GPS Module GY-GPS6MV2 don't receive GPS coordenates (TinyGPS Library)

Hi there :wink:

I bought recently a GPS serial module GY-GPS6MV2 to make some expermients…

This module work with the library TinyGPS :

It seems to be comunication between the arduino and the GPS module but the I don’t receive GPS coordenates… :confused:

I followed this tutorial :

After 1 minut, the led of the GPS module is blinking.

Now I saw this problem : The battery of the GPS module is unsoldered…

Using this code I think I receive the GMT hour…

#include <SoftwareSerial.h>

SoftwareSerial gps(4,3);

char dato=' ';

void setup()
{
 Serial.begin(115200);            
 gps.begin(9600); 
}


void loop()
{
  if(gps.available())
  {
    dato=gps.read();
    Serial.print(dato);
  }
}

I tried to power the GPS module with and external 3.7 battery, I tried to put the system outdoor but without sucess…

Do you think is the problem here? Is there a solution to “reprogram” the delault configuration of the GPS module after resolding the battery?

Info : I’m living in Mexico, so no problem for GPS signal?

Thanks for your help.

Regards :wink:

PD : the GPS module seems to work, I tested it with u-center and I get the results :slight_smile: Now I have to get it working with arduino…

What does UCenter use for the GPS baud rate?

Hi there!

TinyGPS and de TinyGPS++ libraries are using a 4800bps software serial connection.

With u-center, the module is connected at 9600.

I modified the speed of the sofwareserial to 9600 and it works!

Now comes THE QUESTION...

How I can force the GY-GPS6MV2 to work at 4800bps? (using u-center?)

How I can force the GY-GPS6MV2 to work at 4800bps? (using u-center?)

The module documentation will explain that.

Yes but how I can do it? I have to send serial commands? This data is saved into the EEPROM of the module?

Regards.

This data is saved into the EEPROM of the module?

No. [u]Read[/u] the information that you posted.

OK Correct. So pins are hardware connection? PIN 14&15?

Hi, Axxel. It seems we've gone through the same issue. I have fixed it reviewing the RX/TX pins. Not all pins are suitable, it depends on your board. Take a look at: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/softwareSerial Hope it helps!
