I'm a newbie on what regards to electronic projects, but I will like to set up a GPS tracker to transmit coordinates over a GPRS internet connection (3G or so).

I found some Add-Ons that may work but I'm not sure if it is possible to add both. The products are:

Will these products work simultaneously with my Raspberry Pi 3 Model B?

The GPS module you've linked has a strange connector on the top. It's very unlikely that you can put the GSM/GPRS module on it, so I will say:

NO, they won't work together.

I would go with this GPS and a USB modem. I have tested this one with a raspberry : Huawei E3372, but it seems at little bit overpriced.

  • Thanks for the quick response! And if I buy the GSM/GPRS module and buy a component like this link to get the GPS coordinates? It is possible? Nov 13, 2017 at 14:46
  • Most USB GPS are simply serial GPS behind a serial-to-usb bridge, so they generally work fine under Linux. I really like and use the raspberry pi platform, but whenever I can choose a peripheral that will work on a standard PC, I buy this one over the raspberry pi specific. So I can only recommend going the USB way.

  • Thank you! So I will buy the SIM800 Add-On (GSM/GPRS) and the BU-353-S4 (GPS) Nov 13, 2017 at 15:01
  • What about this product? link It has both funcionalities that I need. It is compatible with the Raspberry Pi 3? Nov 13, 2017 at 16:19
