GPS Shield

Hello,

I have bought the Drotek M8N XXL Version and the GPS Shield from your shop. Now my question is how I have to connect the GPS module to the Shield to increase reception. I have read that one should solder a wire to the antenna case and connect it to the shield, however there is no antenna case on the M8N. Do I just use the ground wire?

Best regards

Hello,

You don’t have to add a shield with this GPS. Don’t touch at the size please.
Thanks.

Hello,
thank you for your answer. Sorry, I have to correct myself. I have the m8n XL not the XXL version and I already bought the shield.

Look at the magneto connector on the GPS please. There is a pin with “-”.
You can use this wire and soldered on the ground of your shield.
