Note: The 1040_0B is identical to the 1040_0, except that you have the option of whether you want to include the USB cable.
The Phidget GPS provides the longitude and latitude of the board's position in signed decimal degree format. The position accuracy (best case) is 2.5m CEP (Circular Error of Probability).
The 1040 also provides altitude, heading and velocity as well as the time and date. It will also let you know when it has a satellite fix.
The PhidgetGPS has a 3V rechargeable lithium battery to provide "hot starts" by remembering its previous positions. With a live battery, the 1040 can perform a signal re-acquisition in less than 1 second. The battery provides up to 1 month of operation before having to be recharged. Recharging an empty battery takes 24 hours.

You can protect your board from dust and debris by purchasing an enclosure. An enclosure will also prevent unintentional shorts caused by objects touching the pins on the bottom of the board or any terminal screws.
Use a USB cable to connect this Phidget to your computer. We have a number of different lengths available, although the maximum length of a USB cable is 5 meters due to limitations in the timing protocol. For longer distances, we recommend that you use a Single Board Computer to control the Phidget remotely.

The PhidgetGPS can work well with a Phidget Spatial, because data from the two boards can be combined to give you a clearer picture of how the object in question is moving around. For example, the GPS could provide coarse data on where an object is located, and the accelerometer could be used for finer detail in movement. Additionally, the compass data could be compared to the GPS heading for increased accuracy on the direction you are facing. Here are a list of Phidget Spatials:
