Lets start with the Copernicus . . . my connections are:
R2, BOOT, XRST, VCC, XSTBY: 3.3V
TX-B: serial data output (by default this is NMEA at 4800 baud)
It's just giving me the GPS coordinates of Sparkfun non-stop for an hour, and won't lock on to a single sat. I'm using their recommended ceramic antenna, I'm in a tall building, it's a sunny day, near a window. Other GPS units can get a lock.
Am I missing a connection?
As for the uBlox (with DIYdrones adapter) . . . there was a temporary freak power failure on my mcu setup, and even though the GPS should have been protected, maybe something weird happened that caused it to fry . . .
Anyway, it no longer outputs any serial data (at any baud rate), but voltages check out fine. Is it fried? Any other ideas on how to debug it?
(I'll go post over at DIYdrones in a bit)
