Electron: Help w/ Kickstarter Asset Tracker Kit

Hello, I received the kickstarter asset tracker kit a couple of days ago and started tinkering with it.
I was able to successfully connect to the cellular network and publish events.

However, when I attach the GPS shield to electron, the shield does not power up (no LEDs light up). I did test voltage at the 3.3 and GND connections on the shield and they show ~3.3v…

I would appreciate it if someone can please point me to a manual/guide for the GPS shield in this kit.

Thanks! I never bothered to look in the datasheet section - I set D6 low and got GPS turning own now - will continue to tinker :smile:
