I mentioned this in my other thread last week, but I can’t even get the Asset Tracker v2 to “use” the patch antenna. I have an external antenna and the fix works fine with that plugged in, but if I toggle the U-Blox config to use the patch antenna, the signal quality is exactly the same, which indicates the RF Switch is still actually utilizing the external antenna (and when I unplug the antenna the signal immediately goes dead, which further confirms it’s still trying to use the external antenna). I have yet to get an answer for how to “correctly” switch to the patch antenna.
Another thing I noticed is the Asset Tracker v2 seems to be more prone to interfering with the Electron’s cell antenna (the Taoglas one included with the Electron). I’m not sure if this is due to the smaller enclosure, the new patch antenna, or the new Asset Tracker shield (or some combination of them). If I lift the cell antenna outside of the enclosure, even a half inch outside of the enclosure, the signal is much stronger. With the cell antenna inside the enclosure I get frequent cell dropouts unless I’m in a location with good view of the sky (outdoors).
