I've got one without compass. It has place on the PCB for the chip, but it is unpopulated.
I would be happy, if only the wiring is missing as for many others, but that is not the case with this oneIn my case I've got one which has no compass. It has place for the chip on the board but it's unpopulated. I would be happy, if only the wiring is missing as for many others.This is actually funny, the GPS has a MAG (Compass) but is not wired or connected! In order to use this MAG you will need to open the GPS module, solder 2 wires and connect them to the Flexi Port with I2C protocol. The GPS itself is good for its price.have not used this yet but all the parts look great and easy to install,Decent GPS module for use with Revolution / LibrePilot. Only uses GPS satellites. It does have a built-in compass, but is not wired up. In order to use the compass, you have to open the unit up and add the other two (SCL and SDA) wires to the 6-position connector. The compass talks over I2C and is powered by the same power / gnd connections that already exist.
The latest BETA build of LibrePilot will talk to the compass over the Flexi port only on a Revolution board, just be sure that you are powering via flight battery and not USB cable as the USB cable doesn't send power to the Main / Flexi ports.Went with CC3D revo, GPS stand is neat too
