Tracking the locations of people, objects or large assets like vehicles can often be fun, especially if you are doing it just as a personal interest. There are also times, however, in which tracking locations can be necessary, or even vital to the success of an operation. This is why the UART GPS Module, NEO-7M-C is such a valuable little GPS Module, as it offers a whole host of tracking features and complex onboard components that work beautifully together to produce a high-quality tracking and GPS Communications module.

The module comes fully equipped with all of the necessary components, with a high-gain onboard NEO-7M-C antenna ready to pull those elusive GPS signals right from the air. It can be used with a variety of different MCU’s like Arduino Boards or similar development platforms, with convenient horizontally-placed pins so the module can be kept out of the way of other components. These features all work together to create a module that is not only easy to integrate and utilise in projects, but also very versatile with the ability to be used in a wide range of different applications.

And if that wasn’t enough, this module even features an additional backup battery to keep track of the ephemeral data even when powering down. This ensures that your location tracking data will never be compromised by low battery power, while also keeping a few background processes running to enable 1 second hot-starts.

When it comes to producing unique electronics components and modules, there are very few brands that can provide the quality that Waveshare can. Based in the Futian District in Shenzhen, China, Waveshare are experts in developing electronics to a high standard of quality, which have been thoroughly tested to work seamlessly with corresponding development platforms and systems – such as the E-Ink HATs for Raspberry Pi’s.

What we love most about Waveshare is how they are dedicated to providing quality products, and have moved away from the typical “Made in China” stigma – cheap products with cheap parts and components. Instead, Waveshare understand the value of supplying quality products and building sustainable relationships with international resellers and distributors. They know that consistent quality will result in consistent business, and as such they always ensure strict quality control for each and every product that comes out of the manufacturing plant.

We are always excited to peruse through their vast catalogue of exciting new products to find unique modules, components or even entire development boards that are designed with quality in mind. Because we know that every cent that we spend with Waveshare will be well-spent, with each product that order adding real value to our own catalogue of products.
