I'm finding the OVMS GPS really unreliable.
For instance, here are the current "v.p." values from my OVMS.
I'm apparently going 88 km/h on the highway notwithstanding that my car is
parked at my house:
Earlier when I went out the GPS position got similarly stuck and only
recovered when I power cycled the OVMS.
OVMS# simcom status
Network Registration: RegisteredHome
Signal: -99 dBm
PPP: Connected on channel: #2
GPS: Connected on channel: #1
I turned the modem off with the gui and then turned it on. Result of doing
that was it did not get a PPP connection after some minutes, and the GPS
did not connect.
I tried this twice with the same result. Position is still the old one as
above, no 3G PPP connection and no GPS connection.
My GPS antenna is currently on the dashboard - could it be overheating in
the sun there? - it is probably pretty warm. (But my car is currently
under shade since I got home)
I now went and power cycled the OVMS and the SIMCOM connected successfully,
GPS connected, and has the correct position:
OVMS# metrics list v.p.
I'm running with the ABRP script - is it possible that this is impacting
Otherwise I'm looking for ideas...
