Super easy

Good little unit. I have not tested accuracy yet because the accuracy needs to be tested by moving around often, but it seems spot on thus far.

RAK needs to redesign the 12500

RAK needs to redesign the 12500.
They should have read the ZOE Hardware Integration manual.
They need to provide switching for the GNSS chips power on the module rather than via the 3v3_S that switches all the other peripereials connected to the base board.
They need to provide a way to disable/disconnect the I2C interface so the module can be used in other base board slots.
They need to properly implement Antenna Power switching.
They need to use a more recent u-blox part like the MIA-M10Q-00B which is almost a drop in replacement for the ZOE.
They should read the MIA-M10 Hardware Integration manual before they redesign the module.
They need to provide mounting hardware with each module/baseboard.

It works as expected, without a big impact to power consumption. Setup using meshtastic was seamless.

Good to Go transaction

Site was easy to navigate and find what I was looking for. Items had links to manufacturers documents if available. Checkout and payment easily accomplished. Shipping and deliver was fast. Initial issue with product was resolved quickly via email and replacement was quickly sent and corrected the issue. Offer was made to refund if still not happy which I refused as replacement met my expectations. I will do business with them again. GPS module integrated well with the other RAKwireless hardware. In open reception was 7 satellites and position placement on map good. Mike C.

Not very accurate

This part number Ive found barely works indoors and when outdoors sometimes is inaccurate by several hundred miles.
The other Rak pn works far better.

We are sorry to hear this. The uBlox chip on this should be extremely precise and has been reported this way by others. If you have worked with it and tried restarting the main board and updating the firmware and continue to have issues, we can swap the GPS unit for you to see if that resolves the issue. Thank you.
