This GPS module is well known amongst the community and is often used with the ArduCopter gear. At the core is a U-blox Neo-6 GPS receiver which has advanced power management and anti-jamming technology. The module takes care of all the hardware requirements leaving only 4 connections to your micro/external application (Vcc RX TX Gnd).

Features:

  • Standalone GPS receiver
  • 9600 baud (default setting; can be changed)
  • 3.3V Device
  • TTL IOs; (FYI, the TX 3.3V 'high' state will be sufficient to drive normal 5V microcontroller TTL inputs without additional hardware)
  • Onboard LED which flashes to indicate lock
  • U-blox NEO-6M GPS module
  • Under 1 second time-to-first-fix for hot and aided starts
  • Indoor GPS: -162 dBm tracking sensitivity
  • Anti-jamming technology
  • Support SBAS (WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, GAGAN)
  • U-blox 6 50 channel positioning engine with over 2 million effective correlators
  • Timepulse
  • 5Hz position update rate
  • Operating temperature range: -40 TO 85°C
  • UART TTL socket
  • EEprom to store settings

You don't need to be a copter-expert to use this device! Just power it up and within a few moments you will have continuous GPS data being sent from the TX on the module.

    Could not get this to work. Used it with Arduino Uno on Arduino IDE and the serial monitor said to check wiring.

    Desoldered and resoldered it and tried again. I've checked with a multimeter and it's definitely getting a voltage, but the unit just doesn't seem to power up. (Posted on 11/09/2017)

    Great reliable and easy to use product that is excellent value for money. Note that you can change the configuration of this chip for operational mode, different baud rates (up to 115200 from the default of 9600) and to select which NEMA messages are transmitted. Great for lowering the processing overheads by speeding things up and cutting out what you don't need. (Posted on 20/04/2017)

    This unit has everything you need to get started with GPS navigation. It is easy to interface to with just two power and two communications pins. You can also easily use the U-blox U-Centre software to setup and change parameters on the board. Overall a great little unit. (Posted on 24/01/2015)
