GPS Module for Tessel 2


I’m brand new to IoT tech, and for my first project I’d like to build a GPS tracker. For this I’d like to use the Johnny-Five Inventors Kit because I’m most familiar with JavaScript, and the Tessel GPS (Seeed Studio) module. Unfortunately this product is not available anymore.

My question is, will most other GPS modules work with the Tessel 2? If so, what do you recomment?


Hey Richard,

Having a look at the board I think the Tessel connector is a composite of a few different connectors and that GPS is just a UART GPS like this Raspberry Pi One . You should be able to use this guide to help you get started.
