APM 2.5 + CN06 PLUS no GPS Lock.

HI i have an apm 2.5 paired with a CN06 PLUS gps module (with external compass). I am using the internal compass and the GPS Fix led just blinks. I do get a solid fix for 10 seconds after switching on and then starts blinking. Do you have any idea what may be causing this. Is my GPS incompatible?my current setup is a 6wd  skid steer bot and a non 3dr power module. ThanksSee More

"Hi.  The parameter CRUISE_SPEED sets the autonomous speed of the rover.  This can be set in 0.1m/s increments so the slowest the rover can move is 0.1m/s assuming your Rover can go that slow.    This is about…"

Minimal speed for Ardu Pilot mega 2.5

Hie all i was wondering what the slowest speed a rover can be set to for navigation? I have a new platform that is meant to go about 4-5km/h (2.5-3.1 mph). would that be too slow for following gpswaypoints or does speed not matter as much?Thanks in advanceMy setup would be -6wd robot (5mph top speed)-APM 2.5-Turnigy 9x remoteSee More

"HI, as far as I know you only need 1 waypoint. I's a good idea to test and diagnose on a bigger area, and don't go on a tarmac - I found that my thumper's traction were wearing badly on the motors whilst trying to tune. Stay on grass…"

"I like your idea of running it for a time manually before putting it in auto mode. I will try that and see if it solves my problem. Do you know what is the minimum amount of waypoints i can run? I currently have 2 waypoints, spaced at about 11-13m…"
