  1. Nice specs but how much?

  2. Estimated Euro 180 incl the Arduino and the shield and German tax. You are outside Germany. Maybe there is no tax to charge. Nevertheless be surpriced on the further Arduino shields that will be listed in my blog soon. All shields are made by business friends or suppliers. The new shields will support the origin Arduino and the Arduino clones as well. Origin Arduino is on 5 Volt. All clones like the version of Microchip is running on 3 Volt.

  3. Hi, I’m very intersted in this kit!
    Is possible to use a datalogger shield with this module? Where I can order the Kit?
    Best regards
    Alessandro

  4. Hi Alessandro, an origin Arduino has 1 UART and 1 SPI. Both is in use with this shield. There is a new generation of shields in process with:

    – Support of 3 Volt and 5 Volt. All Arduino clones are on 3 Volt. 5 Volts shields will not run on 3 Volt
    – The UART is wired to GSM module. The SPI is wired to GPS module plus multiplexer on UART and SPI. We are able to make sandwiches or several fields together.
    – OBDII / CAN-Bus shield

    Example:
    Arduino (or Arduino clone) + GSM/GPS-Shield + OBDII-shield = your application.

    With some hardware skills you will be able to wire a standard shield with datalogger to the SPI multiplexer.
    Take care that shields can use the same pins and this can generate conficts.

    Regarding the order I will come back to you by email.
    Best regards

    as for buy?

  6. Yes, by my business friends and some retailers. I am the Field Application Engineer only. My job is consulting of bigger wireless projects. The new chipKit of Microchip plus the new GSM/GPS shield is a cheap and powerful playground for several of my wireless projects.

  7. rommel simbulan

    Pls email me the details on how to order it “Arduino Mega GSM GPRS GPS Shield”

  8. Oliver Acasamoso

    Sir how can we purchase the item and how many days will it be delivered..?

  9. Just send an email and tell the country where you are living. The GSM/GPS adapters are in stock in Germany. Sooner or later some other shops will offer it as well.

  10. Hi Rommel, already done. All the best by your first steps with the shield.

  11. Hello,
    does this shield complaint to the FCC regulatory ?
    Is it valid the certification from Telit (GSM module ) or it need to be certified ?
    Thanks

  12. Paco, if I am rigth then no Arduino shield has pass the FCC, because nobody will pay for Arduino XYZ + shield certofications.

  13. Hi Harald,
    This looks like a nice piece of opensource HW! I have a question though: does the GSM/GPRS shield have a connector for a battery (and charge circuitry) for backup, like for example the HWKitchen model (please see http://www.hwkitchen.com/products/gsm-gps-playground-shield-for-arduino)?

    Can you please send me details on pricing and specs?
    Thanks.
    Jorge
