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.'

Works like everyone said it would! August 12, 2017
Reviewer: Justin K. from Topock, AZ United States  
I used to get about 11 satellites in 45-60 seconds. Now I get 21 before the controller is done booting up. I also added the 3DR RF absorbing mat at the same time. mRo says to replace the copper shielding with the mat (not add to it) for best results. Thanks mRo!

Great Fit, Plug-n-Play May 2, 2017
Reviewer: Maxheadspace from Virginia, USA  
I use generic neo-M8N GPS on all my DIY drones, so I'm already sold on the M8N module.  What I like about the mRo module is that it is really a plug and play installation on the Solo.  I recommend getting the 3DR Solo GPS Shield Replacement that you can buy from the 3DR site.  Together they make a perfect pair, very clean installation.  I'm going to buy another for my second Solo.
