APM 2.8, Ublox M8N Compass Calibration Issue

Yes. I just learned my equipment are clones but I hoping someone out there can still help me out. I've tried just about everything to get my compass to calibrate, but no luck. 

So I have a APM 2.8. I have the Ublx M8N plugged in with the jumper removed. I'm pretty sure I have everything setup in Mission planner correctly. I've clicked every button spun my quad around in circles and everything else you can think of. 

Here's the link to my youtube channel that shows the issue. I'm guessing it'll be easier for you to just it and then ask questions.



Thanks in advanced for any help.

  • Hi Steve,

    The 2-wire connector (compass) needs to be connected to the port marked I2C
