Satellite UTC Clock Powered by Arduino and Adafruit GPS

It works!  I recently blogged about getting the Ultimate GPS Breakout up and running while doing some validation of my iOS app, and I was delighted when a four digit display module I ordered arrived in the mail this past week.

After a bit of soldering and tinkering with the example code, I was able to get the UTC time reported by the GPS Breakout to display on the LED display module (including blinking the colon on alternating seconds.)

Complete details on how to wire it up are included in the source code, which is available on GitHub.
