The first major component for this project is a 5V serial GPS module, such as the BN-180 pictured here, which includes a choice of cables with either pins or sockets. This project uses the sockets.

The other major component is an Arduino Pro Mini 5V/16Mhz board. The "Pro Mini" is the important part (no onboard USB!!), and 5V is the version needed (rather than 3.3V). The one pictured here came with pin headers not already attached. These will need to be soldered in place (next steps), unless you can find a board with them already in place.

An alternative way to do this is to solder in only the 6-pin serial header, not the side pins, and then solder the GPS and 6p6c connections directly to the holes on the board. This would give a slimmer end product, but here we're going for the all-pins route!
