I’m trying to get the EM7345 up and running in general but specifically the GPS on this system, but sofar with no luck. I’ve tried leaving posts on Lenovo but the service there is crap!
I’ve managed to deduce that the USB device is seen with the command ‘lsusb’ with the ID 1199:a001.
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 8087:8000 Intel Corp. Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub Bus 001 Device 004: ID 8087:07dc Intel Corp. Bus 001 Device 003: ID 138a:0017 Validity Sensors, Inc. Bus 001 Device 002: ID 1199:a001 Sierra Wireless, Inc. Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Next, I checked to see if the appropriate driver is installed on my system and could not find the ID in the list generated with the ‘sudo modinfo sierra’ and ‘sudo modinfo sierra-net’ commands.
I found this old post and downloaded the driver file but it seems to be the one I have already installed.

At the moment I’m not using a SIM card as I read that this model does not require one to use the GPS functionality which is my main interest at this moment.
Firstly, is it possible to get this card up and running on Linux and either how or where can I get the driver. Secondly, are my assumptions correct that I do not require a SIM card to receive the GPS signal?
