Yesterday i got my LEA-6 GPS module and made a short comparison.
I Placed my Copter outside on the street and wait 2-3 mins to get a good GPS Signal and then I running a track on the street with my copter over my head. First with Mediatek and after with the new LEA-6.
Surprise! the LEA-6 are mutch better! I Got the GPS Fix under 30sec, got GPS in my House... and the now the Loiter works mutch better!
AC is night and day better with the new UBlox chipset. The MTEK has a firmware fix, but it's still not as nice.
Is there any driver to be installed for UBLOX LEA-6? I have pluged my LEA-6 to my APM 2.5, but it shows no signal.
there is a very tiny red LED on the back. Should I change the back up battery or add some driver?
Thanks for help
No Driver needed. Did you disable the existing GPS (if you are using 2.0?)
I also saw similar results yesterday. The LEA-6 is a great upgrade for APM 2.0 users. I was very impressed with RTL and autoland. Much smoother than the MediaTek.
When I purchased my Ardupilot, I chose UBLOX, so it came directly with it. But, do you think still I should disable another GPS on the board?
No... if you bought 2.5 with UBlox then you should be good with no disabling or drivers needed.
Sorry I missed your comment that you already have 2.5.
Why do you think you dont have a signal.. are you looking at it inside from the mission planner and getting "NO GPS FIX" or not getting a blue GPS lock light while outside? If you are getting the No GPS FIX message its working you just need to get it to open sky.
Actually I took it to street. I don' t get neither of them.(No signal on MissionPlanner and no blue LED). I was waiting for 10 minutes, but no signal.
I'm at a loss here. I have tried ever way to search for this and can not find any info.
I have a APM2 with built in mtech gps. I want to replace it with a ublox, is there any information on the forums explaining if this can be done and how ?
NM I need to read above .........
