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.'

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.

Absolutely amazing. April 8, 2018
Reviewer: Jeffrey White from Spokane Valley, WA United States  
Put this into a rock stock solo 3dr and I am AMAZED at how well it performed. Before I could even connect Wi-Fi to my phone I had 10 satellites. Within a few minutes I had 21, the most I saw with my stock revision a GPS was 14.
Outstanding job gentleman!

Solo upgraded gps February 14, 2018
Reviewer: B. from Milwaukee, WI United States  
I decided to do a back to back test to see the difference between the two units. I kept the uav in the same spot for both test and didn't move it in anyway. With the stock gps it took 6 minutes to get 9  satellites. When I first installed the new unit it didn't get any satellites at all, so I powered down the uav and and powered up and had 6 satellites in 30 seconds, with 12 in 3 minutes.  These tests were done on the the second floor indoors, the stock gps said I was at 0 feet elevation. This new unit was telling me I was at 18 feet which is correct but didn't think it would show that difference. Flight is a lot more stable hovering in one spot, overall a must have to get the most out of the flight platform.
