Wow, I'm amazed at the ease of use for these modules. I wired it up to output through a RS232 Line driver and then to hyperterminal and just watched all the beautiful NMEA messages come spitting out. Here is the problem though. When I first turned it on I was inside and after about 3 minutes I realized it wasn't going to acquire any sattelites indoors so took it to my porch. After booting up about 45 seconds later it locked a signal and the LAT/LONG fields and everything started updating. I check with my cell phone and it was almost exact.
Well, I decided to put the project down for the night and return tommorow and worry about having my microcontroller deal with the data later, but when I returned and powered on the module, the outputs are different and after about 2 minutes it just locks up for some reason. Below is the last few messages coming from the module. The first time I powered it up, it only outputted the "OK to Send" output once in the begining, but now it does it every couple output sentances and like I said after about 2 minutes it just stops and I have to reset it to get it going again? What could have happened? Is it in some trickle power mode or something? I only tried to send it input commnads once, to turn off everything but the GPGGA output but it didn't seem tot accept it.
Thanks for the help, I thought I was so close to having everything working and now the GPS module just seems to quit on me.
