Re: [Paparazzi-devel] LEA-5H NoFix Issue

Hi Pat and thanks alot for your reply,

It seems indeed that the issue is power-supply related, as the current 
indicator on the GCS shows way more 
fluctuation as soon as the GPS starts to look for its servers. Or is that 
normal?  See image; http://img59.imageshack.us/img59/9461/strangevoltage.jpg



Notations to the image;
1) is without GPS connected... as soon as its connected it looks the same but 
voltage displayed goes up to 11v... 
tiny spikes, no drops
2) is the phase where the GPS looks for servers... looks nasty.. 
3) is after 2-3 minutes outside. Still some spikes and drops, but not that bad 
anymore

I tried to change some power supply related settings in u-center, but with no 
success.

Please tell me how you solved your issues Pat, external power supply just for 
the GPS? Are 
we the only SPK-LEA5H+TWOG users out there having this or similar issues?  If 
yes, might this be related to defective 
hardware of some kind?



Regards

I've had a similar issue with that model GPS: I found, finally, that

the current available from the power supply seems to matter. Check

your power supply and make sure it isn't dipping down too far when you

attach the GPS.
