Finally solved: GPS doesn't work on RP4, only on RP3 or PC #57227
For weeks I couldn't figure out, why my GPS USB Dongle (10€, U-Blox7) didn't work with Stellarmate on RP4. If anybody has similar problems, I hope this post helps them:
On the PC or with RP3, the GPS Dongle will get the current positon in a matter of seconds. On the RP4, I could leave it running for hours without a fix. GPSD lets me see that the dongle is picking up the signal of many satellites, but for some reasons there was never a fix possible.
Today I realized, that the USB3 connection of the RP4 interferes with the GPS Signal. It depends on the connected device: A CMOS camera or USB-Stick connected by USB3 doesn't cause much interference. But as soon as I connect the PegasusAstro Pocket Powerbox Advance via USB3, the GPS can't get any usable signal anymore. Even if the GPS is pluged into a completeley different device 50cm away, the interference is still too strong.
I now connect the Powerbox only via USB2, that solved the problem and I can use the GPS dongle without issues. Of course this has the downside that I can't use the USB3 speeds at the Hub on the Powerbox anymore. Luckily the only two devices that I need USB3 speeds for (Camera and USB-Storage) can fit on the RP4 directly and don't cause too much interference.
