// FUTURE: Rewrite this to use TinyGPS's integer system instead?

* Initialises the connection to the GPS device.
SoftwareSerial gps_begin();
* Fetches new data from the GPS module.
* May take a moment, as the GPS device needs time to acquire a satellite fix.
GPSLocation gps_fetch();
* Ends the connection to the GPS device and puts it to sleep in order to save
* power.
* Note that the GPS device is connected directly to the power management
* system and so doesn't get turned off after each measurement, as it takes
* ~30s to reacquire a lock when it first starts up - hence why we put it to
* sleep instead.
* TODO: Connect the gps module to the timed power rail instead, as its; got an onboard battery.
