Hi

Has anyone had success interfacing a GPS (USB, embedded etc) to the
LinuxStamp.

Do you have any tips and which hardware did you use

Regards

Yes, it's very easy. For the software gpsd (http://catb.org/gpsd/)
works well, and it should be installable with just apt-get. Then you
can tie any NMEA output device to a serial port. I used an old RS-232
device once, but the newer 3.3V logic level devices should be able to
tie directly into the RX serial line without any conditioning. One
possible device is something like this:

thanks,

Or this one:

Since it looks like the other one isn't sold anymore.

thanks,
