The nRF9160 System in Package (SiP) has a dedicated Global Positioning System (GPS) port to support global navigation, and the same antenna is used for both LTE and GPS. The GPS signal is RX only, and there is a low-noise amplifier (Low-Noise Amplifier (LNA)) that amplifies the signal before it is fed to the GPS RF port on the nRF9160.

Note: GPS signals do not usually penetrate ceilings or other structures. For best GPS performance, Nordic Thingy:91™ should be used outside in an open space, far from sources of interference and other structures that may block the signals.
