HELP - Dead 3dR GPS LEA6 V1.1


Re-building after a crash, I realized my 3dR GPS LEA6 V1.1 is

short-cutting power on my APM 2.0 board.

I am no electronics wiz, but

when GPS is disconnected - APM powers up OK

when GPS is connected -     APM is "dead"

so I can assume GPS is the reason.

Same story when powering from USB or the LiPo.

This is the heart of my Octo - What do I do now?

Do 3DR still stock carry this GPS model? - I couldn't find it

Help needed.

    Check GPS connector for bent pins. Shorting the power when cable is installed?
