The L86 is an ultra-compact GNSS POT (Patch on Top) module with an embedded 16 mm × 16 mm × 4.0 mm patch antenna and utilizes the MediaTek GNSS chipset MT3333 of the new generation. Designed to be compatible with Quectel GPS L80 module with its compact and unified form factor, the module provides a flexible and scalable platform for migrating from GPS to GNSS. This space-saving design makes the L86 a perfect module for miniature devices. Equipped with its LCC package and integrating patch antenna, the L86 has exceptional performance both in acquisition and tracking.

Combining advanced AGPS called EASY™ (Embedded Assist System) and proven AlwaysLocate™ technology, the L86 achieves the highest performance and fully meets the industrial standard. The EASY™ technology allows the L86 to calculate and predict orbits automatically using the ephemeris data (of up to 3 days) stored in internal RAM memory. As a result, the L86 can fix position quickly even at indoor signal levels with low power consumption. With AlwaysLocate™ technology, the L86 can adaptively adjust the on/off time to achieve balance between positioning accuracy and power consumption according to the environmental and motion conditions.

The L86 module supports automatic antenna switching function and short circuit protection function. The module can achieve the switching between internal patch antenna and external active antenna, while keeping positioning during the switching process.

Due to its compact design, high precision and sensitivity, the L86 is perfectly suitable for a broad range of M2M applications such as portable device, automotive, personal tracking, smart safety, and industrial PDA. Besides, the module is especially suitable for special applications, like GPS mouse and OBD.
