For a worrying few minutes I though the M8N I just got from unmanned-tech was faulty.
On powering up I got a brief flicker from the blue LED then nothing. No red power LED, no flashing blue “getting a lock” LED and a “No GPS fix” message on the planner screen.
Because the latter suggested that the GPS could be seen I waited and, after 20 minutes the planner reported a lock and the blue light on the M8N started to flash. Still no red power light though.
Am I correct in assuming that this is a deliberate design change, possibly a way to trim a few more mA off the power consumption?
