GPS & Compass Module M8Q-5883

Ublox SAM-M8Q GPS, GLONASS, Galileo receiver with antenna. Compass QMC5883L integrated.

Features

  • 72-channel u-blox M8 engine GPS L1C/A, SBAS L1C/A, QZSS L1C/A, QZSS L1 SAIF, GLONASS L1OF, Galileo E1B/C
  • On-board Ultra low noise 3.3V voltage regulator and RF filter for noise blocking
  • Features an additional front-end LNA for optimized performance and a front-end SAW filter for increased jamming immunity
  • Build-in embedded GNSS patch antenna, low power consumption
  • The 15 x 15 mm patch antenna provides the best compromise between the performance of a Right Hand Circular Polarized (RHCP) antenna and a small size to be integrated in any design.

Tips

  • GPS, GLONASS, SBAS, QZSS are enabled by default
  • Blue PPS LED blinking(1Hz) means 3D fixed
  • update rate 1Hz & baudrate 9600 default
  • Baud 9600~115200 supported by INAV/BF/Ardupilot
  • update rate 5Hz with INAV UBLOX Protocol
  • update rate 10Hz with INAV UBLOX7 Protocol
  • Compass Alignment(Arrow forward):
    INAV/BF: CW 270° Flip
    Ardupilot/Mission Planner: Rotation None
  • BF doesn’t support GPS position hold and RTH,  GPS Rescue mode is supported by BF3.5 or last.
  • No need compass for Fixed wings with INAV firmware
  • The scratches on ceramic antenna are the result of tuning the antenna by ublox.
