Can this GPS be used with a CC3D?

Has anyone used this GPS on a Naze32 Funfly board, if so, how did it go and what are your settings?
 friesianflyer 18 points
I am using mine with a Naze32, and in GPS hold, it will hold with a 2.5m square..... I haven't tried RTH yet... The GPS comes with a baud rate of 38400/5Hz claimed on the packaging..... I plugged mine into u-center (the free configuring software from u-blox) and it was actually set to 4Hz.....? I changed the baud rate to 115200, and the rate to 5 Hz using u-center..... In the baseflight software, in the CLI page, set gps baudrate=1, and gps type=0, connect the 5V and ground to a spare channel on the naze output pins, and the other two wires to pins 3 and 4 on the side of the naze (Tx from GPS goes to Rx on Naze and vice versa)

Thanks Fries, I can live with a 2.5m square, I think I'll get this one, and thanks for the settings as well.

I am using an APM2.5.2 so I expected the GPS to work correctly as configured from the factory. On power up red light is solid then goes to flashing after a few minutes. On APM blue light flashes for a few seconds then only red light shows lock out double flash.

 icevtec 84 points
I doubt it, just make sure, there is no metal or carbon there. Resin, foam, etc, should be fine.

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.
