BreakoutModule Navigation Sensor Module GPS

Internal Reference: SS-012


Confused about your GPS not working well in urban or outsides under only one or a few satellite modules? Then you should not miss our new Grove-GPS (Air530). It’s a high-performance, highly integrated multi-mode satellite positioning and navigation module to use with Arduino. It supports GPS / Beidou / Glonass / Galileo / QZSS / SBAS, which makes it suitable for GNSS positioning applications such as car navigation, smart wear, and drone. Meanwhile, this module is capable of receiving more than 6 satellites at the same time and is able to work excellently even if there's a very bad signal.

Note: The test above is taken under bi-modules of GPS&Beidou.




  • The input power supply voltage of the Grove power supply interface, should not exceed 5.6V, otherwise, it may damage the device.
  • The voltage of the selected button battery should not exceed 3V, or it will probably damage the device.
