    Following up on the Family biking project thread (http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/showthread.php?p=571754) - I will probably settle on cheap GPS modules for each bike. Now how can I transmit the data from each GPS to the master unit?

    I essentially need wireless digital transmit, for start one way, relatively low speed (just the timestamp and location of each unit), and the range in up to hundreds of meters. And of course relatively easy to build :)

    What should I look for? Any pointers please?

    Ready to use modules with the required range, that use simple serial data. They are a bit more expensive than the low powered modules and you might pay a bit more too for the benefit of using simple serial data and not a complex protocol like the nRF modules.
