Regarding GPS usage in INFORCE 6309

Questions and discussions related to Inforce 6309™ Micro SBC

We are trying to get GPS location from the Inforce 6309 SBC, using 'GPS Test' apk pushed into the Android.
Connecting active GPS antenna, we are able to get GPS coordinates.But this is not sucessful using passive antenna and onboard PCB antenna.

1. Can you tell if any hardware register modification/configuration needs to be done from Android source to activate the GPS sensor readings using PCB antenna/passive antenna? Currently we dont intend to make any hardware changes(by pulling out resistors) but control through software.
2. Is it possible to share the hardware schematics of the Inforce 6309 board?

Thanks & Regards,

Reception would be poor with a passive antenna. We recommend that you use an active antenna.
