How to enable gps on Cinterion EHS8 | Thales IoT Developer Community

February 3, 2016 - 8:31pm, 2659 views


We have a Cinterion EHS8 module, and we can not have the gps working. We are working on linux based system, with cdc-acm driver that allow to present /dev/ttyACM0-ttyACM6 devices.

We expect to have the GPS working and sending NMEA sentences over /dev/ttyACM0. We have managed to enable it by means of AT commands, typing: at^sgpsc="Engine","3". Besides I can only start the gps engine using mode 3, mode 1 gives me an error.

At that moment we have /dev/ttyACM5 for a few minutes throwing up NMEA sentences, but after a that few minutes, /dev/ttyACM5 goes back to AT parsing mode...

Could please tell me what is the right method to enable stand-alone gps, and have NMEA sentences over serial device...

Thank you
