jDrones News: Upgraded MediaTEK 3329 GPS
Another exciting product update from us. Some people already have seen this new jDrones MediaTEK GPS. GPS is based on same GPS module as original DIYDrones GPS but it has some enhancements. Enhancements such as better groundplanes and optional backup battery board. Better groundplane enhances greatly to get 3D lock and also accuracy of GPS position.
If you need even more, groundplane can be easily expanded around board. Shape of the PCB allows you fasten it easier with for example cableties.
GPS is fully compatible with ArduPilot Mega and other boards.
With optional backup battery board, tested 3D lock times are average of 1-5 seconds. Without battery board, initial lock times on our tests have been around 20-50 seconds.
