Thanks a lot for your clarifications and suggestions about using the
Robostix... Do you have an idea of what kind of interface is exposed by
ADC on the Audiostix? Is there out-of-the-box support?

Regarding the GPS thingie, my main concern is on how to connect it
physically and provide power. Do I need an electronics expert to do it?
If I connect the Robostix to STUART, where do I connect the GPS
receiver? Are you using its USB evaluation board? Can you shed some
more light for me please?
