today I received the new Ublox NEO-M8N GPS module.
When connecting the module with USB and launching U-Center, i can access the module. But the module keeps resetting from time to time. Also in the U-Center a lot of satelites are shown, and then blank/flat line for dB and Sat Overview. After some seconds it comes back with 1 sat, then more… And then after some time same happens again. At same time i see disconnect and hear unplug / plug sound. (USB disconnect / reconnect).
Sometimes it keeps running up to 1-2 minutes, then on other times it reboots every few seconds.
Tried 3 different computers, all the same problem. Tried USB2 and USB3 ports, same problem.
Tried with 9600, 57600 and 115200 baud. Same problem.
Soldered then the 3,3V pad and connected a 3,3V FTDI with crossed RX/TX. Can connect to module. But same problem that after some time satelite signal goes flat for all sats at same time, then after some seconds back. during this time no green flash of connect symbol on bottol of U-Center. So no communication. So seems also rebooting…
Tried to reset module to default values. Back to 9600 baud. Same problem.
HELP. Is module defect?
