Cannot fetch GSMLOC using SIM900A

Sir ,

I am using the SIM900A hooked up with an Arduino. I can receive and send calls fine but I need to fetch location with AT+CIPGSMLOC
This is simply returning ERROR and nothing else. I have tried starting the GPRS before requesting the location and that returns OK but still the GSMLOC command is returning error.
We have balance and data pack on the SIM and network status is also showing ‘REGISTERED (home)’

Kindly help with the error. It is simply failing there.


Try updating the firmware and see if it works. Its a basic command and it should work.
