The ADS-GM2 board is based on the new GlobalTop Gms-hpr GPS receiver. It features low power consumption (20 mA tracking, 25 mA acquisition) and comes pre-loaded with high-altitude capable firmware for reliable operation above 60,000'.
The carrier board includes a voltage regulator for operation up to 12 volts, and both RS-232 and TTL compatible inputs and outputs are available at the 6-pin 1mm pitch wafer connector.
A female DB9 connector (included) can be added to the left edge of the board and matches the pinout used by our ADS-GM1 receiver, allowing the module to be directly connected to most of our trackers.
Default baud rate is 4800 baud. Some earlier units were set to 9600 baud.
