 9600. Sorry, 4800 is correct.

  • See if this file gets you started.
    Infernal Machine
  • Another possibility is go to arduino forum and search on Gps 648. .

    i tested with that code but the serial monitor goes blank
