GPRS+GPS Quad-band Module Shield for Arduino, SIM908 US$133.00

GPRS+GPS Quad-band Module Shield for Arduino, SIM908

The GPRS+GPS Quad-band Module Shield for Arduino includes the SimCom SIM908 module which uses both GPRS and GPS technologies. This allows it to be used for real-time tracking applications.

The idea is simple: Read the GPS coordinates (longitude and latitude) and send them via HTTP to a web server. Then use a browser to load the PHP web page which uses Google Maps to show the location in real time.

Note that antennas are not included. The SIM908 module has two U.FL connectors one for GPS and one for GPRS.

This shield can be thought of as the middle of three levels of functionality. If you need only GPRS communication, you can get the GPRS-Shield. If you want a complete 3G+GPS solution, you can get the 3G+GPS-Shield.
