I had a reply to my ticket now. It confirms that the removed cap is already missing from my board.

RE: GPS Not Working
Somewhat late to this but, for UK people i just found this.
which at £0.10 seems an absolute steal!
RE: Programming in C/C++?
It looks like i can compile and run fairly simple command line code at the moment. if i try and compile ogps (for example) then i get a number of errors which relate to additional libraries and header files and so on.
I have managed to get as far as
CLEAN SUCCESSFUL (total time: 60ms) cd '/home/ianm/ogps' /usr/bin/make -f Makefile [ 33%] Building C object CMakeFiles/ugps.dir/main.c.o [ 66%] Building C object CMakeFiles/ugps.dir/nmea.c.o [100%] Linking C executable ugps /home/ianm/toolchain/toolchain-mipsel_24kc_gcc-5.4.0_musl-1.1.15/bin/../lib/gcc/mipsel-openwrt-linux-musl/5.4.0/../../../../mipsel-openwrt-linux-musl/bin/ld: cannot find -lubox /home/ianm/toolchain/toolchain-mipsel_24kc_gcc-5.4.0_musl-1.1.15/bin/../lib/gcc/mipsel-openwrt-linux-musl/5.4.0/../../../../mipsel-openwrt-linux-musl/bin/ld: cannot find -lubus collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status CMakeFiles/ugps.dir/build.make:120: recipe for target 'ugps' failed make: *** [ugps] Error 1 CMakeFiles/Makefile2:67: recipe for target 'CMakeFiles/ugps.dir/all' failed make: *** [CMakeFiles/ugps.dir/all] Error 2 Makefile:127: recipe for target 'all' failed make: *** [all] Error 2
has anyone else tried this yet? I think it is upset about libraries but I am not 100% on this as the whole linux things is a bit new to me at present.
RE: [Project] Display GPS Location on OLED
I have this set up and working now but I was wanting to try and leave the heading info off and replace it with the time or something.
I can easily add the system time but I can't see a way (yet) of getting the gps time out. I am thinking at the moment that I will need to extract it from the NMEA data as the ogps calls don't supply it .
RE: gps receiver not locking
That is a picture of my board as it arrived from Onion. I have not made any modification at all.
The only thing I have done to it is to disconnect the antenna and connect an external active antenna. Once the external antenna is connected I get a solid fix with no issues. With the internal antenna... nothing.
