I recently soldered some header pins to my GY-NEO6MV2 GPS Module. With a regular volt meter I measured that all pins were not connected and after connecting the 5V and GND a led starts blinking on the LED.
However, when I tried uploading the testing code provided with the TinyGPS library( the GPS module does not seem to respond to any of serial communication.
Did I fry my GPS by soldering? Is there a way I can diagnose this?

Any general tips for a starting Arduino enthusiast are always welcome!
