  • I bought one a few months back – worked great the first couple of days. Now, no matter how many satellites signals it distinguishes (u-blox 6.01 software driving) it simply will not get a fix – or a time. I’ve seen zero satellites for hours in a clear sky then 16 all of a sudden at the same location (Durham, NC). It isn’t obvious to me there is an assembly issue with the one I have.

    I read u-blox’s GPS compendium and decided to upload an almanac (not that that explains the inability to decode the time from the many satellites it sometimes syncs with), but that fails with this unit and the u-blox 6.01 software. The flash update fails due to a timeout. Interestingly the URL for the 5day (chosen at random) almanac returned a file which has a UBX command embedded at the beginning. I wonder if this confuses the unit because u-blox s/w issues its own UBX command before stuffing in the almanac payload.. (just a guess… I’m no expert) URL:

    that’s about 3 issues all in one… any suggestions?

No public wish lists :(
