Problems with GPS NMEA

Hi!
I'm trying to use the GPS NMEA to connect to my mobile phone as GPS device. However, when I start the module (GPS NMEA), it connects to the phone but says "no fix". Then when trying to refresh (I have set refresh period to 5 secs) it says "Failed to connect to.... connection refused". I am using Share GPS on my Samsung mobile. 

Anyone got advice on how to make it work?

Hi Magnus,
I have no experience with Share GPS but I use NETGPS on my Samsung phone and that works quite well (No Licence with limited time).
Connection data has to be added once to GPS NMEA and the server has to be started in the app.

Best Regards
