ArduSimple

ArduSimple provides a number of UBlox F9P based GNSS receivers that support RTK and GPS-for-Yaw. Using RTK allows ArduPilot with centimeter level accuracy which is much more accurate than a normal GPS.

Wiring and Connections

All ArduSimple GNSS models come with a JST GH 6-pin connector/cable that is compatible with the Pixhawk family and many other autopilots.

Note

The cables/connectors may be modified to connect to other flight controller boards, using the Pin Map information provided above.

Configuration

For normal operation, ArduPilot’s GPS parameter defaults will work for any serial port configured for SERIALx_PROTOCOL = 5. For GPS-for-Yaw, please refer to GPS-for-Yaw

Note

ArduPilot does not currently configure UBlox F9P GPS constellations. User must assure that the GPS is properly configured for his region and application. See U-Blox F9P Firmware Update
