GPS adapter to JST-GH (Used in PixRacer, PixHawk 2 and others) and the classic DF13 (Used in PixHawk, MindPX and other zillion clones out there).

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 testings 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.
The module also features an auxiliary i2c port for future expansion using JST-GH connector standard and a status -pink- LED. 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.'

WOW just WOW April 17, 2017
Reviewer: Joseph Robles from Levittown, NY United States  
Holy @!#$! everyone that reviewed the GPS upgrade module was not joking by how fast and how many sat's it picks up. I was only getting about 6 sat's and if I was lucky 9 and at times would lose GPS lock. With this upgrade I get 16-21 Sat's with 30-60 seconds. No Joke!! And yes it is much more stable in the air and holds a better position when it is hovering because of the sat's it sees. Anyway I am ordering another one for my second solo drone as well the cost alone is an excellent deal for this excellent must have upgrade TRUST ME. :)

An absolute must have upgrade. Outstanding! March 11, 2017
Reviewer: Dan from UK  
Just 5 days from order to receipt in the UK - well packaged and easy to track with the standard FedEx option. Just 15 minutes to fit (I also took the opportunity to fit the 3DR V2 shield).  I'm in northern Europe and went from waiting for 6 sats, to a very quick fix with 16 sats and HDOP reduced from 2.5 to 0.7. Whether you bought a Solo as an early adopter or in one of the ridiculously cheap recent sales, this module is well worth the cost for such a superb upgrade. It changes the way I think about Solo, with much more confidence in position and reliability of GPS fixing.  Looking forward to what mRobotics have in store for future products!

GPS Upgrade For 3DR Solo March 4, 2017
Reviewer: Gary Evans from Up State NY United States  
I am amazed at the difference this upgrade provides. This should have been OEM on an expensive quad copter. If you own the Solo, PLEASE, for your own good, purchase this unit. Thank God someone stepped up and is offering a repair for the extremely weak link 3DR sent into the airspace. Great job mRobotics!
