 Could you please clarify what you mean by "some other associated components"

The way I am measuring it is putting one side of the voltmeter on the ground of the GPS module  and the other side of the volt meter to the ground of my power supply.

Here is an image of connections (plus how i am checking GPS consumption). Planning on removing the DC-DC buck converters and connecting everything to a LiPo battery.


You said;

"I posted an image of the module on one of my other posts. (18th Nov 2017)"

Which was not an image of a Ublox GPS.

What you have now just posted, is an image of a different GPS, which is identified as a Ublox (Neo6M) althought the code you are using is for a Mediatek.

I give up.
$50SAT is now Silent (but probably still running)

The gps in the image (circuit diagram) is exactly the same as my gps the image in the circuit diagram is antenna facing up.

I will edit the image to replace "Neo6m" to "Unknown" when back at the computer or put an image of my actual GPS.

When I bought the GPS, it was listed as a Neo6m and is identical apart from the different sticker on the chip on the back which is what caused the confusion with the commands.

The circuit diagram was to illustrate how I had the multimeter connected to the gps to measure its current.

srnet, Here is the edited image of the connections (with my actual GPS module) as you can see it is very similar.

Does this make it clearer??
