Re: LtAP Mini GPS useless without antenna

GPS device is built in. Antenna needs to be connected externally. I mean, it says that right in your image. Read it please, outside the yellow marked words.
Fix your product description and refund me for misleading marketing.
Thanks.

Apologies I updated the OP - it was set to internal which did not work and then I tried external for shits and giggles - also did not work.

This is why you only should add/remove antenna while there is no power (GPS has an active 3V antenna). Software wise, I think it loo...

Re: LtAP Mini GPS useless without antenna

Internal antenna exists and works if you have no miniPCIe module inside or if mounted with ports pointing up.
Surely, most cases will have a module, this is why we mention recommendation for external antenna.
