NEO-6M GPS Module

NEO-6M GPS Module
NEO-6M GPS Module

This is an updated GPS module that can used with ardupilot mega v2. This GPS module uses the latest technology to give the best possible position information, allowing for better performance with your Ardupilot or other Multirotor control platform.

You may require to configure this module for use with your flight controller (MultiWii Copter I2C GPS board requires 115200 baud). You will require a USB to FTDI adaptor board to do this.

Please note that this module ships with defualt settings and a buad rate of 38400.

What flight controller would you recommend?
 v_max 4972 points
This GPS do not have compass chip... So you can use it with multiwii or with any APM controller with ONBOARD compass. For Multiwii to use GPS you need Atmega2560 based board.. Cheap mwi boards on Atmega328 or 32U couldn't use GPS. "Multiwii and Megapirate AIO Flight Controller w/FTDI (ATmega 2560) V2.0" is not bad choice if you are not sure which firmware you would prefer.. This controller can run Multiwii firmware as well as MegapirateNG firmware which is ported APM Arducopter for cheaper platform....

But for current moment, anyway I'd not recommend THIS gps... it's not bad functionaly, but it's large and heavy due to thick ceramic antenna.... My personal choice is MiniAPM 3.1 fc board and MiniApm GPS module... Not at HK... but at m y r c m a r t (remove spaces) I have 2 sets and it's amazing small and lightweight full featured APM boards. HK offers very similar set as "Micro APM 2.7.2" ...You can get all parts separate controller , gps , osd , telemetry, power sensor... or get full set ("Micro HKPilot Mega Master Set With OSD, GPS, Telemetry Radio, PDB/BEC/Power Sensor (433Mhz) (APM)")
As minimum you need controller, gps and power module.... OSD and telemetry are optional.

will this work with cc3d?
 v_max 4972 points
it will work with any flight controller which support GPS.... All GPSes are just serial devices with standard NMEA protocol... all controllers which support GPS do it via serial port using standard NMEA protocol by default... All you need is connect it correctly and set FC baud rate for serial port same as baud rate of gps port... by default this GPS use 38400 baud. (defaults can be changes via ublox uCenter configuration utility)

Yes... will work perfectly... default baud rate is 38400. (set gps baud in config accordingly)

Hi all! I want to ask if anybody know how to change the protocol from UBX to NMEA? I'm using U-center v.8 for configuration, and Arduino mega 2560 for interface. I tryed to change the protocol on (PRT) section in "Protocol Out", but when i save configuration for permanent, i have no recieving any data from GPS. Thank you! P.S. Sorry, my english is not soo good :)

After changing protocol you need to reconnect gps. Second... what for you changing it? APM do not support UBLOX protocol if I remember right and it use standard NMEA ant 38400... Multiwii do autoconfig of protocol on startup so just change protocol to UBLOX in config.h and MWI will reprogramm GPS to use UBLOX while power-on sequence

Has anyone used this GPS with the HK mini GPS (prod ID#074000204)? Any issues with it? How long does it take to lock satellites using this combination?Thanks! VJ

Most GPS are generaly the same.. just serial device with standard NMEA gps protocol. UBLOX gpses support also binary UBLOX protocol which is more effective (less bytes transfer) but I doubt this protocol can be used with OSD you mentioned. By default this one use NMEA at 34800 baudrate. Sat lock time do not depends on something else... GPS start time is unpredictable as it depends from too many factors.. First and more important is CLEAR sky around, no buildings or other things which give reflections of GPS signal around, weather (clouds, dust, humidity) and sure number of sattelites in your clear visibly sky hemisphere at the current moment (vary in time )... Typicaly 'cold' gps start takes 1-10minutes... Hot start 10-60 sec.. Note that this time depends on how long ago it got fix previous time.. Build in battery can store sat almanach data for few hours only... so if it was off for more then it will be cold start...

Works fine. Came setup w/ 38400baud,5Hz, NMEA. Set mine to binary UBX with U-center using 3DR-Ublox.txt. Runs fine with MegaPirateNG2.8r3. Hotstart fix < 2seconds. Good value for it´s price.

I got mine and was excited about it. Installed it on Multwii AIO-2560 and defined UBLOX and buad-rate 57600. The power LED stayed on for few minutes and I got a Blinking Red LED (GPS LOCK on the NEO - Wow, the damn thing works - in Sydney Australia) and FC yellow LED started blinking a sequence, and I was indoors. After a power down and following days, I have been unable to get a GPS Lock. I have done absolutely nothing to it, just a simple cycle down. I have tried it outside and still nothing.....Just steady Red LED. Very unreliable.
