Library for SIM5320

I need to use the SIM5320A gsm on my project instead of the SIM800L (since the SIM800 doesn’t support 3G ). Although the AT commands are similar, they don’t match up completely using:
#define TINY_GSM_MODEM_SIM800
#include <BlynkSimpleSIM800.h

this is what I get:

Hardware details: MEga 2560, SIM 800, Push Data
with a simple button and LED created, just to see if I can get this to work with this modem.

The SIM5320 is listed as being supportted by TinyGSM

SIMCom WCDMA/HSPA/HSPA+ Modules (SIM5360, SIM5320, SIM5300E, SIM5300EA)

I would have thought that

#define TINY_GSM_MODEM_SIM5360

would have been the correct modem to choose.

Pete.

indeed! that would seem to be ideal and probably a solution to try, but unfortunately that wasn’t a selection option provided anywhere.
Even in the list of supported devices from the Blynk configuration options listed on the web site: Cellular (GSM/3G/LTE)

  • SIMCom SIM800 series (SIM800A, SIM800C, SIM800L, SIM800H, SIM808, SIM868)
  • SIMCom SIM900 series (SIM900A, SIM900D, SIM908, SIM968)
  • A6/A7
  • M590
  • BG96
  • GPRSbee
  • Microduino GSM
  • Adafruit FONA (Mini Cellular GSM Breakout)
  • Adafruit FONA 800/808 Shield

So where would I change modem selection ?

if I simply comment out the prev ( ) and replace :
//#define TINY_GSM_MODEM_SIM800
#define TINY_GSM_MODEM_SIM5360
I get a compiler error since I suspect I still need an actual <BlynkSimpleSIM5360.h> to replace #include <BlynkSimpleSIM800.h>
??

Maybe you have an old version of the library?

// Select your modem:
#define TINY_GSM_MODEM_SIM800

Pete.

i double checked that,
TinyGSM version 0.7.9
Blynk version 0.6.1
as per Arduino IDE

I suspect that you are using an old code example then.
If you take a peek inside BlynkSimpleSIM800.h you’ll see that it says:

#warning "BlynkSimpleSIM800.h is deprecated. Please use BlynkSimpleTinyGSM.h"

If you look at the code example I linked to above, it uses:

#include <TinyGsmClient.h>
#include <BlynkSimpleTinyGSM.h>

Pete.

well, I’ve tried all those suggestions and here is what I’ve found using the TinyGSM library
From my Examples listed in the Arduino IDE, I’ve loaded the “AT_Debug” program (which sends inquiries to the modem at declining baud rates to determine what rate is its default).
The hardware connected is Mega using Serial 1 for RX/TX to the modem.
I have both a SIM800L and SIM5320A for testing and verification.
If I select #define TINY_GSM_MODEM_SIM800 with the 800L connected, I get successful connection!
If I select #define TINY_GSM_MODEM_SIM5360 with 5320A connected ( with the exact same hardware connections) I do not get any connection.

If I connect directly to the 5320 and use Putty terminal, I can connect and verify the module.
If I load a simple serial monitor in my Mega, I can communicate to the 5320A…

Then I tried something simple, I changed the name from:
#define TINY_GSM_MODEM_SIM5360
to
#define TINY_GSM_MODEM_SIM5320

and it worked! So for anyone else out there that wants to use this modem, you just have to change the name!! who would have thought it was that easy and quick!!
