    What is the gps data size?

    I want to collect gps data by 100ms intervals during 24 hours time. After that I want to transfer this data to SD card ,I have Adafruit Ultimate Gps Logger Shield and I will also buy an Arduino but now I want to determine the SD card size (how many mb or gb?) in order to hold this information and I think data will be in $GPRMC format and I eliminate other data formats by parsing.
    So I want to know for example,

    $GPRMC,194509.000,A,4042.6142,N,07400.4168,W,2.03, 221.11,160412,,,A*77 ,

    What is the size of this thing and approximately how many megabytes do I need to collect all 24 hours data like this one?

    Re: What is the gps data size?

    hi,
    If I understand your query correctly, I see 73 characters plus CR LF =75
    24hr * 3600sec *10smps *75chars = 64.8MBytes.
