Arduino GPS with OLED Display

An attempt at scaling down the GPS logger I made, this one is using a mini GPS receiver from Sparkfun with coordinates displayed on a 0.96″ OLED from Adafruit. It’s still a work in progress just squishing together code from the TinyGPS++ library and using the Adafruit GFX...
