EM7565 - GNSS errors

Hi,

Modem details:

Manufacturer: Sierra Wireless, Incorporated
Model: EM7565
Revision: SWI9X50C_01.09.04.00 6d3218 jenkins 2019/02/26 20:33:22

GPS NMEA details set:
AT!GPSNMEASENTENCE=C9FDF

Which means:

  • Enable all GP* sentences
  • Enable all GL* sentences
  • Enable all GN* sentences
  • Enable all GA* sentences

Errors seen:

  • Speed is always 0.0, no matter if there is movement or not. Applies to all RMC and VTG sentences.
  • Multiple GNGSA sentences are being produced. There are too many, and the final one contains an invalid field just before the CRC
  • Enabling GPDTM does not produce this sentence at all
  • Missing support for ZDA sentences (Time)

Here is output from the device:

Hi,
1st error: I cannot check your speed error because my condition doesn’t allow to test speed.
2nd & 3rd errors: I’ve not seen any errors as yours
4th error: The document doesn’t state that ZDA sentences are supported. Maybe this is a future improvement

@Vianney
Thanks for sharing.

Could you please add your current NMEA config?
AT!GPSNMEASENTENCE?

Which version are you running?

Issue 1 is the most severe one (Speed is always 0.0)

The other 3 are low prio
After rebooting the module multiple times, I’m now seeing GPDTM

Thanks!

@koenvandeputte
I use the same setting as yours.
Here is my setting:

OK

Some more details on the issue regarding speed:

When only GPS sentences are enabled, speed is fine.
When the sentences for other constellations are enable, speed is always 0.0

Smells like a bug …
