Hi bozo bozok-san,

amari yakuni tatenakute gomennasai. I do not have experience in GPS connected to Pro board. I have only have worked on GPS connected through I2C to ATmega 328 board. Configuration was tough, and PID tuning took loong time. (Completed position hold only after 2 month, not yet on return to home.)

With your Pro board, you have more options to try GPS. MultiWii or Mega Pirate I read. I am sure you can get more info there.

Hi!

Pay attention how you must connect a UBLOX GPS using FTDI.

GPS FTDI
RX ------------> TX
TX ------------> RX
5V -------------> 5V
GND ----------> GND

UBLOX GPS v1 (with battery) - file: ublox-config.ublox.txt
UBLOX GPS v2 (with eeprom) - file: u-config-v2.txt

Follow this instructions: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1724694

Good luck!

You'll use this cable + FTDI to GPS flashing.



Don't forget...follow this instructions: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1724694

Yes! You must connect them directly to the Ublox GPS (not I2C board).

GPS <====> FTDI
RX ------------> TX
TX ------------> RX
5V -------------> 5V
GND ----------> GND

Enjoy it!

mmmm something interesting just happen. i was not able to do none of the steps that it was recomended on the link . but when i connected the gps to the usb cable and then i started the program ublox. the gps started to work. i was able to see the coordinates etc.
so is working.

the only problem is that is working under 38400 and i don know if i can used that . on the multiwii 2.1 settings. ?

Use ARDUINO NANO W/ ATMEGA 328 to I2C board flashing and ARDUINO PRO OR PRO MINI (5V 16MHz) W/ ATMEGA 328 to Multiwii flashing.

Both GPS version works well.

I uploaded a file (I2C board). Download and configure it: http://www.4shared.com/rar/yYaWO71l/...012__OK_.html?
