Some time ago I decided to play a bit with a GPS module so I bought one, this one: http://www.tme.eu/en/details/gts... . The problem is I was too excited about my idea and didn't actually think it all through. Of course I checked the basic information in the datasheet and I decided it will be enough but after I got that module I realized I don't have any antenna for it.
The problem is that I'm not any electronic engineer and I actually have no idea whether my GPS module would work without an antenna. Of course the first thing I did was looking on the Internet for similar problems but I guess people buying these GPS modules are already smart while ordering them, not like me.
My question is - can I buy for example this antenna: http://www.tme.eu/en/details/rfe... and it will work? If yes, how should I put it on a PCB? I'm a software engineer so I really don't have much idea about analog circuits (although I enjoy studying it but it doesn't come easy to me). I'm pretty sure I need an antenna so please, if you have any definite suggestions, I will gladly listen to them!
Just please don't tell me it will be too hard and it's better to buy a new GPS module with antenna. I'm not impatient and I wanna learn so I'm looking forward to your opinions!
