Description
 
[Designed & Assembled in California]

Featuring the latest Taoglas Antenna tuned for GPS + GLONASS, which provides a higher gain compared to any of its predecessors (from 1.5dBi to 5dBi) and dual Compass, the LIS3MDL by ST and the IST8310 by iSentek which is based on the legendary HMC5983 technology and is licensed by Honeywell. The IST8310 is temperature compensated.

A microUSB port 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.

Important 1: LIS3MDL and IST8310 are currently not supported by ArduPilot. A request has been made and we are expecting to see full support in the next release (Just in time before the retired HMC5983 run out completely). Please refer to this document to verify whether your compass is already supported.

Important 2: HMC5983 and the IST8310 are pin compatible (Either one is placed on the board but not both). There is a 3rd option, QMC5883L, that we might support later. If you need help identifying which version you have, please refer to this document.

Background:

The mRo GPS NEO-M8N is a professional grade, robust GPS system capable of sensing 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 might change in the future by incoming firmware updates).
This solution will provide you with an astonishingly accurate position and fast satellite acquisition. Our testing reported an average HDOP of '0.6', which is awesome.

uBlox engineers collaborated with us on the layout of this board. All their recommendations as well as our own experience have been incorporated to deliver to you our best GPS module ever.

This module has the DroneCode standard GPS 6-Pins JST-GH connector defined here. We also include an auxiliary i2c port for future expansion using JST-GH connector standard and a status -pink- LED.

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.'
