GPS connection problem

Post by melomel » Wed Apr 24, 2019 8:04 am

Hi there. I'm newbie about crazyflie and I would like to connect a gps module to it. I made a connection by using TX and RX pins but I cannot manage to get a data from gps module. What do I have to do to get a data from gps module? By the way I'm using ublox 7m Neo.

As there is only experimental code using GPS can you share how you connect it and how you interface it?

At first, I connected gps module to bigquad deck's gps port and then I added gps tab to crazyflie client's plotter but I didn't see any data in there. And then I connected gps module directly to crazyflie's rx1 and tx1 pins but I get nothing again.

I try to find a solution with respect to this link https://www.bitcraze.io/2014/03/crazyfl ... s-round-2/ But I cannot manage to get a data from gps module.

It'll be nice for me to learn what kind of changes needed in firmware or in hardware to get a gps data.
