Cellular + GPS tracking, all in one, for your Arduino? Oh yes! Introducing Adafruit FONA 808 GSM + GPS Shield, an all-in-one cellular phone module with that lets you add location-tracking, voice, text, SMS and data to your project, in Arduino shield format for easy use.
Please note: The T-Mobile GSM network which is shutting down in the USA over the course of 2020 and beyond, so please be aware these are not for long term usage in the USA! Please check out the FONA 3G for next-generation usage.
If you don't need the shield format, we also have this is a petite breakout here.
If you just want a plain FONA, click here.
This shield fits right over your Arduino or compatible. At the heart is a powerful GSM cellular module (we use the latest SIM808) with integrated GPS. This module can do just about everything
Here's the GPS specifications:
Sounds delicious, right? So we plated this fine module onto a shield with all the extras you need to make your next project shine
On its own, this shield can't do anything. It requires a microcontroller like an Arduino to drive it! You will also need some required accessories to make FONA work. These are not included!
Each order comes with one tested and assembled FONA shield and a stick of 0.1" male header. Required Arduino, SIM card, battery, antenna and other accessories are not included! Some light soldering is required to put the headers onto the shield. You can also grab some stacking headers if you would like to stack a shield on top
There's also some recommended accessories. They are not required but chances are you'll want them!
