5 HZ GPS Module at Sparkfun

I was looking for something else when I spotted this:

Thought it was worth a heads up.

Dave,

Thanks for the heads up. Looks like a nice device. The software support is great too.

I like the feature that allows you to select the NMEA sentences and their individual rep rate. You could get just $GPGLL or GGA (altitude) at 38400 baud and expend minimum time on data exchange.

The only drawback I can see is that you have to configure it just before it's flown. Or, you have to worry about a 'keep alive' battery.

Gotta talk myself into parting with another hundred bucks.

Tom
