GPS died?
#1
The detector suddenly reported no GPS fix yesterday. "No valid 1PPS pulse" tried to warm restart the GPS, then Cold, then rebooot the card. Nothing. And when I got home I did the same. Still no GPS fix. And when I start the card, the green light on the GPS does not blink or light or nothing. (It blinked before until it got GPS fix, now, nothing)
What could it be? Did the GPS chip die? What should I try next?

Are you 100% sure it is soldered correctly - if not .... resoldering
Removing: warm throughout one side a time and gently lift few mm
Even for trained, it can be a challange to solder it correctly

Welcome to the Club Snicker. I have an old system and my gps died a few weeks ago. But on the other side, it is not really dead. The PPS keeps going, but there is no fix. I can´t imagine whats wrong.

I can try of course, but is seems very strange. Since it suddenly happened 2 days after init. Running fine all the time. And nothing moved or touched it when it when it suddenly stopped working.

Please provide a log of the GPS. How was the reception before the module has died?

I don't know where I can find any logs? The reception was excellent. I had 14 satellites in view on ext. antenna mounted on the rooftop. And very fast fix position. And no GPS errors.
Now it gives me the GPS error a minute after boot. "No valid 1PPS pulse" no matter if the ext. antenna is connected or not. No green light next to the GPS chip.

Is it possible to order a new GPS module to see if that fixes it?
