    In your video on GPS modules, I thought I heard that the SAM-M8Q could receive RTK correction data? I have a base F9P and want multiple rovers where +-1.5 m position accuracy would be enough. The SAM-M8Q + RTK correction would be an economical solution.

    How would I hookup and read data from the gps chip if I connected it to a rasberry pi 4?

      That being said... we have tried using these products with the Raspberry Pi; however, due to clock stretching issues they aren't really compatible using the I2C bus. I would recommend pursuing either the serial or SPI communication (I think those were options on these products... its hard to keep track of all the new GPS units). Otherwise, I recommend looking at our latest GPS pHAT that is compatible with the Raspberry Pi.
