Flying indoors without GPS

Since the Navio has the GPS module embedded on the board, is there a way to ensure that the GPS module is not used indoors? For instance, an AP parameter that tells the ArduPilot to not try to lock GPS.

I think what you might want to do is assign a channel that doesn’t require GPS on your transmitter. According to ardupilot these specific flight modes don’t require GPS lock.

Do not require GPS lock:

Alt Hold

Unfortunately it’s not as simple as that. See this issue. Anyway, at this point, I just want to make sure (via an AP parameter) that the ArduPilot doesn’t try to lock embedded GPS module on the Navio when I switch the transmitter to Alt Hold mode.
