We have an updated product: LoNet 808 - Mini GSM/GPRS + GPS Breakout
For customers who had ordered the old version will get the new one for replace.
LoNet is a GSM and GPS two-in-one function module. It is based on the latest GSM/GPS module SIM808 from SIMCOM, supports GSM/GPRS Quad-Band network and combines GPS technology for satellite navigation.
It features ultra-low power consumption in sleep mode and integrated with charging circuit for Li-Ion batteries, that make it get a super long standby time and convenient for projects that use rechargeable Li-Ion battery. It has high GPS receive sensitivity with 22 tracking and 66 acquisition receiver charnels. Besides, it also supports A-GPS that available for indoor localization.
The module is controlled by AT command via UART and supports 3.3V and 5V logical level. It comes with a mini GPS and GSM antenna, but not includes Li-Po battery. In addition, to use this module, you still need an unlock SIM-Card supporting GPRS service.
Hi, just to be sure using this module can i use it as a simple GPS only ? is there a way to switch between GPS / AGPS mode ? can i send and receive sms and calls ?
Yes, it can be used as a simple GPS only, and also can be used for sending and receiving sms/calls. Regarding the GPS and AGPS mode, they can be switched by AT command.
Thank you exactly what i wanted to hear.
Hi, lonet support 3g sim?
Yes it supports 3g sim (USIM) but sim808 chip can't connect to 3G networks
How can it support 3g but at the same time not be able to connect to 3g networks?
Some sims can connect to both 3G and 2G networks (In my country all the sims I have tried, three different networks, can do that). In this device for example, the sim would connect to a 2g network.
Hi , what is the connection , If I want to connect the LoNet-Mini to Arduino with power from Arduino and without Battery .
The arduino can't provide enough milliAmps to the sim808 chip
