The OzzMaker SARA-R5 LTE-M GPS + 10DOF is a feature-packed board, which includes the following components:

  • LTE-M cellular modem (Nano sim slot)
  • GPS (including assisted GPS)
  • Accelerometer
  • Gyroscope
  • Magnetometer (Compass)
  • Barometric/pressure sensor (altitude)
  • Temperature sensor
  • Qwiic port

It comes in the same form factor as a Raspberry Pi Zero, which makes it nice and compact when used with a Pi Zero. It will also work with all other versions of Raspberry Pi.

This board includes a SARA-R510M8S module from uBlox, this module can be used for LTE-M connectivity and includes an integrated GPS receiver. Using both these features together results in obtaining a GPS fix in seconds, using Assisted GPS.

Typically, a GPS module can take a few minutes to get Time To First Fix (TTFF), or even longer if you are in built-up areas. This is because the almanac needs to be downloaded from satellites before a GPS fix can be acquired and only a small portion of the Almanac is sent in each GPS update.

Assisted GPS speeds this up significantly by downloading ephemeris, almanac, accurate time and satellite status over the network, resulting in faster TTTF, in a few seconds. This is very similar how to GPS works on a smartphone.

The below video shows a comparison between assisted and normal GPS.

  • Assisted GPS takes 19 seconds to get a fix
  • Normal GPS takes 8min 22 seconds to get a fix


This board is also fitted with an inertial measurement unit, or IMU. An IMU measures and reports on velocity, orientation and gravitational forces, using a combination of an accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer.

We have also included a barometric sensor (BM388) which can be used to calculate altitude. A temperature sensor is also included.

GPS Receiver features

The SARA-R510M8 includes an integrated powerful M8 GNSS receiver, which is an advanced high quality GPS module.

  • 3 concurrent GNSS: Concurrent reception of up to 3 GNSS (GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, BeiDou)
  • Protocols: NMEA, UBX binary, RTCM
  • Update Rate: Single GNSS - up to 18Hz, Dual GNSS up to 10Hz
  • Connection for external antenna: a uFL connector for an external antenna.

An external GPS antenna is needed (not included).

Hologram SIM included

We also include a SIM, which makes for easy activation.

The Hologram SIM card is the perfect connectivity solution for global IoT applications. Their cellular network has coverage in over 196 countries and partnerships with 550+ carriers. Their offer flexible pricing with pay-as-you-go rates and monthly plans.


  • The LTE-M modem and the GPS module can both be accessed at the same time through the Pi serial interface using MUX protocol (GSM 07.10).
  • External GPS Antenna and Raspberry Pi not included
  • Some very basic soldering is required to solder on the female header
  • Check with your local service provider that they offer LTE-M coverage
