Connect the GPS device and open Device Manager to check whether it is showing in Device Manager or not. It should show under “Ports (COM & LPT)”. Depending on the chipset, it will show as Silicon Labs or CH9102 etc. If the device is showing with a yellow exclamation mark, then the driver for the device is not working. Re-install the correct driver. If the device is showing under ‘Other’, then install the driver for the device.
If the device is not showing in Device Manager, then it is faulty and needs to be repaired. Call us on our given numbers to initiate repair process.
If the device is showing in Device Manager, then move onto next step.
Open the GPS testing tool ‘Mini GPS’ (keep the device connected). Click on ‘Auto Detect’ button and select the COM port (as showing in Device Manager) and then click ‘Scan’. If the device is working properly, the connection will open on the required baud rate and at the top corner of the black box you will be able to see a yellow circle blinking. If the blinking yellow circle is visible, then the device is alright.
If GPS signals are available at the spot where you have kept the GPS device, it will start capturing signals. GPS device should be in open area, facing skywards. Once adequate signals are captured, the ‘Fix Type’ will change from ‘No Fix’ to ‘2D SPS’, ‘3D SPS’ or ‘3D GPRS’. Once signal fix is achieved, close Mini GPS tool and then start GPS capture in your required application like Aadhaar.
