Ultimate GPS no heartbeat...

by MachineShedFred on Sat Jan 26, 2013 8:26 pm

Hello there.

I recently ordered and received an Ultimate GPS breakout board, and it was working marvelously with my Raspberry Pi. That is, right until it wasn't. Now the LED never lights up when given input power, where it used to flash while attaining fix.

What is the procedure for an RMA? Everything on the web site alludes to posting here.

How long was the module working for you? Were you powering it with the 5v or 3.3v pin?

It worked for a few days. Roughly a week.

Powered from 3.3v
