QMI Interface with 3G-4G/LTE Base Shield v2

QMI interface has been mostly asked tutorial for Raspberry Pi 3 and Raspberry Pi 4 with Quectel UC20 / Quectel EC25 attached on our Sixfab 3G-4G/LTE Base Shield v2.

This interface is also compatible with

Raspberry Pi 3G/4G&LTE Base HAT
Raspberry Pi Cellular IoT Application Shield – LTE-M & NB-IoT & eGPRS
Raspberry Pi Cellular IoT HAT – LTE-M & NB-IoT & eGPRS

##Note: This has been tested with Raspberry Pi 4 too.

In this tutorial, we will be demonstrating you the process step by step. Without further ado, let’s get started.

GPS Tracker with 3G, 4G/LTE shield

In this tutorial we will learn how to get GPS data using 3G, 4G/LTE shield.

GPS(Global Positioning System) also known as NavStar indicates the position of an individual on the earth. The Satellites orbiting around the earth sends precise details of their positions at a regular interval of time. Once information are received by a GPS receiver, a GPS receiver can pinpoint the location.

There are also navigation systems which support in their in specific regions like GLONASS provided in Russia.

For this tutorial we will need
a. Raspberry Pi
b. 3G, 4G/LTE Shield
c. 3G, 4G/LTE module (for 3G UC20 and for 4G EC25 is used)
d. PCB Mobile Antenna (2x)
e. GPS Antenna
Here it goes
