is this compatible with the KK 2.1 board???

KK 2.1 does not support GPS, so it is not compatible with KK2.1

Now that I'm past the first step (powered up and with flashing light presumably indicating satellite lock), I'm having trouble communicating with it. I tried some more advanced GPS library examples for Arduino, but now I'm stepping back and trying to debug. According to the datasheet and cfg pin setup on the board, the UART should be communicating with 9600 baud. Unfortunately I seem to be getting garbage over the serial connection. Is there some initial configuration required that I'm missing? Seems like the defaults should be fine. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Greg, thanks for you credit. Mine GPS communicate with my HK AIO Megapirate with 38400 baud rate, as this is the default rate stated in the description. Hope this helps you a bit.

Would that work on fy dos. The output voltage is 5volt. They dont specify the voltage range here
 georgiev.s 408 points
The Ublox GPS itself is operating on 3.3V. But there is also a voltage regulator on the HK Board, so I use it with my HK MegaPirate AIO with 5V power supply.

My unit didn't come with any documentation at all. Was it supposed to? Is there anywhere I can find any info about this board? I do have the datasheet for the neo-6m, so I have most relevant info. What does the light mean, though?
 georgiev.s 408 points
There is no documentation with it. Look under the "files tab" (in purple) under the product description, there are few manuals. The light mean in principle, it is powered on :) If I or anyone here helped you, click best answer.

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.
