GPS distance measurement between two coordinates using Arduino

I knew the dimension of the LCD (Nokia 5110) as 43mm x 43mm but it looked smaller than I thought.  That’s good because I want to put it on top of the GPS (Holux M-1000). In my previous post, I

JeonLab mini ATtiny programmer using Arduino ISP

For relatively small (less number of pins than ATmega328) project, ATtiny series, ATtiny45 or Attiny85 are good choice in terms of its physical size (8-DIP or 8-SOIC)  and low power consumption. There are many ways to program it. One of
