NEO-6H Ublox/u-blox GPS Module for MWC/APM
This GPS module integrates an LEA-6H GPS receiver with a Massive 35x35x4mm ceramic patch antenna. The high performance of the u-blox LEA-6H positioning engine enables navigation even in weak signal environments.
Recommended where GPS accuracy is very important. It has active circuitry for the ceramic patch antenna and a Huge backup battery for warm starts. These units will ship pre-configured for MWC or ArduPilot.
The GPS hood can be installed . This is an enlargement of the ground-plane of the GPS-Receiver to increase the signal strenght. Also it shields the antenna against electro magnetic fields of the other electronics.
Improvement of the GPS signal strenth
The improvements has the following advantages:
better Position-Hold of the quad
much better GPS performance during sun storms
- faster Fix after switch-on
