Newer revision!
We added a micro USB port that enables you to access all u-Blox features via u-Center and power the device. Please refer to this document if you have driver issues. We also added the latest Taoglas Antenna tuned for GPS + GLONASS, which provides a higher gain compared to any of its predecessors (from 1.5dBi to 5dBi).

The mRo GPS NEO-M8N is a professional grade, notably robust GPS system capable of using USA (GPS), Russian (GLONASS) and European (Galileo) constellations at the same time. You can optionally enable the Chinese (Bai Du) constellation in exchange of disabling GLONASS.
This solution will provide you with an astonishingly accurate position and fast satellite acquisition. Our testing in SOLO gave us an average HDOP of '0.6', which is considered ideal conditions. Also, we were able to fix 20 satellites out of the box and with no shield (Clear sky conditions, shielding not needed but recommended).

uBlox helped us with the inspection of this board; we followed all its recommendations, plus, we added our own criteria to make sure we are providing you with a superb module.
This release does not include cables; we expect you to use the same GPS cable included in your SOLO. This unit can be used in other products as well by using our special adapters indicated at the beginning of the text.
This revision also features an "extended" hole that allows symmetrical placement of the 4x screw set, without removing SOLO compatibility (which has asymmetrical screw separation).

You can read more about all its features on the official u-Blox web page here. Remember we are using NEO-M8N-01, 'Professional grade.'

20 Satellites August 15, 2018
Reviewer: Jeff McAlpin from Nashville , TN United States  
This product is terrible...  I’m just kidding. I received my gps upgrade for my 3dr solo today. It took roughly 20 minutes to install. After I got everything put back together I turned the solo on in my living room on the coffee table. The solo took about 2 minutes to pull 7 satellites. Like everyone else I after I rebooted the solo I got roughly 12 satellites within in 45 seconds. After flying outside for about 15 minutes I ended with 20 satellites.
If you own a drone you must have this product. Very pleased.

Outstanding Upgrade August 1, 2018
Reviewer: Gary Grandovic from Boca Raton, FL United States  
So I have version A in my 3dr Solo.  I would get 8, maybe 10 locked satellites.  Nice enough to fly around for my hobby use. I live in Florida so no real interference around as everything is flat and near the ocean most of time.

The upgrade was really easy.  Took under 10 minutes to swap it out.

After upgrade, went outside and powered up.  UNBELIEVABLE... 21 locked satellites.  Wow!!!

Hoovered solid in place.  Did a return home function and come right back to takeoff spot.  Should have done this sooner.

Thanks for a great product.

MRO gps module July 18, 2018
Reviewer: Willard Guy from Fredericksburg, VA United States  
I was getting 8 sats now I'm getting 15 sats and flus so much better. Biggest difference for me is startup time and much more stable. Full stick down no prop wash and smooth!

Undeniably Superior. June 13, 2018
Reviewer: Sam Bukowski from Milwaukee, WI United States  
I literally got this little GPS today and flew it and it is truly an astonishing improvment on the stock rev-b gps in the solo. Without a doubt the best 50$ you could ever spend on this drone. I would have never EVER even ATTEMPTED to have flown my drone in my back yard and today I took off and landed 3 times without a hitch each time never dropping below 15 satallites while landing or taking off and always having 21+ omce in the air. I feel way safer flying my drone which is good because its never nice to be stressed out when trying to enjoy a hobby. Felt I owed it to m-Ro to express how pleased o have been with the entire expierence from reliable ordering to seamless install to flawless performence. If you have a 3dr solo you absolutely 100% need this gps.
