GPS speed

Hey fellas,

Just wondering if the GPS module also records speed?

Cheers,
Brendan.

Yes, groundspeed. There's also a dedicated (separate) module with pitot tube for recording airspeed, should you want to go there.

Thanks fellas, it is ground speed I'm after anyway.

Will probably pick up a module soon.
