  • Hello,
    I use this Venus board with a passive antenna.
    On Vcc, I measured 81 mA after powering up, and 61mA after a fix. (Nav LED unsoldered).
    I use power safe mode and 1 hz rate at 19200 bauds.
    In the datasheet you can read “28mA operating current”!
    What can I do to reduce consumption?
    Thank you.

No public wish lists :(
