For what it's worth, I have seen GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Gallileo, SBAS, and QZSS in u-center v20.01 with a SparkFun NEO-M9N breakout board (I think you have an 8-series). I counted 53 simultaneous birds at one point.

Best regards,

Your hardware is fine, your software is not.  If you want to get
good performance out of your receiver then you need to upgrade your
gpsd to git head.


Thanks, Gary.

It's not the performance I need to check, simply whether the hardware will receive Galileo satellites, and using the official U-Blox software under Windows should be quite capable of this, so that's the route I will take.

For the Raspberry Pi, I hope that 3.17 will at least read the NMEA Galileo strings and use the data.  I do wish there was greater compatibility between versions, though!
