    Hi everyone
    My plane crashed the other day and now the GPS doesn't seem to work. I checked the wiring and all seems to be ok.
    I have a ublox neo-m8n gps with compass which I can take out from a multi rotor I am no longer using but just want to check if anyone has tried using a different GPS for their RVOSD succesfully? especially Ublox.

    Thanks guys

    Did you solve the problem. Can I use another GPS for the RVOSD G6 like Ublox M8N???

    The M8N does work on the very latest firmware for RVOSD G6.

    Alex, is there any way to use some new GPS module (with Glonass/Galileo support) with RVOSD v5? When I see how fast some other systems with GPS gets lock compared to mine I'm a little jealous... :)

    You can use any gps with UART output, as long as it is configured to be: 115200, 8N1, GGA, GSV, RMC. And works at 10Hz.

    Hi Alex, the 10Hz is "a must"? Ublox can only read GPS @ 10Hz. With 5Hz it can work with GPS and GNONASS and with 1Hz with all systems (GPS+GLONASS+EGNOS...). So change to Ublox will not help to gather more satellites or lock faster @10Hz... :(
