How do you interface a GPS module with PIC microcontroller?

How do you interface a GPS module with PIC microcontroller?

Steps to Interface GPS with PIC Microcontroller:- Connect the GPS module to the microcontroller using USART. Initialize the system USART in continuous receive mode, with 9600 baud rate and LCD with 4bit mode. Take two character arrays depending on the Length of Latitude and Longitude.

What is GPS module interfacing?

Global Positioning System (GPS) makes use of signals sent by satellites in space and ground stations on Earth to accurately determine its position on Earth. The NEO-6M GPS receiver module uses USART communication to communicate with microcontroller or PC terminal.

Is PIC16F877a a microcontroller?

PIC16F877a is a PIC Microcontroller. PIC16F877a can be write-erase as many times as possible because it uses FLASH memory technology. It has a total number of 40 pins and there are 33 pins for input and output. PIC16F877A is used in many pic microcontroller projects.

How do I interface a GPS module with Arduino?


  1. Connect TX pin of GPS Module to pin number 4 of Arduino Uno.
  2. Connect RX pin of GPS Module to pin number 3 of Arduino Uno.
  3. Connect Red wire (5V pin) of GPS module to 5V pin of Arduino Uno.
  4. Connect Black wire (GND pin) of GPS Module to GND pin of Arduino Uno.

How many bit microcontroller is PIC16F877A?

The PIC16F877A-I/P is a 8-bit CMOS Flash-based Microcontroller.

Can we connect GPS to Arduino?

To connect your GPS module to Arduino, use a +5V from the power side of the Arduino and any ground pin. Any two pins will work for the serial communication, but on this tutorial we will use 3 and 4: Connect Arduino pin 3 to the RX pin of the GPS Module. Connect Arduino pin 4 to the TX pin of the GPS Module.

How much voltage does the PIC16F877A can take *?

It can operate up to 20MHz frequency. The operating voltage is between 4.2 volts to 5.5 volts. If you provide it voltage more than 5.5 volts, it may get damaged permanently.
