Our high quality GPS module, now upgraded to include an external
compass. This is a custom made GPS module for planes, rovers and boats using
Pixhawk with ArduPlane / ArduRover / ArduBoat. It utilizes NEO6 modules and a waterproof high gain antenna. High
accuracy HMC5983 compass with I2C level converters, filtering and
LDOs are installed on board to make it a convenient packet. Pixhawk
detects automatically the external compass and
starts using it. External compass is always more accurate than internal

amplifier and SAW filters to give the best accuracy for GPS signal
