We met at AUVSI this year and I described a problem I was having with the ublox Gps is not getting power from the px4FMU. I did some troubleshooting with 2 ver 1.7 boards and a ver 1.6 board. Gps and cable work fine on the ver 1.6 board but not the 1.7 boards. I checked the voltage on the 1.7 and it is 0 volts. I am using USB power. Any clue what's the problem?

Thx
Charlie
