Background information: ublox NEO-M8N-0-01 and no MS OS, so please don't refer me to the uCenter software.
I am attempting to retrieve the software version information as described in the M-8 Receiver Description manual (section "220.127.116.11 Poll Receiver/Software Version") using the following command (code is being executed in a python script):
The only output returned to the console is '6' -- followed by NMEA strings. I have attempted to hard reset the module first (using the command com.write('\xb5b\x06\x04\xff\xff\x00\x08') ) to make sure the code is capturing the version info on a restart, however (while watching a streaming screen of the serial connection) there is no discernible difference in the stream of data - that is, the module does not appear to be restarting at all. The only output returned to the console is '8'.
1) How does the module indicate it is in the process of restarting? Is there any way to tell?
2) What is wrong with the command(s) I am sending?
