Trying to utilize windows Geolocation services with this chip and the drivers that came on the device results in inconsistent operation and I’m trying to figure out how to diagnose the problems. Its difficult to know if the device is even being initialized during the periods where I’m having the problems since location services is just one giant black hole as far as the developer is concerned.
Are there any log files and/or diagnostics that can be turned on/examined that might reveal the state of the GPS tracking or any way that I can interrogate the chip itself using the “AT” commands to ensure the driver is setting it up correctly? Windows tells me that it initializes properly but when I’m having problems I get a state of “no data” instead of actual error conditions (that indication supposedly means that it is still waiting for data from enough satellites for a meaningful calculation). Any help would be appreciated such as: 1) List of prerequisites for this all to work properly, 2) Where to find any meaningful logs/registry info, state, diagnostics, etc, and/or 3) Point to any articles discussing how to work with this chip in a Win10 .NET environment., and/or 4) Places to find information on what issues have been resolved in which versions of firmware/drivers so I know if perhaps one or more need to be upgraded.
