Run this example from the command line with:

node eg/gps.js
var five = require("johnny-five");
var board = new five.Board();

board.on("ready", function() {

  /*
   * This is the simplest initialization
   * We assume SW_SERIAL0 for the port
   */
  var gps = new five.GPS({
    pins: {
      rx: 11,
      tx: 10,
    }
  });

  // If latitude, longitude change log it
  gps.on("change", function() {
    console.log("position");
    console.log("  latitude   : ", this.latitude);
    console.log("  longitude  : ", this.longitude);
    console.log("  altitude   : ", this.altitude);
    console.log("--------------------------------------");
  });
  // If speed, course change log it
  gps.on("navigation", function() {
    console.log("navigation");
    console.log("  speed   : ", this.speed);
    console.log("  course  : ", this.course);
    console.log("--------------------------------------");
  });
});
