The SD GPS logger will take data from a GPS and log it into a file on an SD card every 5 seconds.

It is based on the Arduino with an SD card shield and an attached GPS.

Here is the source code: /* SD gps datalogger This will log locations to a file on an SD card. Known bugs: If the code writes to the SD card at the same time you power down, it can corrupt the file system on the SD card. Pins: SD MOSI - pin 11 SD CLK - pin 13 SD CS - pin 8 GPS serial out - pin 7 GPS serial in - pin 6 (not needed) SD Shield: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9802 GPS: http://www.byonics.com/tinytrak/gps.php (GPS2) Required Libraries: NewSoftSerial - http://arduiniana.org/libraries/newsoftserial/ TinyGPS - http://arduiniana.org/libraries/tinygps/ Copyright (C) 2011 Jay Sissom This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; version 2 of the License.
