Help needed for ESP8266, GPS neo6m and Firebase

  • Good day all,
    I'm trying to upload the GPS neo-6m data to the firebase realtime database through the ESP8266 wifi module. but, after I uploaded the code nothing happen to the firebase and I can't find the latitude and longitude in the firebase.
    can you please have a look at my code, please? I didn't receive any error messages when I uploaded the code.

    #include <TinyGPS++.h>
    #include <SoftwareSerial.h>
    #include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
    #include <FirebaseArduino.h>
    #include <ArduinoJson.h>
    #define FIREBASE_HOST 
    #define FIREBASE_AUTH 
    #define WIFI_SSID 
    #define WIFI_PASSWORD
    static const int RXPin =0, TXPin =2;
    static const uint32_t GPSBaud = 9600;
    TinyGPSPlus gps;
    // The serial connection to the GPS device
    SoftwareSerial ss(RXPin, TXPin);
    void setup() {
      // connect to wifi.
      while (WiFi.status() != WL_CONNECTED) {
      Serial.print("connected: ");
      Firebase.begin(FIREBASE_HOST, FIREBASE_AUTH);
    void loop() {
     while (ss.available() > 0){
        if (gps.location.isUpdated()){
          Serial.print("Latitude= ");
          Serial.print(, 6);
          Firebase.pushString("/lat", "sd");
          Serial.print(" Longitude= ");
         Serial.println(gps.location.lng(), 6);
         Firebase.pushString("/lng", "sd");

  • @Sara , are you able to see the Latitude and longitude on the Serial Monitor ? and are you getting any error or something?

  • @salmanfaris yes I can see the latitude and longitude on the serial monitor and when I used them on the google map I can see my house. Also, there are no error messages received.

  • @Sara try this code.

    #include <WiFi.h> // esp32 library
    #include <IOXhop_FirebaseESP32.h>  // firebase library
    #define FIREBASE_HOST ""// the project name address from firebase id
    #define FIREBASE_AUTH "Your Firebase secret key" // the secret key generated from firebase
    #define WIFI_SSID "Your SSID"  // input your home or public wifi name
    #define WIFI_PASSWORD "Your Passcode"   //password of wifi ssid
    String fireStatus = ""; // led status received from firebase
    void setup() {
      WiFi.begin(WIFI_SSID, WIFI_PASSWORD); //try to connect with wifi
      Serial.print("Connecting to ");
      while (WiFi.status() != WL_CONNECTED) {
      Serial.print("Connected to ");
      Serial.print("IP Address is : ");
      Serial.println(WiFi.localIP());      //print local IP address
      Firebase.begin(FIREBASE_HOST, FIREBASE_AUTH);   // connect to firebase
      Firebase.setString("Your feedname", "your value");     //send initial string of led status

  • @kowshik1729 I received this error message

    Arduino: 1.8.12 (Windows Store (Windows 10), Board: "Generic ESP8266 Module, 80 MHz, Flash, ck, 26 MHz, 40MHz, QIO, 512K (no SPIFFS), 2, v2 Lower Memory, Serial, None, Only Sketch, 115200"

    compilation terminated.

    This report would have more information with
    "Show verbose output during compilation"
    option enabled in File -> Preferences.

  • @Sara Go to this site. Download the zip file.

    Go to your sketch in Arduino IDE -> include .ZIP library -> browse and select your zip file. This will install your library.

    Then try compiling your code.

  • @kowshik1729 still I'm receiving error messages. I think because the esp is different from the esp that mentioned in the code.

  • Yeah, I knew that. Typically ESP8266 can compile most of the codes of ESP32. That's why I asked to compile it once. I will get back to you with one more option.

  • @Sara

    Please try the instructions here step by step and try it.

  • @kowshik1729 I already did the same steps previously with no result.

  • @Suhailjr But I think since it's not a plug and plug play system and it will laying on the PCB for the long term, it might be fine. for me, it's similar to the Intel Edison and the PICO-IMX7 System-on-Module

  • @salmanfaris at last they update their design. T
    What you think on the updated connector. I felt like its more fragile and high chance for corottion issue due to humidity for long term use.

  • @kowshik1729 I think that might not get since the platform is not opensource! but they provided everything you need to develop a system with that.
