I need to create a project that has GPRS/GSM and GPS, but there are no products with both functionalities. I found some Add-Ons that may work but I'm not sure if there is any way to stack both. I know that is impossible to put one on top of each other because there aren't compatible. The products are:

There is any way to stack this Add-Ons in Raspberry Pi 3 Model B?

With these particular add-ons, no, because they both expect exclusive access to the serial port. You can get GPIO stacking headers for adding multiple HATs, but you always have to check if there's pin contention. pinout.xyz is a good resource.

Boards based on other chipsets such as the SIM908 combine GSM/GPRS and GPS on one module.
