Altitude Error


Im using a mediatek gps GTPA010 along with APM. After flying i have looked at my logs and noticed the altitude is reading 1992 meters +. Im only 225 meters asl and im not flying higher than 100 meters. Anyone have any idea why my altitude is being reported so high? Just purchased the equipment in February.

  • Hi , same problem with mediatek along with AP 2.7.1, solved changing: ARDUIMU.PDE > OUTPUT > line 147 from :
    "tempinit=GPS.altitude /100" to "tempinit=GPS.altitude /10" now altitude is ok , both navigation and GCS.
    (hope this help)
