Remzibi's OSD now shows ArduPilot data

Remzibi has released a new version of his firmware today. V1.60 includes an early version of his new messaging system that can be used for lots of other applications as well as ArduPilot.

I use the NMEA GPS that ships with Remzibi's OSD (it costs about $35).

Hello i have just now buy from DIY Store and i have made a request to if possible they load the firmware V1.60 in order to work with the Ardupilot because i´m not sure if a can do this! But My question is if the V1.60 is the most recent firmware?

No, 1.68. It comes with a USB cable so you can program it yourself. You can always keep the firmware up to date.

Well i have try to put this all together like in the scheme above but i still dont have a GPS lock on the Ardupilot! Please see the picture and see if i´m doing something not correct!

I too have never gotten GPS lock with the ArduShield in place. I can get a GPS lock without it.

I'm not sure that the current ArduPilot code supports the Remzibi GPS. Have you tried using a separate GPS module for ArduPilot? My understanding is that the Remzibi GPS antenna is not large enough for reliable autopilot use.

Ideally, the Remzibi OSD would use the ArduPilot GPS, rather than the other way around. I know we've been planning to integrate these two better, but it hasn't been as high priority as some other tasks.
