Troubleshooting Cell Reception Freematics ONE+ Model B

Post by nunosan »

Hi,

I am having trouble connecting my Freematics ONE+ device to the cellular network. I am configuring the device using Platform IO and I can actually get it to transmit data to the Traccar Demo Server, using WIFI. But no luck on the cellular network as it keeps looping between "Searching" and "Activating" while printing the SIM Module 7070G and the IMEI. I have actually seen it go as far as printing the Network Operator name while I was testing the server configurations, but now that I have configured the server correctly I can not get it to go past the "Searching"/"Activating" loop. Please find below the sample of the monitor data:

CPU:160MHz FLASH:16MB
IRAM:329KB PSRAM:8MB
DEVICE ID:XXXXXX
TYPE:14
MEMS:ICM-42627
ACC BIAS:-0.03/0.01/1.01
GNSS:OK
OBD:NO
SD:7673 MB total, 0 MB used
File: /DATA/22.CSV

SIM7070G requires LTE-M network support otherwise it can fallback to GPRS.
