UBLOX LEA-6H GPS Module w/Built-in Antenna 2.5m Accuracy

UBLOX LEA-6H GPS Module w/Built-in Antenna 2.5m Accuracy
UBLOX LEA-6H GPS Module w/Built-in Antenna 2.5m Accuracy

This GPS module integrates an LEA-6H GPS receiver with a 25x25x4mm ceramic patch antenna, UART serial interface, and USB. The high performance of the u-blox LEA-6H positioning engine enables navigation even in weak signal environments.

Recommended for multicopters in particular, where GPS accuracy is very important. It has active circuitry for the ceramic patch antenna and a backup battery for warm starts. These units will ship pre-configured for ArduPilot Mega use, and the configuration file is available in the Google repository.

This module features a USB V2.0 compatible serial port for power supply and data transfer.

Features:
• Micro USB on board
• ublox LEA-6H module
• 5Hz update rate
• High precision 2.5m accuracy
• 25x25x4mm ceramic patch antenna
• Enhanced powersave mode: lower power consumption based on intelligent power management
• SuperSense® Indoor GPS: -160 dBm Tracking Sensitivity
• LNA and SAW filter
• 3V lithium backup battery
• Low noise 3.3V regulator
• Power and fix indicator LEDs
• ArduPilot Mega compatible 6-pin JST connector
• Exposed RX, TX, 5V and GND pad

Note: This module ships with a buad rate of 38400, 5Hz

Yes, it's GPS only so you need other model or external magnetometer.

If I have an APM 2.5 and this GPS module, do I also need a compass to do autonomous flight?
 trobi81 95 points
Hi, APM 2.5 has the compass built in to the flight control board. Just add this GPS and you're ready to fly missions. The other option you have is purchasing the latest GPS module from 3D Robotics that has the compass and GPS in one unit. This allows for more accurate navigation (as long as you move the GPS/Compass as far away from electronics as possible). Try and keep any transmitting devices far away too (like video transmitter, telemetry...). I hope this helps.

Will this work with an APM 2.0 board? I need an external GPS b/c the onboard one give approx 400 feet of variation.

Hi! Would this GPS module adapt to my IDEAL FLY Quad copter(not use yet). Unfortunatly being an (Old Dog) I don't understand any of the discutions below. When i bought it from HK there was a note saying GPS was going to be available. Can anyone help. Georges

I just received my module. The antenna is fixed wrong position. ( see files) I check functionality with u-center software. I got 8 satellities in 2-3 second each time. but accuracy is not as good as 2.5 m as now. I see more than 5 mm in deviation map at u-center software.

I´m very unimpressed about the GPS. First I connect the GPS to the USB port, an it seems to work fine. Next I try to connect to the CRIUS board, but it seems the GPS get no power. I tryed different way´s, also to power the GPS from the 5V Pins from the ESC pin´s but the GPS get no power. After this I measured the 5V input to the ground on the upside of the board, and it looks like, there is no connection from the 5V to the board. So now I will try to get 5V over the USB port and the signal over the SMD and hope this will work. But that could not be the right way it should work :-(

Again another poorly matched peace of gea from hk. a hextronick gps that does not plug into a hextronick flight board recommended by hobby-king to match. 1. does not plug in as connectors are different sizes 2. cant solder it as power pins don't go anywhere on the board. why supply grnd and 5v pads on a board if they not in the actual circuit. And again no manual on how to work around this stupidity can be found anywhere - that the T hack does not work for peoples info.. Plus this was the board I purchased but mine look different! only way is to power vir usp at 3v - how stupid.

This thing locks in almost right away. I'm very happy with the speed of finding sats, even in side my house I've got about a 10 m accuracy! Very Happy!

Good GPS module. Nice to see HK stocking more parts for the ArduPilot 2.5 clone. Speed and ultrasound sensors next please.
