Re: QCX+ and QLG1 GPS issue

Thanks for the very nice feedback. The manual is good, but where it can be improved I'm pleased to take the feedback to make it better still. There's a huge amount of work behind these kits and all by me, so I'm not surprised if sometimes there are errors or omissions, or something could be expressed more clearly.
Regarding your "no fixes" problem this is simply a problem in the firmware with parsing the GPS serial data. The display f-- is incorrect. I found the solution only recently and implemented it in firmware version 1.06. Your QLG1 GPS is certainly using satellites in its position fix computation, at least 4... if it is not, it cannot display the A or produce a 1pps signal (green flashing LED). The problem is just a firmware bug which in some circumstances prevents the information being properly parsed and displayed. (Don't bother to take it to an open space, it won't change anything).
