This new design incorporates the HMC5883L digital compass, providing a convenient method of mounting the compass away from sources of interference that may be present in the confines of the vehicle. This is our best GPS module, significantly outperforming the Mediatek GPS due to the larger antenna and next-gen chipset. An excellent solution for multicopters and rovers in particular, where GPS accuracy is paramount. It features active circuitry for the ceramic patch antenna, rechargeable backup battery for warm starts, and I2C EEPROM for configuration storage. The units ship pre-configured for use with 3DR APM 2.6 autopilot; the configuration file is available in the repository.

Includes:

  • GPS with Compass module
  • Protective case
  • Four-position cable (compass)
  • Five-position-to-six-position cable (GPS) for APM or PX4

Pixhawk users will find a six-position cable included with the Pixhawk kit to connect the GPS with Compass module to Pixhawk. If you need a second cable to connect the GPS with Compass to Pixhawk, please add the six-position cable here to your order.

Options: Add a GPS mast to improve the performance of the GPS with compass module. Documentation and User Guides
