The overall project was completed and delivered on the 13th of December. We had a ton of problems getting the board to work with our printed circuit board that came in. Initially we found a lot of interference between traces on the PCB that causes the LCD and GPS to not work as expected. After a little cleanup, we were able to assemble each unit for tests. All of the features worked, except the GPS... it was never able to get a fix while in the case. The best reason for this was most likely the RF interference between the tightly packed components in the case. However, wireless transmission worked great along with all the LCD screens and push-button interface. Some images and a link to the final presentation are available below.
