It has the same features as the mbed LPC1768 platform. Additionally you get cellular internet connection, global positioning with GPS, a Ethernet Connectors and CAN terminal on board. The USB is used to interface with the cellular modem. With the Arduino style connectors you can extend the platform with various shields or displays

A simple starter project would be to make a GPS data logger.

Add an SD card socket to the SPI bus (pins 10-13) (sparkfun.com sell sockets mounted onto a board if you need one), import the SDFileSystem library and you have everything you need.

There are lots of things you could do without adding anything extra but that is a total of 6 wires. Plus a capacitor between power and ground on the SD socket if the wires are long and you're seeing file corruption problems.

You could then add the ability to report the location over the cell modem (that would require a sim card / data plan).

i want the steps to mount sd card to the ublox c027?? Can anyone help please!!!!!!
