Yesterday I tried GPS for the first time. With gpssight and tangogps I
got a fix within minutes when holding the FR out of the window. The fix
remained when moving around my home.
Then I installed gpsdrive and did some other things I don't remember
anymore. When trying with gpsdrive I could not get a fix. With gpssight
and tangogps it wasn't working either.
Today I tried outside with no result. I reflashed rootfs to rollback
software and only installed gpssight and tango again. No fix. It never
worked again so far.
So the idea of a loose contact at the antenna sounds somewhat plausible.
I looked at this:
But I don't want to open the FR right now. The connector is visible
right under the battery. I can move it with my fingernail a little,
really not much.
Don't know if it is loose...
