I tried using it using the UART port, however, when you read it using screen command, there are garbage values coming along with the distance.

sudo screen /dev/ttyAMA0 115200

Need to fix this before we can forward it to Arducopter. I thought it was the Bluetooth interfering with the UART (the RPI problem), but they have already disabled it.

Btw, the same sensor works in Pixhawk and BBBlue.

is px4flow supported in navio2?

Hi @roishachar,

Yes, it’s possible to connect that kind of sensors to Navio2.
