The New HKPilot Micro GPS and Compass module is perfect for the small class multirotor, planes or even standalone OSD application. Featuring the new u-Blox MAX 7 chipset and a matched 15x15 dual amplified ceramic antenna, this micro GPS is packing full size power. The micro GPS also has the Honeywell HMC5883 Compass for remote location, to get your compass away from sources of interference. All this power and features, all at just 8g, the HKPilot Micro GPS all so comes with cables for both the 5 pin HKPilot Mega (APM), and the 6 pin HKPilot 32 (Pixhalk). This Micro GPS is also perfect for the MWC and Naze32 applications as well. 

Features:
• Active ceramic antenna, 15 × 15mm, comes with two LNA low-noise amplifier
• UART interfaces with EMI protection design, the RXD port can be compatible with 5V level signal input
• Build in HMC5883 compass I2C interface
• HG-U06 GPS with a standard UART (TTL) serial interface, common in most of the flight control
• Default setting Baud rate: 38400, update rate: 10hz
• 56ch u-blox 7 multi-GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS and SBAS) engine

Specs:
Dimensions (mm): 20 (width) x 22 (length) × 8.5 (H)
Weight (g): 8.2 (without cable)
GPS module: u-blox MAX-7Q
Onboard interface: Molex 1.25mm-4Pin(I2C), 6Pin(UART)

Included:
GPS MODULE * 1
I2C 4pin cable* 1
UART 6pin to 5pin cable* 1 (for APM)
UART 6pin to 6pin cable* 1 (for PX4)

*PX4/Pixhawk is an independent, open-source, open-hardware project aiming at providing a high-end autopilot to the academic, hobby and industrial communities (BSD licensed) 

**The reference to APM refers to the ArduPilot project, a family of open source autopilots based on the Arduino open source computing platform, developed by 3DR and the open source community. It consists of a choice of ArduPilot Mega (APM) electronics and a range of free software versions for different vehicles and is governed by an open source creative commons license.

Takes impossibly long times go get a fix. Was hoping to use it on a 250 FPV Quad, but now I fear the antenna is so lousy that it won't even work for return to home function.

It was needed to replace the diode which is in serie with the battery (the original one was a 0,5V one and I put a 0.2V one instead to get a better charge level of the battery, It is not mandatory to do it but it allows faster hotstart ). As the other people said, the configuration was initially 9600baud/1Hz. It was easy to change it to 38400Baud/ 5Hz with Ucenter. Once the new configuration is saved, it looks like the GPS doesn't work with Ucenter anymore (no more satellite capture), but once plugged to an APM, it works fine (I tested that with others ublox6 and it is the same strange behavior...). I tried to download the 3DR configuration file but it didn't work : The changes need to be done manually in the Ucenter. The configuration is kept well in the gps (some other reviewers said it was not retained). The size and weight is very appreciable for my QAV250. I just hope HK will update/replace this bad diode and put the right configuration before sending it to the others customers.

Completely useless thing. 2.3V battery, no memory, antenna without amplifier. Factory setup 1Hz, 9600 bit / s. Changed settings are kept for 5 minutes, then return to the factory. In 30 minutes can't defined position. Do not throw away money.

Takes forever to get a fix. Does not like to save compass settings. And works great for a smaller quad where weight and space are limited. I do not recommend this product.

Mine arrived missconfigured (9600 Baud) without a chance to update the Settings...Button Cell only loads to 2.8 volts (after 48h) and even after re-solder the antenna it took hours to get a Fix..
absolute worst GPS i ever had...no way to get this thing to work...

:-(
