Nothing at all. The LED is not blinking and no location data are being send.

If you connect to u-center does it run and start flashing led? If so have you tried going to config view and clicking on config>save current config? You can also select revert to factory default and save in case it got some errant programming some how.

Yes, the led is flashing. I've tried to revert to factory setings already but it still keeps going not to fix satellite connection if connected to the Arduino.
See video of my settings from u-center: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4ilBUvLBcM

Under GNSS it looks like none of the receiver engines are configured or enabled. Odd as the default usually has them turned on. Under CFG if you have already clicked on "revert to default" and then send and it didn't at least configure and enable GPS GNSS then I guess you need to manually configure them. Did you update this module because I did not think NEO-6M had all those options.

with NEO-6M I assume you only need gps and sbas configured and enabled

Thanks a lot! I'll try that just tomorrow, it's deep night here and it would be somewhat curious walking on the street now with a notebook and gps antenna in my hand.

So I've tried that and additionally connected external power source to the gps module.
Green LED flashs, so that's good. But now I don't receive any data via serial link on the Arduino.
I think my Arduino Mini have not been able to deliver enough power to the module but I don't know why it receive no data since before that does (not longitude, time, etc...).
I've tried that both with default and settings provided by pug398.

Can't help you with the arduino end of it but I would try to verify data is coming out of gps module separate from u-center. There are several free pc based gps programs online as well as a simple serial terminal program. Connect your module to pc and run either gps program or serial monitor to verify data. With serial monitor you just specify port, baud, bits, parity and start session watching data (garbage) scroll across screen. I use free putty.exe and under serial specify com port and baud. GPS pc program would show you sat info. Sounds like gps module is working if it blinks the fix led.

As far as I know, Neo-6M doesn't do GLOSNASS - only GPS and SBAS. So maybe that hosed things.

There is the Arduino forum to ask about Arduino things. I've used the 6M no problem with the Uno and Mega boards. But I've heard the other Arduino boards have various gotchas.

I've got some discontinues bytes throught while checking the wirings (not sure if was caused by that), so I replaced Arduino Mino for Leonardo, breadboard and cables from different manufacturer. Since it is power by external power source, green LED flashes but I still receiving no data. I've tried connection with and at the last even without voltage divider. At the first time I've connected without voltage divider too and and the only logical explanation seems to me that the serial link is broken.
