GPS logger project

Don't need another freakin' project, but just ordered the bits to make a Arduino based "GPS Shield" location logger.

Not certain if you can get it to log full satellite data, but at least the SiRF- based GPS modules compatible with this thing can receive RTK DGPS correction data.

Interesting. I got the USGlobalSat EM-406A receiver, for starters I was just going to put this thing together and make it work, but I'm guessing I'll be learning about the Real Time Kinematic stuff eventually.

For just tracking your bike paths, you don't need RTK. Actual logging of satellite data (instead of interpolated location) allows for post-processing against free base stations - which might be nice for bike routes.

RTK is preferable for navigation but requires access to an RTK beacon.
