Disabling GPS on daughterboard



Is there any way to disable the GPS on the daughterboard(without desoldering or changing the daughterboard), and still connect an external GPS and have APM 2.0 use that instead?

  • Does anyone have any details on this?

  • Thanks for the question. I hotly on here to ask the same question.
    I want to take apm2 off my aud and put it in a Bicler with the camera chassis and need to get the gos external. I am hopeless with the soldering iron so I hope it's a simple process 
  • Wow ok thanks!
  • Yes there is a way, I have done that to my APM2s. I wanted to leave the Doughter board in place for the Mag and disable the MTK. I found it was easy to cut a GPS TX trace on the board and that would disable that GPS so I could plug in a remote GPS to the port on the main board. This mod is prety easy and if you want to go back to the original you just solder a bridge on the trace. I dont have the unit with me at the moment but when I get home I will take a pic of my mod and you can see if it is somthing you would like to do.
