Hi Roberto,

It depends how you've integrated it. The antenna must be loaded, i.e. adhered to a plastic surface, it will most likely be off-tune if floating in free space. Also the BT antenna may affect the GPS performance if it is not connected to 50ohms. Can you give me a little more information, such as photos of the device and test setup?

Many Thanks

Steve
