Hi Mark,

Thank you for your response, I will look at adding the line to config.txt, although the board has behave faultlessly today…

I have actually being running the PI/BerryGPS-GSM off a FTDI/USB lead and powering the combination through the 5volt header – not USB, although I did try powering the combination of a decent power supply when the Leds went out without success.

There is nothing else on the USB Bus, although there is a Franklin lighting detector on the IC2 bus, powered of the 3 volt line, as above I am using the serial console for debugging.

The Leds only went off yesterday when I sent the AT commands to start assisted GPS and route strings through USB.

Although I have not seen the problem today, the last 20 lines of a dmesg are:

One thing I have noticed today is that  “hologram modem location/operator” commands are returning coordinates for a different location and operator to what I was seeing before – Is it possible that I was connecting to different mast (due to maintenance) it tipped me over the power budget available from the PI/Serial combination – or is that a red herring!
