Hello Carlos,

Yes, connect Pin 3 to the input of the GNSS module.

NO, do NOT connect any of the other pins to ground.  They should all be floating pads. You can place pads under pins 1,2,4,5,6 on the opposite side of the board and run a through hole via to them for better mechanical strength but there should be not ground underneath or around the antenna.

Best regards,

I tested that the Pin 3 is electrically connected to  Pins  4, 5, 6. Is that OK? Pins 1, 2 are not.

Thanks for your assistance. Regards. Carlos

Hi Carlos,

Yes, they are electrically connected through traces in the antenna itself. It is ok so long as all other pins are floating and NOT grounded.
