Hi Alex, sorry for the late reply. how are you going with this? Do you see the same issues if you run gpsmon only and not cgps?March 22, 2023 at 1:46 pm #18064
If you are still having issues, please email sales @ ozzmaker.comMarch 15, 2023 at 11:27 am #18042
we should be able to update the cmux program so that it can workout if the SARA-R5 is in CMUX mode... ill get back to you on this.
There other issue is strange. There is a little delay when accessing or leaving the virtual serials, but it should <1 second, this is normal.
What Pi are you using?
Is it overclocked?
Do you have anything else attached or running?March 14, 2023 at 10:47 pm #18038
If you dont enable the mux and cold boot the Pi and the SARA-R5, do you get random characters when connecting to Serial0?
In the second scenario, after the reboot... if you get garbage on serial0, can you try and connect the pin highlighted below to ground for 1 second. this will reset the SARA-R5. Then run CMUX again.February 24, 2023 at 3:59 pm #17963
what version of Python are you using? you can find this out with
python -VFebruary 10, 2023 at 4:11 pm #17947
no.. go ahead here if you likeFebruary 10, 2023 at 12:39 pm #17939
It is the blue arrow
On the next version, we will place an indicator on the PCBJanuary 27, 2023 at 9:30 pm #17826
Its best to us U-center to configure this;
You would also need to disable unneeded GNSS. E.g. just have GPS enabledJanuary 16, 2023 at 1:20 pm #17745
Hi, i am surprised this has taken so long for someone to pick up this mistake.
The image is correct, it is JP12. Ill get the text updated.. sorry for the inconvenience.December 31, 2022 at 3:13 pm #17668
If you want to see NMEA sentences in gpsmon, kill gpsd using
sudo killall gpsdThen run gpsmon specifying the serial interface
You should be able to see the HDOP value, this is a good indication of accuracy;
For the second GPS, if HDOP is between 0.5-1.2.. seeing other GNSS will not improve the accuracy greatly.
If the HDOP is really high.. then check these two items;
-switch is set to Ext for external antenna. (I assume you already have this set)
-If using external antenna which uses SMA-uFl adapter.. make sure all screws ands nuts, especially on the back of the SMA connector, are tight
You could also try a more aggressive reset which resets the entire module
echo -e -n "\xb5\x62\x06\x04\x04\x00\xff\xff\x01\x00\x0e\x61" > /dev/serial0
You can also use U-Center to see what exactly is happening.

Sorry for the delay.
Do you have any jumper cables? It would be good to do a loopback test on the serial port, connect TX to RX. Open it with minicom, everything you type should be echoed back. Some more info here;
Can you also take a photo of the top half of the BerryGPS-IMU and upload it here. In the past, we have had components been knocked offDecember 7, 2022 at 11:00 pm #17637
Can you please show the output of these commands;
<strong>dmesg | grep tty</strong>
<strong>stty -a -F /dev/serial0</strong>
<strong>grep uart /boot/config.txt</strong>

How do you have the BerryGPS-IMU connected? is it sitting on top of the Raspberry PI GPIO?November 18, 2022 at 10:57 pm #17607
Yes, it does. Maybe the service was offline when you tried?
I just did a test and it worked. see screenshot below. you also need to enter in a Token use 6_cr63HodUWcy7bs4tjQ0wNovember 15, 2022 at 4:16 pm #17602
For <27 that would be for a warm start from previously having a fix... and if no power is lost to the GPS. (this is why there is a superCap included which should last for 1-2 hrs proving battery backup to the GPS.)
It usually takes between 10-30 mins for first time to fix.
We test every unit to see that data is received over serial. We then test every 10th for GPS, using an external antenna.
Can you share a close up photo of the top half of the board, i want to make sure nothing is missing
