  • Board have magnetometer HMC5983 and antenna

  • We make new version for RTK systems with high SNR


  • The only way I can get it to connect is to hook up the PixHawk to Mission planner which open the com 3 port,  I can then connect on the com 3 port.

    But as has been mentioned before I am not sure that some of the setting that might be modified stay modified after the Pixhawk reboots and configures the Neo the way it wants to.

  • Sorry, I meant to get that pic for you, but it is just in the settings pages not to hard to find. I'll see if I can do it later.
    I noticed last time I connected to UCenter that SBAS was again enabled, I guess the GPS unit has been automatically reset by APM. Well, even in bad weather I still get enough sats and satisfactory HDOP. If it ain't broke... I won't insist.

  • have you tried autobaud

  • I an having trouble getting my CSG M8N to connect to u-center.  Have reinstalled with the usb driver several times without making progress.

    I am only getting a com 1 port showing and it will not connect and light up the green at the bottom. 

    The usb lights up the M8N but my pc does not sound off like there is a connection.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    CGS, we need a M8N GPS+compass version with a 7cm wide antenna (like what drotek does). Can you please propose such product? Because your current antennas are suboptimal. Thx

  • @ Peter Webster

    can you share a picture of your CFG-GNSS config (on ublox ucenter) , please ?

  • An update to my settings list reposted above, after reading the APM failsafe wikis I've disabled SBAS. No apparent operational change resulkted, still 12-14 sats and HDOP below 2, easily and quickly attained.
