Hi, Please can anyone help, I can not get this to fix on any sats in u-centre 8.12 inside or outside, but the Red led is flashing every second. Does this mean the unit is working and Im doing something wrong ? I have managed to update the I2c and Multiwii boards, so this little unit is holding me back, Desperate to get it working. Cheers a.

If physical connection is ok then this only means that your GPS configured baud/protocol settings didn't match ucenter connection baud/protocol settigs. MWI with UBLOX setting in config do autonfig of this GPS to UBLOX binary protocol at 57600 .. so after trying with MWI your settings was changed. On 'reverting' ucenter sends change settings command (to some certain state) at all possible baudrates untill it found matching one. So it reconfigured gps back. After this connection restored.

Hi, Ive connected this gps to my naze32 rev 5. Vcc and gnd to an open esc port. Rxd from gps to port3, and txd to port 4 on my naze. The baudrate is set on 384kbps, and gps type to 1 But I cant get a green box around gps on top of the baseflight. Anyone who knows what Im doing wrong?

If you are sure you setup all correctly then .... GPS do not work indoors...Go outdoors with clear sky above. GPS 'cold' start requires around 1-5 minutes sometimes more.. depends on rf noise around, number of sattelites in the direct view of the sky, humidity and so on... So be patient... When GPS will get fix gps led will start blink lazyly (aroud once per sec).. This means GPS has fix and send data. If at this time you wouldn't get fix in FC then you have something wrong with connection or config. By default this gps is configured as 38400 with NMEA protocol.

It does not matter which way it goes. Best to have the ariel on the top though.

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.
