You haven't got a satellite fix. Try leaving it for longer.

$GPGGA, the value after the 'E'. 0 is invalid.

In all fairness the Arduino shield is a nice piece of kit and it is the shield that the GSM library is intended to work with. But as Nick says, there are alternatives available.

If you do go for an alternative, two things to consider:
1) Do you need a detachable/separate  aerial?
2) Can you configure which pins it uses to communicate with the Arduino?

Don't use version 1.0.6 until the problem is sorted.

So you might want to anonymise your number if it is yours, and I should have asked earlier - what shield and which Arduino are you using? Link to shield please.
35  Using Arduino / LEDs and Multiplexing / Re: How to send the state of an LED via SMS on: September 25, 2014, 01:26:34 pm
First of all, a couple of things. Either put the opening brace '{' on a line of its own, or don't. Don't mix the the two styles. And the Auto-format feature is your friend. Use it - a lot.

Anyway, apart from that your code works perfectly on my setup. I'm using an Uno R3 and a Seeedstudio SIM900 shield.

#a0 turns the led on pin 13 off
#a1 turns the led on pin 13 on
#aS reports the status of the led pin to serial monitor. Probably just sent you an SMS too as I didn't change the destination number!

It comes on its own, you need an Arduino to be able to use it. And unless you have a very good reason not to, I would choose an Uno.

If I remember correctly you 'simply' need to incorporate the lat and long in the URL to maps.google....

Across the top of the screen, just above where the white section ends,  is a set of tabs. One reads 'Reference'. Third item down on the right hand side.

Please read the post How to Use This Forum and mark your code up using the '#' key.

Looks like the problem is solved

Which Arduino are you using?

There is a copy of SerialRelay and instructions in my sig link.

Don't forget to change the SoftwareSerial pins to suit the shield you are using.
42  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: GSM shield not working on: September 23, 2014, 06:09:19 am
Have you tried using a SerialRelay sketch to make sure that everything is working OK?

If not I'd try that.
43  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: GSM shield not working on: September 23, 2014, 05:51:57 am
The posted code looks fairly standard but

Code:
result = '\0';

doesn't look right.

According to the instructions:

Quote
Make sure the serial monitor is set to send a newline when you press return.

Have you done that? On my IDE it's a selection box at the bottom of the window.

Post some code? And a smaller, in focus photo wouldn't go amiss.

Please edit your post to put your code withing
Code:
tags. You can use the '#' button, or ready the sticky on how to use the forum at the top of this board for full instructions.

Which shield are you using? Link please.
