If anyone is interested, I was able to get my GPS to work with the Cerbuino after all. Instead of using USB to talk to my GPS module, I cut the usb part off the usb-to-serial cable and just connected the GPS directly to the Cerbuino using one of the UART RX pins (and of course, ground and +5v). I’m actually happier with this solution than with the USB approach.
Thanks again to all of you for your help!
Some pictures would be great.
Here’s a photo of it in action. It uses a Pharos GPS-500 GPS Module.
Cool - so I assume that the MS branded device is the Pharos. What’s the larger USB device?
Yes, the MS device is a Microsoft branded Pharon GPS module.
If you’re asking about the gray and blue thing, it’s a Brunton USB battery acting as my power supply. It’s made to charge cell phones, but it’s perfect for powering projects like these.
