Thanks, I guess I assumed that the expansion board was just the drivers for an onboard serial port. Next time, I'll look at the schematics as well, since the WiPy docs said that there wasn't any driver needed for use. It's all working, now I can geek out having combined my two favorite worlds... embedded systems and Python!
Firstly I would like to thank you for your feedback. We always welcome constructive feedback and we will working on overhauling the getting started guide very soon soon. We certainly need to provide better information regarding the antennas in the getting started guide. The URL the package points to is just a heading chapter, you can then use the arrows to navigate to the next page. I admit this isn't very intuitive, this will be improved in our overhaul.To directly answer your queries:
The long black antenna is for LoRa/Sigfox, the flat antenna with four fingers is for the cellular radio and you do not require to use a wifi antenna because the module has a on-board chip antenna (the beige coloured block on the bottom of the module). The pinout which can be found here: https://docs.pycom.io/chapter/datasheets/development/fipy.html details which connector is which.
A guide on how to connect the module to a Expansion board, pysense or pytrack can be found here: https://docs.pycom.io/chapter/gettingstarted/unboxing.html#first
There are two tabs which take you through the process step by step including a link to a guide on how to update the pytrack/pysense firmware. (this is not the same as the modules firmware).
Connect to your board's AP (you can find that here in the WiFi tab). Set 192.168.4.1 as the address in pymkar.conf in Atom or VSCode and press Connect
Connect the board to an existing WiFi network (requires you to upload code to the board first) then get the IP of the device. Set as address in pymakr.conf and connect.
