NEO-6M GPS module has high sensitivity, low power consumption and miniaturization. Its high tracking sensitivity greatly enlarges its coverage. Where the ordinary GPS receiving module can not locate, such as narrow urban sky, dense jungle environment , NEO-6M can be high-precision positioning. The high sensitivity, small static drift, low power consumption and compact size of the module are ideal for applications such as PDAs, vehicle monitoring, mobile phones, camcorders and other mobile positioning systems for automotive and handheld applications.
