  • Hi, I bought one of these a while back and had the same problem of it not acquiring signal after even hours of running. However, I found that I was driving the chip through a voltage regulator that couldn't handle the current load I was applying to it and the voltage at the power pin was actually lower than expected. this caused it to spit out NMEA sentences (albeit, no data), but never acquire a signal.
    the fix was to just simply put a beefier voltage regulator to the chip and everything was fine and dandy after that, got a fix really fast!

No public wish lists :(
