GSM GPS shield for Arduino

Posted on Tuesday, September 4th, 2012 in Arduino, open source, RF, wireless by the machinegeek

Boris Landoni draws our attention to the GSM GPS shield for Arduino designed by Open Electronics. “The shield is designed and based on the module GSM/GPRS SIM900 or the GSM/GPRS & GPS module SIM908, to make calls, voice and data connections via GPRS. This new version has several new hardware features, that allow maximum customization and provide many configurations. With a microphone and a headset with a 3.5 mm jack (just the standard headphones for computers), you can make a voice call from Arduino!”

For more details and library download links see the Open Electronics website. They are also making a kit version available from the Open Electronics store. (Note that the kit does NOT include the GSM/GPRS or GSM/GPRS & GPS Breakboard included in the photo above, which they sell separately.)
