PA1010D Location Issue

by DDDDDSSSSS on Thu Apr 22, 2021 11:30 am

My PA1010D is not giving the proper longitude and latitude readout. It is always wrong I have tried many locations that are miles apart. Is there any way to fix this? I am using the Adafruit Parsing code.

Are you using just the parsing code? Or are you running one of the examples from the library?

I am using the library examples I first ran the echo test and now the parsing code. I am getting locked onto 12-13 satellites at a given time but still, the longitude and latitude are very off.

Please link to the specific sketch you are running. There are several related to parsing.

Thanks. And you've wired per the connection diagram here?

Does the other information seem OK? It's just lat/lon that are off?

I have wired per the diagram. For my project, the only information that I am using is the Latitude and Longitude which are not right. I do know that the date and time are off but I did not check anything else.

Look at the other information as well. That way you can verify you have a fix and the quality of the fix.
