Arduino GPS shield is a GPS module breadout board designed for Global Positioning System receiver with SD interface. It is easy to use for recording the position data into SD card.
- With SD interface
- Active antenna design with high receive sensitivity, compatible normal antenna
- Extremely fast time to first fix at low signal level
- UART interface
- Operation temperature: -40℃ ~ +85℃

I got it quickly and working as promised.
Seriously flawed. Not broken, but didn't perform as expected.

There are two main issues here. The first is that after trying to get the gps to work for a couple of days in multiple locations, even after confirming good gps signal with other devices, I only managed to get a gps lock once. Once! What good is a gps that has such trouble locking onto a signal?
The second issue is that the logic leveling circuit for the SD card is based on voltage dividers. That is seriously lacking compared to what it really needs, a logic leveling chip. I was only able to write but not able to read SD cards and only on a 5v signal.
this severly limited my options. I had to get a different GPS module.
