GPS module


Any Plug & Sense! node can incorporate a GPS receiver in order to implement real-time asset tracking applications. The user can also take advantage of this accessory to geolocate data on a map. An external, waterproof antenna is provided; its long cable enables better installation for maximum satellite visibility.
Note: Since December 2023, the GPS module is no longer available for purchase. Please contact Libelium sales department for more information.
