Gibberish output from GPS module

Sat Jun 29, 2019 5:03 am

Hello

Some background first. With some help from community members, I managed connect a GPS module(Link mentioned below with info about the model) with my raspberry pi 3b+ through USB port. I can see a device ttyUSB0. I have installed minicom package and tried "minicom -b 4800 -o -D /dev/ttyUSB0' command. It keeps on giving me a gibberish output. My language setup is en.UTF8. Also I waited for 20 mins to get a lock-in. I also disabled bluetooth by changing config.txt.

Anything else that I can do to get a genuine output from the GPS module ??

The link you posted says the default baud rate is 9600 while you are specifying 4800. This can be an issue.
