Software Setup

Note: This code/library has been written and tested on Arduino IDE version 1.8.5. Otherwise, make sure you are using the latest stable version of the Arduino IDE on your desktop.

If this is your first time using Arduino, please review our tutorial on installing the Arduino IDE. If you have not previously installed an Arduino library, please check out our installation guide.

SparkFun Micro OLED library

First, you'll need to download and install the Sparkfun Micro OLED library. You can install the library via the Arduino Library Manager by searching 'SparkFun Micro OLED Breakout'. Alternatively, you can either grab the library from the GitHub repository or use the button below:

SparkFun U-blox Arduino Library

You will also need to install the Ublox library for the GPS unit. The SparkFun U-blox Arduino library can be downloaded with the Arduino library manager by searching 'SparkFun ublox GPS' or you can grab the zip here from the GitHub repository:

From the hookup guides, I hope you have a good understanding with how we’re setting this project up. We want to read a GPS location and output our latitude and longitude to the Micro OLED screen so we can see where we’re at. Sounds simple enough. So let’s start with our Qwiic Micro OLED Screen.
