I would like to use my SkyLab skm53 gps (based on MediaTek 3329 http://competefornothing.com/?p=113) with my ArduIMU V3. I am able to connect the gps to ftdi directly to read (and upgrade firmware) its values on PC. Its working and i can get position fix with that.
However, connecting the gps to ArduIMU to ftdi and using utility ArduIMU Test, I don't have any gps data! Tried updating the firmware with the bin included "MTK_DIYdrones" (http://code.google.com/p/ardupilot/downloads/detail?name=MTK_DIYdro...) but still no data. Tried changing GPS_PROTOCOL between 1&4 without success.
I think it may not work while FTDI is connected, since it is using RX/TX, is that correct ?
Please help me, am really stuck with this.
this is actually the same problem but they say that only ublox is supported with Ardu imu v3
