The 1040_0B PhidgetGPS provides the longitude and latitude of the board’s position in signed decimal degree format. The position accuracy (best case) is 2.5m CEP (Circular Error of Probability).
Note: The 1040_0B is identical to the 1040_0, except that you have the option of whether you want to include the USB cable.
The 1040 also provides altitude, heading and velocity as well as the time and date. It will also let you know when it has a satellite fix.
The PhidgetGPS has a 3V rechargeable lithium battery to provide “hot starts” by remembering its previous positions. With a live battery, the 1040 can perform a signal re-acquisition in less than 1 second. The battery provides up to 1 month of operation before having to be recharged. Recharging an empty battery takes 24 hours.
1040_0B PhidgetGPS comes packaged with:
- An external active GPS antenna
- A hardware mounting kit (4 nuts and bolts (M3), 4 plastic spacers)
