… the extension module for GSM / GPRS and GPS

Arduino Shield GSM GPS 300x243 Arduino with GSM GPRS GPS Shield

Arduino Shied with GSM and GPS module

The open-source physical computing platform Arduino,  based on easily applicable hardware and software for the development of prototypes, consists of a micro controller (ATmega328) with numerous digital as well as analogue inputs and outputs and interfaces…  Arduino boards can be expanded to valuable features by plugging the so-called ”Shields”. With the GSM/GPRS/GPS-Shield the  Arduino board is enabled to use GSM (mobile communication) and GPS functionality (navigation), for example

The GSM GPRS GPS-Shield is plugged as ”primary” shield on top of the Arduino board, ensuring that the antenna of the integrated GPS receiver has “free view”. The communication between the two boards is achieved via the serial interface (GSM / GPRS) and SPI (GPS). Any standard screw mount GSM antenna types (stubby, magnetic mount, adhesive mount) with SMA connectors can be used. Demo programs, drivers and libraries for operating the  GSM / GPRS / GPS-Shield are of course included.

[...] The evaluation kits for this application are inexpensive. The minimum are two ready to use 2400 MHz radio modules with ready to use radio link protocol and firmware. Within minutes you will get a working sample. Just plug the coin cell batteries to the 2400 MHz radio modules and code one module in mode active RFID and the other in mode “toggling output pin” and wire a LED. As long the 2400 MHz radio module coded as active RFID will be in the near of the receiving radio module the LED will flash. The next step will be to code the receiving 2400 MHz radio module as a transparent radio to UART link. The received unique ID of the active RFID beacon will be forwarded to the UART. The UART can be wired by USB or RS232 converter to your PC. If you use some kind of terminal software (e.g. Hyperterm on Windows), then you will see the unique ID of the active RFID tag on the screen. The further step is to replace the PC to Smart Phone, GSM/GPS terminal or the Arduino based evaluation kit listed here. http://www.gsm-modem.de/M2M/m2m-apps/gsm-gprs-gps-shield-for-arduino-board-duemilanove-atmega328/ [...]

Sorry to trouble again, but I would like to know how many pins are free Arduino 2009, after connecting the shield gps / gprs in order to connect a memory card to be used as a logger?
Thanks, see you soon

Please have a look here:
http://www.gsm-modem.de/M2M/m2m-componets/iot-avl-smart-home-aal-m2m-and-m2m2p-on-arduino/
I published a table to compare yesterday. The Arduino clone on PIC32MX320F128L has: 2-UART, 2-SPI, 2-I2C.

One UART is used for GSM module. The SPI is used for GPS (by SPI to UART converter. The smallest Arduinos has only one UART and one SPI. There is no interface left.
On PIC32MX320F128L there is one USB for Android accesory. This you can use for USB memory stick. You can run on PIC32MX320F128L the FreeRTOS and can select from this SW libraries: Android Accessory, IEEE 802.15.4 (ZigBee, MiWi, MiWi P2P), Bluetooth Stack, Ethernet (TCP-IP, Internet), USB – device & host, G.711 Speech Encoding/Decoding, ADPCM and Speex (Audio), Memory Disk Drive File System (FAT 16 and FAT32) to share and transfr data with PCs, Touch Sense (mTouch), Data EEPROM Emulation, Encryption/Decryption, nanoWatt XLP Battery Life Estimator (PIC24F), Graphics (QVGA), Helix MP3 Decoder, Certified Class B Safety, Smart card ISO-7816 and Google PowerMeter.

could anyone tell me if i’ll be able to use the shields with arduino mini pro 5v 16mhz and also could you tell me if i’ll be able to buy these in india…
thankyou

This shield is supporting 5 Volt and 3 Volt Arduinos and all clones. Most Arduino clones are on 3 Volt. So be careful by selecting shields.

my GSM GPRS GPS Shield that i bought it is different from the picture in up of the page why and it has the same software ?

The new version of the shield is able to suppot 5 Volt Arduino and 3 Volt Arduino clones. The new shield is using later GSM modules and GPS modules as well.
My skills are in hardware. With software I have no experience.

the new version has no data sheet so i dont know where switch 1 and switch 2 or led 1 and led 2 and it is not operate so what can i do to operate it because my Conflict very soon

Hello,
I have this shield but when I try to initiate the communication, the arduino print AT+CREG?.
The value return is 2 and after it’s always 0
Do you know why ?
Thank’s

Ammeenoz, you will get an email from me.

AT+CREG tells you the status of the registration. What type of GSM module is mounted on yor shield?
