SparkFun ZOE-M8Q GPS Chip with RPI 4


Hi so I am trying to connect a SparkFun ZOE-M8Q GPS Chip to an RPI 4. I purchased the SparkFun Pi QWIIC hat and used it to connect to the GPS chip. On boot the chip's led turns red showing it is being properly powered. I followed the SparkFun guide for setting up the QWIIC hat. However, for their guide on the GPS chip, they only have one for Arduino. I tried following other GPS raspi tutorials online but none of them are working for me and my particular chip. Any advice on how I can properly configure this chip?

A very specialised question.
Unless someone is in an identical situation, nobody can help.
That might change if you provide more facts (beyond namedropping) and technical information.

I'd email the manufacturer for instructions.

If using i2c the provided driver is not functional. Its due to a i2c clock pi bug. I don't know what other issues there are with the device connected to a Pi.

I agree contacting Sparkfun might help. Some things to consider.

How is the device connected i.e. i2c, spi or uart? Are the jumpers configured correctly.
