Zubax GNSS 2


#1

I purchase Zubax GNSS 2 I am trying to make work with pixhawk APM 3.4rc1 no luck
please Help


(Pavel Kirienko) #2

Could you please describe in detail what your problem is.


#3

I did everything connect the gps with terminator to the copter pixhawk then change gps type to 9
Then change parameter Brd can to 2 Reboot don’t see any sat I did calibrate the compass

Let’s first make sure that your Zubax GNSS 2 is not damaged. Connect it to your computer via USB and check the NMEA output. You can do so in two ways:

  1. Open the port and see at the raw NMEA stream. You can decode it here: freenmea.net/decoder

  2. Launch some mapping application, e.g. QGIS

Also make sure that the PPS LED is blinking once a second.


#5

I connected to Zubax GPS vis usb I used Mitty.exe to connect to GPS at 115200 8N1
it was connected and type cfg list
How I can see the NMEA data


(Pavel Kirienko) #6

You will see NMEA if you open the port with baudrate 57600 or lower. More info: rtfm.zubax.com/zubax_gnss_2#Protocol_selection

Thanks. The unit is working fine, therefore the problem should be somewhere either on the APM side or in the connection.

Please make sure that you reboot the Pixhawk after setting BRD_CAN_ENABLE to 2. When APM is running, check that the CAN1 LED on the Zubax GNSS 2 is glowing. If it doesn’t, there’s a problem with CAN connection - either a bad cable or connector on the Pixhawk side is damaged.

Pavel,

I just purchased the zubax 2 and I am trying to get it connected to the Pixhawk. I am using Mission Planner. I have gone over the instructions but i cannot find the parameter BRD_CAN_ENABLE. I have it connected to the CAN port on the Pixhawk. Can you offer assistance?


(Pavel Kirienko) #10

Sure. I’m 99% confident you’re not using ArduCopter v3.4. Please upgrade, and you’ll find the parameter.

Also, could you please start a new thread next time you have a question. Thanks in advance!
