NavSpark : A Small, Powerful, 32bit Arduino Compatible Development Board With Free GPS, GPS/GLONASS, or GPS/Beidou Receiver

The price ranges from $15 and up, not including shipping. What about that is free? The word "free" appears on the video but nowhere else on the page.

It's free and worth every penny.

Perhaps them meant libre rather than gratis?

I believe they meant to say you get a 32-bit Arduino-compatible board for $

19, and at "no extra charge" (eg. free, once you've bought the board) it ha s a GPS built into it to give you position and accurate time. Unlike any ot her Arduino-type board at that price that I'm aware of. The Arduino-compati ble part of the codebase is also free as in libre (open source) although th e GPS library is closed-source.

If anyone is interested in the GPS functions, I summarized the info spread out through the Indiegogo comments into an unofficial NavSpark FAQ here:

If you just want the CPU by itself for general use and don't care about GPS, they are now offering 21 boards for $220 with just the CPU, regulator etc, no GPS so that would be $10.50 per board.
