I have an Arduino Leonardo and a GPS module "NEO 6M"

Pinout:

PPS->free   
rxd->11   
txd->10  
gnd->gnd   
vcc->5v  

I'm running this code:

#include "SoftwareSerial.h"
SoftwareSerial gps(10,11);
void setup(){
  Serial.begin(9600);
  gps.begin(9600);
}

void loop(){
  while (gps.available())
    Serial.write(gps.read());
}

In serial monitor I'm getting random characters like this

Where am I going wrong?

I tried the same with an Arduino Mega but have the same result.

Solved: GPS module was broken. Now I use another GPS module, same model. Sorry for my English.

  • How did you ascertain that the module was broken? Did you try it with a different GPS module and it then worked? Could you edit and expand your answer a little, as it could be useful for someone else who has the same issue... – Greenonline Jan 19 '17 at 12:06
  • i used another GPS module and resolve all my problem :) sorry for late response – Francesco Valla Feb 1 '17 at 9:55
