Once you've assembed the hardware you'll need to load an Arduino sketch for the project. If you're new to Arduino it will help to first familiarize yourself with using it by reading:
Make sure you have the latest version of the Arduino IDE installed (version 1.6.5 as of the time of this guide writing).
Next you'll need to load a few libraries depending on which version of the project you're building. Remember you can use the library manager to search for and install these libraries right from the Arduino IDE.
For the GPS shield version load these libraries:
For the FONA808 shield version load these libraries:
If you already have any of the libraries above installed, make sure to update them to their latest versions. In particular the FONA library needs to be at version 1.2.0 or higher or else it won't work to grab GPS data.
Now download the code this project from its home on GitHub.
See the following pages for the GPS shield and the FONA versions of the code.
- Track_Your_Treats - This is the version of the project that uses the GPS shield to log location data to a SD card.
- Track_Your_Treats_FONA808 - This is the version of the project that uses the FONA808 shield to log location data to Adafruit IO.
