  • Model: ARD_MEDIATEK_GPS_MT3329 (40863)
Description

This is the state-of-the-art MediaTek MT3329 GPS module with a 66 channels engine. This version has a new board layout with an improved ground plane and on-board battery. 

Small and versatile, this GPS module can be easily installed in your aicraft. Thanks to its high sensitivity, which is up to -165dBm it has a superior urban performance

  • USB/UART Interface
  • Build-in patch antenna for optimal sensitivity
  • DGPS(WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS) support (optional by firmware)
  • Maximum update rate : up to 10Hz (optional by firmware)
  • RoHS compliant
The new MediaTek GPS module has a custom and exclusive firmware that allows the unit to output an efficient and very compressed binary protocol (This firmware is especially developed to operate with ArduPilot modules). You can still change between NMEA and Binary protocol with standard MTK messages, and switch the refresh rate between 1Hz to 10Hz, or set any standard serial baud rate (by default is set to 38400 bps and custom binary protocol).

An Arduino example for decoding the custom binary protocol is provided. For this you'll need to install the library folder "GPS_MTK" inside the Arduino IDE "libraries" folder "arduino-00XXlibraries\". For the most updated code, please go to this page.
Once there, download the most recent "ArduPlane X.XX.zip" file; open the "libraries" folder and then "AP_GPS" where you'll find the most recent code for the Mediatek GPS.
