Tips and questions relating to the GPS modules from SFE
By Gort
Yippeeee, it works ! I guess if I had taken the time to read the Python manual first it would have been quicker, but .... I can now query the modules position via SMS and get an SMS reply. I do not know that I will be using Python scripting to run the GM862 long term, and may go to a piggyback ARM micro, but it has been a learning experience getting Python to work as I need it.

Hi Gort,

Can you please share your knowledge on how you made it happen?

I would be interested in seeing the code too. Good job!

I wrote a python script to get the GPS position via SMS. I was able to download the script and enable it. But it doesnt seem to run at all after reboot.
Any help will be appreciated.

Maybe somebody want to some exchange.
I will give a working python script you will help me with hardware.

My python code started working once i removed those 'print' debug statements.
Anyway for your hardware, what r u planning to do? Please be more specific about your design. I made a board of which the GM862 module was only a part. So i can help u out if u specify your design needs.
