    I can’t seem to get it to lock outside on a clear day. I’m using an mbed controller wired up exactly as it is in the example.

    This is what the data looks like that I’m getting. As you can see with the GSA messages it is saying that lock is not available. I’m using this device outside with a clear sky and it is wired up exactly as shown in demonstration. Any ideas?

    This is what it shows when I power cycle the gps. $PSRFTXT,Version2:F-GPS-03-10062312A $PSRFTXT,WAAS Enable66 $PSRFTXT,TOW: 59402718 $PSRFTXT,WK: 167560 $PSRFTXT,POS: 6378137 0 02A $PSRFTXT,CLK: 9625025 $PSRFTXT,CHNL: 1273 $PSRFTXT,Baud rate: 480065

    I tried an external power supply from the lab at my school that was isolated from the 5V supply from the mbed controller and still no lock. I walked around my block, even put the device in my truck on the dash and drove for a half hour thinking movement would help it and still no lock. The device just has the solid red light that never blinks. Is it possible my device is bad?

No public wish lists :(
