GPS Shield and the 2560 R3


#1

I have no problem getting the shield to work with the uno, but I cannot get it to work on the 2560 r3.

I’m using the sample code. I’ve tried changing the jumper settings, to no avail either.

Any help would be most appreciated!

Just answered this over here for the Leonardo http://www.dexterindustries.com/forum/?topic=gps-shield/#post-1841

Note on Arduino MEGA and Leonardo:

GPS uses the serial line to get data from the GPS sensor. You need to change the serial selection (the jumpers on the board) to 10, 11, or 12 for the MEGA. So you’ll need to physically move the black jumper first.

Then, change the corresponding #define SoftrxPin in the file dGPS.cpp to 10/11/12 as well.

I just put all our Arduino code up on Github, to try to make it easier to maintain and follow: https://github.com/DexterInd/DI_Arduino/
