20 Channel EM-406A SiRF III Receiver with Antenna

The EM-406A GPS module from USGlobalSat based on the spectacular SiRF StarIII chipset. This complete module is built upon the same technology as the ET-301, but includes on-board voltage regulation, LED status indicator, battery backed RAM, and a built-in patch antenna! 6-pin interface cable included.

The EM406A module makes a great gift for that special someone who's interested in playing with GPS. For more gift ideas check out the SparkFun Gift Guide!

Note: The cables we have been getting with these have a gray wire on alternating sides of the connector. Check the datasheet for correct pinout. Don't pay attention to which wire is gray, reference the pinout of the actual module.
