Currently, I'm trying to receive a GPS location using the Waveshare GSM/GPRS/GNS Hat for the raspberry pi. After connecting the module and connecting to it using serial, I use the AT+CGNSPWR=1 command to turn on GNS. After leaving it for multiple minutes, the AT+CGNSINF command only returns: +CGNSINF: 1,0,19800106004706.000,,,,0.00,0.0,0,,,,,,0,0,,,,,

and the AT+CGPSSTATUS? command returns +CGPSSTATUS: Location Not Fix

Any idea why it's not getting a location and what could be done to fix it?

    Troubleshooting suggestion: (1) Perhaps you should place the GPS receiver in an open space.

    Gave it a try, but even on my balcony with a unobstructed view of the sky it has the same results. Commented Feb 27, 2023 at 3:58

    Is your antenna with a long cable? This might help: raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/130705/…. Or get a cheapy Neo 6/7/8M and use ublox ucentre to do the setup and testing.

    I once tried SIM7600 and found the GPS part disappointing: raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/113992/…. That is whay I suggest to try Neo xM to compare and contrast.

    @tlfong01 I'm using the antenna which came with the module, which has a long cable. Where can i find a module using the Neo xM for the raspberry pi? Commented Feb 27, 2023 at 16:31
