GPS problem with mmcli

I have a problem with mmcli to control GPS nmea on two different Modem: Sierra EM7455 and Huawei ME906S.

"mmcli -m 0 --location-enable-gps-nmea" return error: couldn't setup location gathering: 'GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.ModemManager1.Error.Core.Unsupported: Cannot enable unsupported location sources: 'gps-nmea'.

The command "mmcli -m 0 --location-status" return only "3gpp-lac-ci" location capabilities, so I can't read gps coordinate with mmcli command.

Other mmcli commands works (enable modem,connection via LTE), only with AT commands I can get gps position.

What can I do? Is something related to driver of the modem?

Best Regards,

Marco Bortolazzo
