Anadigi GPS-R02 DIY GPS Kit

I got this little "Anadigi GPS-R02 DIY" car gps kit from eBay seller anadigi-hk, and it was mailed direct from Hong Kong.

[Edit: Apparently, the eBay Store and user are no more.]

It came with the GPS Circuit board and a little plastic case for it, an MMCX antenna with magnetic base, and a matching USB cable. The mini-CD came with drivers and a few test and diagnostic programs.

It works great; by the time my computer comes out of hibernation, it already has a signal lock. Talk about bang for the buck!

The receiver is based on the NemeriX NJ1030A [Datasheet -], and includes WAAS/EGNOS support.

Markings on the box: (They look like the vitals for the GPS Antenna)

  • LNA Gain (Without Cable): 28dB
  • Noise Figure: <1.5dB

  • Connector: MMCX
  • USB to Serial Converter (onboard): PL-2303* (but the Prolific Windows driver doesn't like it, errors with Code 10: Cannot start", according to the Prolific website, that means it's likely a counterfeit PL-2303 chip. I'll have to dig out the CD that came with it again.)

Update: How to add GPS to your Eee PC @ - That's definitely one of the first things I'd do with an Eee.

i need a lead, USB to Anadigi gps antenna reciever, help !

hi, i bought this Anadigi, gps antenna reciever last year, on Ebay from kenny.gps. dealing with this guy was pretty damned good, and the unit runs my tsunamis nav system great, but he's no longer on Ebay.

Can someone identify the USB mini lead connector at the box, it just says USB.....It has five connectors in a staight line 5mm wide. the lead came loose and tore out its wires, can anyone match the wire colours back to the terminals, if i can see them i'll solder them back on !!?

thanks Dippy ..

If the mini-usb plug is broken you can contact the factory at:

Broken USB Cable + other info

Hi, I got one of these GPS-R02's and it's a good piece of kit, especially for the money. Found a website with a little info -, plus I think this guy still sells them on eBay. My problem, I broke the USB cable. Looks like a micro-A but I'm not 100% sure. Does anyone know?

do you need to be on line

do you need to be on line when you use it

Internet Access

No, it's a GPS, it records your location from GPS satellites. You will need some kind of software to use it, but it does not require Internet access.

my mac id's this GPS as a "prolific technology" 2303

They're still available, only the store name has changed

Hey man.. I was planning to

Hey man.. I was planning to buy anadigi-hk gps kit but he's not a seller anymore. Did you get his personal email ? I've been looking for that gps from ages and now that I was bout to get it, he went away.

Got any clues?

GPS Kit Seller

Weird, I wonder what happened to him. There is contact information on the Anadigi website, but I'm not positive that they were involved in the actual eBay auctions.

Keep me informed :)


will this device work with Linux?

GPS Linux Compatibility

Yes, it should, as long as your linux distribution has the proper driver module. It's a fairly standard Serial to USB converter driver. If memory serves, it has an FTDI chip. I don't have it with me, so I can't look.


Lost the cd...any way i can download the drivers or someone email it to me. thanks

GPS Drivers

It uses a fairly common serial to usb driver, I forget exactly which. See what Windows says it detected, and look up a driver for it :)

need driver

I ordered this on ebay and lost the cd.  Can someone provide a link to download the driver? Windows can't find a suitable driver itself.

great device

do this can work with PC, update datebase by myself?, or do it can work some gps tool, as easygps, connecting with other pc data source, thanks.

GPS Compatibility

I've tested it to work with DeLorme GPS software and with NetStumbler, so I don't see why it shouldn't work with any other program.

It gives its data over a serial to usb converter, so it shows up like a COM port.

I bought one car gps kit

I bought one car gps kit from eBay seller, but I need to connect in Serial Port in my laptop.

Do you know how to convert to connect to the serial port?.


Serial Output

There's a chip on the bottom of the little PCB, it handles the RS232->USB conversion. You'd have to find a datasheet for it, and find out which pins hold what RS232 signal.

Looks like a great device.

Looks like a great device. What are you planning on doing with it?


When I get my carputer put together, I'll be wiring this in as the GPS. For now... Wardriving :)
