Hi all,

 

I have been playing around with the MediaTek GPS module/interface board and several of my Ardupilot board equipped with both versions of the Ardupilot Shield.

 

I have found that the Ardupilots equipped with the V2 Shield will consistently get a lock when used with the MediaTek GPS modules. However  the Ardupilots equipped with the V1 Shields will not show a lock even when the MediaTek GPS module is showing a lock!

 

I have had the Ardupilots equipped with the V1 Shields get a lock when used with the EM406 GPS.

 

Has any other member experienced this phenomenon?

 

Regards,

TCIII

The V1 shield was retired long ago and is no longer supported. I don't even have one to test anymore :-(

@Chris,

 

Thanks for the response. No problem Chris! I have decided to retire my V1 Shields where they are being used with the MediaTek GPS module. However, I still have a few EM406s that will work with the V1s.

 

Regards,
