Didn’t smell like the smoke was let out, just smelled hot, like residual flux heating up or something. Not sure how to check the gps. I’ll dive into the openwrt forums and look into the AT commands. I don’t need GPS anyway. I’ll probably get a newer modem with better band coverage and maybe cat 4 or 6 when those prices come down.
Thanks for the 10dbi link. Already ordered 8dbi antennas earlier today for the same price. Guess I’ll try these too and return the ones that are lacking. I think I have some ts-9 to sma adapters, maybe I’ll use them on my other hotspots.
I just use this mifi as toy anyway. I have a few regular hotspots I use for traveling and work. I love the little gli routers, I use them all the time for little projects.
