Do you reckon this eBay USB GPS Antenna (https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F143312562035) will work with a Raspberry Pi and if so will I be to use this tutorial to utilise it: https://youtu.be/A1zmhxcUOxw

All answers appreciated! Eddie

  • Your eBay GPS ad has no model number or spec. I would rather buy from AliExpress or Amazon, with spec and instructions. Your tutorial as a bit too brief. You can find more more references and tutorials from Google or this thread: raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/98840/…

Just had a look on AliExpress and found this: https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/eICTLDO

On one of the images in the item description it claims it supports Raspberry Pi! It is a bit more expensive at £4 instead of £3, but with the AliExpress New Customer Voucher it goes down to £1.16!

Thanks everyone, I will buy this one!


  • Just remember to take care if you buy something for more than £15 from a non-EU country. You might be hit by customs duty/import VAT in the UK.

  • It’s £1.65! Not £15! But I understand! I think it should be ok Aug 7, 2019 at 17:05
  • Your purchase will be fine. It was just a caution for future purchases.

  • Great! I’ll make sure I’ll take care of that in the future! Aug 7, 2019 at 17:09

It should work. GPS units have a pretty basic but standard interface.

I have no idea if the linked tutorial is any good as I couldn't be bothered to sit and watch it.

  • It’s fine that you didn’t watch the video! I’ll just buy the thing and see if it works! I mean what’s there to lose? £3! Aug 7, 2019 at 15:05
  • That would be my attitude as well. I know £3 is a lot for some people but if you can afford it then I'd take the small risk of it not working.
