Hi Paul, following the previous message, a more detailed explanation:

I have two Ublox M8N gps units and did this configuration ( to get them working with arducopter autopilot software. However after changing their configuration to the one listed on that website, my quadcopter now behaves very badly when using the gps.
I've tried then to revert their configurations to default (using the ublox ucenter software) and their values changed to defaults indeed, however they still wont work fine ( I mean, I get good sat count and low hdop but the quadcopter trys to flyaway). But if I try with another  gps module (same model M8N) but one that I did not change configuration, the quadcopter works fine.
So something along the configuration messed the gps units and the 'revert to defaults' is not working 100% fine. Can you help me fix this two units ?
