Problem with GPS (GNS) on Fona 808

by jargj on Wed Jul 31, 2019 2:15 pm

Hi, I'm trying to use the Fona's GPS.

I have a SIM card installed and can successfully make phonecalls and, send SMS and post to an API.

But the GPS keeps returning no fix.
If I use my other card from dfrobot works fine, so the GPS antenna works.
But, using the FONAtest, constantly returns no fix and empty position.
I upload the file and then select options
    O - wait for various times (at least 10 seconds)
    L - and get the faulty result
Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
