The new Turnigy GPS module has the powerful Ubox Neo-6M GPS receiver and incorporates the HMC5883L digital compass.
This new design and the included hard case with incorporated collapsible pedestal mount, provides a convenient method of mounting the compass away from sources of interference. The GPS unit features active circuitry for the ceramic patch antenna, rechargeable backup battery for hot starts, and I2C EEPROM for configuration storage. The GPS is also shipped pre-configured for use with HKPILOT, so there is no need to get the old FTDI cable out.

Great GPS and compass, makes mounting the mast to any M3 hole a breeze compared to dice boards that need to be mounted directly onto build frame's. Unfortunately my internal connector recently came loose and required an RMA but that's getting sorted out nowI used this GPS with my APM, so far good GPS tracking however, when I do a return to launch it does not always land on exact launch point, I would say the accuracy is about 3 to 4 meters off. has anyone had this problem. other than that its a good GPS??????? ????????, ?????????? ?????????
