    'build a Pi+Adafruit GPS module in the past and given up realising it needs line of sight to work (or external antenna)'

    FYI - non-Bangle - I used the inexpensive Ublox NEO-6M GPS Module and was able to get a minimum of five, usually eight satellite fixes in under a minute, when indoors fifteen feet from sliding patio door. No line of sight. Used their antenna - see images at page bottom

    Programming the Ublox NEO-6M GPS configuration

  • Cool... I wonder how much difference the Antenna makes... I still have the Adafruit GPS unit around... need to get myself an antenna.

    In the meantime, totally enjoying Bangle's GPS capabilities.
