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?
No public wish lists :(
