Just got a uBlox5 GPS 4hz and the antenna seems to wiggle a bit (loose) - is that normal?

The design doesn't seem to be very reliable.

Thanks
Ryan

Fortunately only the plastic cap is loose. It doesn't affect the sensitivity of the antenna.
OK thanks for that!

I may secure it with some silicone anyway.

Cheers,
Ryan
BTW the antenna broke off by the time I get back to Australia...I manage to soldered it back on (I think), we'll see.
Stik.
antenna broke off?!! not enough padding/packing ?? pls, let us know the result after test
Could you post pictures ?
See attached.

Should at least glue the antenna on to the board beside just the 3 soldering joints.

Have you tested uBlox under power yet, if you solder all connections, it should work well super glue should be fine.. Cheers Looks good..
I have not - will try as soon as I can get the DevBoard to load. I did use superglue to hold it in place. I may put a bit of epoxy anyway just to make sure.
