Terminal Screen - Is this a Problem?

3 year old 3DR Y6 kit with APM2.6, two crashes in that time, but cannot seem to get it back to stable.  I noticed that in terminal mode, after connect, it displays "ublox" then garbage keeps being displayed.  Not sure if the GPS/Compass took the brunt of both crashes, or what.  In flight it tends to roll left.  I am starting at the beginning (re-flash firmware to 3.2.1), calibrate, etc.

Does anyone know from the photo perhaps the culprit on the garbage it keeps reading out?

  • That is normal. Terminal was removed after 3.1.5.

    Make sure in the terminal window you have APM selected, not Pixhawk.

    • Yup, tried it again being sure it was APM, and the garbage keeps coming.  Thanks.

        Hmm you made sure you weren't connected over mavlink first, right?  It needs to be disconnected and cycle power before you hit it up with the terminal.

        • Broke for lunch, disconnected the copter.  After I saw your reply, connected the copter to the laptop, went straight to Terminal, and connected.  More of the same stuff.

          Thanks, Nelson
