Post subject:  Question about the UART

I have a couple of questions about how the UART works. If I have a GPS connected to the Cortex through UART and the GPS is outputting coordinates, what happens if there is a delay in between reading the GPS? So, if the GPS is outputting coordinates and the Cortex pauses, does the Cortex skip reading the characters that were sent in between the pause or does the GPS only send new characters after one has been read?
