GNSS not working


#1

Hello everybody. I connected the gnss antenna to the navio via the mcx port and attempted to run this file https://github.com/emlid/Navio2/blob/master/Python/GPS.py. However, longitude and latitude are always zero no matter how long I wait. I was outside where there were no trees and only sky. In addition, the antenna was not obstructed at all.

Can you share your hardware setup photo, please?
Also, did you try connecting Navio2 to Mission Planner to check if you can see position data in it?


#4

Yes I did connect via mission planner and nothing showed up. I was outside too and I tried moving the gnss antenna to other positions too and it didnt help


#5

Is there a step that I missing? All I did was plug the gnss antenna in. Could the antenna be defective?

Please, double-check the MCX connection firstly.
Put an antenna above all the hardware parts. As I can see in the photo, it’s located underneath the drone.
Provide an antenna with a clear sky view and make one more test outside.

Let me know about the results :slightly_smiling_face:
