    Hello all! I have recently installed my BerryGPS-IMU atop my raspberry pi zero w. I am able to see  raw gps data with minicom but even after being outside for 30-40 minutes I am unable to get a location. The switch is set to INT antenna mode and all headers are soldered and checked with a continuity tester. Attached are images of both a sample output from the device via minicom as well as a picture of the GPS board.


    If you are outside and you do have clear access to sky… you should get a fix within 30mins. So.. something isnt right.

    Can you please try to reset the GPS module;
    echo -e -n “\xb5\x62\x06\x04\x04\x00\xff\xff\x02\x00\x0e\x61” > /dev/serial0

    I was outside walking around a college campus for around 40 minutes. I tried both the reset command provided as well as grounding the gps reset pin.
