I built a project using a Neo-6M  GPS Module with the Raspberry PI. Now there are several USB solutions, and apps that work with them, but I wanted to show how to use a $20 GPS module with a a serial UART, and Python code to decode the NMEA strings. Then you can write your own GPS interface, or combine the data with Google Maps.

Hardware Setup:

The first step is to connect the GPS module to the Raspberry PI. There are only 4 wires involved, so it’s a simple connection.

Writing Your First Shell Script with Raspberry Pi

In this tutorial we’ll be writing our first bash script for Raspberry Pi. We’ll create a directory to keep this and future scripts, write the actual script, and set it up as something that can be executed from the shell.

Scripts are an incredibly powerful tool to have in your toolbox. In essence, a script is just a sequence of commands that you could otherwise have entered into the shell. The power of scripts is that they can be used to make decisions, and execute certain commands based off that decision. Scripts can be scheduled to run at certain times, and can execute trigger other scripts.

In this tutorial we’re assuming you’re familiar with how to use the terminal to navigate the file system and create files and directories.
