I am working on a project of GPS tracker and I decided to use sim908 which is a GSM/GPS/GPRS combo module having complete support of AT commands to control all functionalities. So I am planning to use microcontroller like 8051 with this module.
My only target with this project is to send gps location thru gsm and gprs when

I'm using sim908-C and have designed the hardware as described in its hardware design document. My issue is i'm not getting any voltage on SIM VDD and sim908-C is unable to find network i.e. relevant LED blink rate does not decrease.
When I power up the module I see some mV on SIM VDD for very short time then it reduces to 0V.

After sim908 connecting to the server, I sent data with command AT+CIPSEND=.
When it respond the prompt "> ", I enter data.
Then wait for a long time, the modem respond "SEND OK".
The timeout is quite long (about 8-12s), so i want to improve this problem.
What command that I miss? or this is caused by server.

I am using sim908 GPS_ANT pad to connection to an SMB connector from where it is connected to external(passive) GPS antenna. But sim908 is unable to track even a single satellite. I have used other GPS modules and signal loss due to impedance mismatch can cause degradation of signal resulting in less satellites being tracked. But in this case not a

Hi, I think the problem is the passive GPS antenna.
sim908 must be used with active GPS antenna (which includes a LNA - low noise amplifier).
I use a active patch antenna with build-in 28dB LNA.

In my design, I connect GPS-VANT-IN(pin76) with VBAT pin(i use the active antenna). Everything run well.
But today, I cann't not get GPS. I used mutilmeter to check voltage on GPS-ANT(pin 79), it present 0V(in common, it present approximate VBAT). That mean is the external antenna not power supply.

Look at the schematic from the link you poster. The power pin for the sim908 is pin3. It's driven by a transistor(open collector) , which you have to drive high to turn on.
The transistor is going to pin1.

The sim908 logic levels are 2.8 volts regardless of the battery voltage.
If interfacing to 5 volts you will need level shifters otherwise erratic operation and or damage to the sim908 will follow.
