GPS Satellite problem


Got a GPS (Copernicus Module from Sparkfun) connected to an Arduino. Everything works find that means that I get the NMEA sentence but it won't find any satellites. But when I touch the Antenna or a metal part it does discover immediately the satellites. What's the problem?

Thx Andy

What’s the problem?

You need to touch the antenna sooner.

Seriously, sounds like a hardware problem rather than a networking problem.

Try moving outside the building .... what type of antenna does this unit have ?

I do use the Antenna Antenna GPS Embedded SMA from Sparkfun... Are there better antennas in the same size range?

Thx Andy
