ATOM GPS is a GPS positioning module which is part of the M5 atomic series. The navigation chip is m8030-kt, which has built-in flash and a coin cell battery, which can save the users configuration. It adopts NMEA-0183 protocol output, supports GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BDS, SBAS and QZSS satellite systems, has 72 search channels, an adjustable refresh rate, and can be widely used in vehicle monitoring such as bus stop reporting, vehicle navigation, ship navigation, track tracking and other applications. In addition, a self elastic TF(MicroSD) card slot is built in. It is possible to read and write GPS and other file data, for example, you could export GPS data in a specific format to view the motion tracking in the map software, or read and write files as a common card reader.

LEARN AND DOCUMENTS
Nice compact GPS kit. But the UIFlow Base GPS functions don't work with that kit. I didn't try the SD card functions as I used the ATOM GPS KIT for an IoT geofence project that didn't make use of a SD card.
To access the GPS info with UIFlow, you need to add the GPS unit in UIFlow with SDA/TX and SCL/RX connected to the ports 21 and 22 respectively. Unfortunately, the GPS unit UIFlow functions don't provide out of the box as many GPS info as the GPS base UIFlow functions are supposed to.
ATOM GPS Development Kit (M8030-KT)
quick and painless delivery as usual. Works as advertised. After initial lock outside it also works inside the house. Thank you.
It's cheap and very compact, but its performance is good.
Works well outdoors
