Are any additional components required to be added to get GPS to work or is all that included in the board?
You will need a Passive GPS Antenna. It also works with active GPS Antenna but needs small soldering on the board.
Can I use Active GNSS/GPS antenna with the HAT?
Yes, Active GNSS/GPS antenna can be used with the HAT. In order to use it, you will need to solder the Active Antenna Enabling jumper (SJX) as here.
Can I power both Raspberry Pi and the HAT only through the Raspberry Pi USB power supply?
Yes, powering the Raspberry Pi is enough. It will power the attached HAT.
How do I activate the Serial of the Raspberry Pi to communicate with the module via UART?
A serial can be enabled by following the instructions below:
- Start raspi-config: sudo raspi-config.
- Select option 5 - interfacing options.
- Select option P6 - serial.
- At the prompt Would you like a login shell to be accessible over serial? answer 'No'.
- At the prompt Would you like the serial port hardware to be enabled? answer 'Yes'.
- Exit raspi-config and reboot the Pi for changes to take effect.
Does it work with Verizon?
