3DR GPS uBlox LEA-6

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!

  • 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 ?

    Thanks much,


  • Dear Silvio

    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

    AC is night and day better with the new UBlox chipset. The MTEK has a firmware fix, but it's still not as nice.
