HI, I have the nrf9160 dk and I am trying to run the gps on the nrfcloud but I get the location of nordic not mine location
The current modem FW does not have GPS support yet, this will be added in an upcoming release shortly. The DK therefore transmits a dummy location.
ok thanks, i was worried that my dk wasn't working correctly. Is there any documentation about the programming of the dk? I have installed the segger and I want to upload a code, I need the gps in particular
The download you can find here, I do not believe there is a lot of documentation yet except for a readme in the zip file. Doing this you will be able to update to the latest modem FW, but this does not support GPS location. As described in this blog post, modem FW that supports GPS is scheduled for March 31st.
Even if I have a custom board I cannot use the gps ?
Yes, the modem FW, i.e. the FW which controls the modem on the nRF9160 does not have support for using the GPS functionality yet. This applies for the nRF9160 DK and any custom board with nRF9160. Once this has been added and released, both nRF9160 DK and any custom board with nRF9160 will be able to read GPS position.
