I bought this GPS module to replace my the MTK module that comes with the Multiwii Pro. I'm fairly new to this, and read a lot of instructions online, but ended up going with trial and error. This module is 100pcnt compatable with the 2.2 firmware and will be automatically configured if you setup the firmware for ublox, serial 2, and the correct baud rate "115200". Do not be confused by the stock baud rate. You WILL need to set the baud rate to 115200 in order for it to work with the Multiwii, but you will not have to do any firmware and configuration settings directly to the GPS module (this is handled automatically).
Also, please note that unless you find an adapter that works with the Multiwii GPS port, you are going to have to strip the current connector off this module and climp and solder on JST connectors. If you don't already have the JST connectors or a climp, you can accomplish this fairly cheaply with some needle nose pliers and some cheap JST kits from HK.
