GPS Satellites Visible But No Fix

Post by Nishanthz » Wed Nov 21, 2018 11:58 am

Hi,
I am using Quectel L86 GPS Module, I am facing following problems:-
1. GPS Satellite Fix takes more time or sometimes not at all fixing. (Even using external chip Antenna problem exists)
2. Which of these following satellites, I need to enable:- (All I need to enable or according to my location I need to turn ON/OFF)
* GALILEO_FULL_Enable
* GALILEO_Enable
* GLONASS_Enable
* GPS_Enable
3. Even in 12-15 Satellites View also.... The GPS not giving same location repeatedly..It is giving different lat&log every 2-3 minutes....
4. When wanted to use HOT,WARM,COLD Starts.
5. After these Starts, Even though I didn't get satellite connectivity. How long, I need to wait to resend these Start commands.

Thanks

Are you outside, with a clear view of the sky? GPS usually does not work indoors.

I am at outside, but GPS Chip antenna is inside the Plastic box. It takes 30 Minutes time to connect or sometimes not at all connecting...

Take the antenna out of the box, and try again.
