No fix on GPS, reloaded


#1

Hello,

I am using the Fastrack Supreme with the GPS add on card and an active GPS antenna. After running the Query sample I see that there is no fix on the GPS even after several hours. When I connect to my PDA the same antenna at the same location (outdoor with clear view to the sky) I get a lock at 8 to 10 satellites and a position fix in a couple of minutes. Should I enable something first? Maybe turn on the power to the antenna?

Thanks

Hi toxadi,
Do you enable antenna?

AT+WHCNF=0,0
AT+WIOM=8,1,0
AT+WIOW=8,0

Hello trthaithong,

Yes, and those were the exact commands used. By the way, when running the QueryApp demo, do you have to run those commands? (I did anyway but no results).

Hi toxadi,
We just need to do these commands only one time, except downloading firmware.
