Neo 6M GPS Module
Ublox Neo 6M GPS Module is a complete GPS module that is based on the Ublox Neo 6M. This module uses the latest technology from Ublox, allowing it to give the best possible positioning information. It also includes an external GPS Antenna and UART TTL connections. This module has an onboard rechargeable li-ion battery so that the module can hot start in most cases and can obtain the GPS lock faster.
The UBlox NEO 6M GPS Module Engine is very good and comes with a binary output of very high precision. It is also suitable for indoor applications due to its high sensitivity. The onboard battery also allows for storage of configuration settings in EEPROM. The module has UFL Connector for the connection with GPS Antenna using a Cable. It allows for flexibility in mounting GPS Module, allowing the antenna to be positioned such that it will always face the sky for best performance. And therefore, making it powerful for use with cars, and other mobile GPS Applications.
The NEO-6M GPS module is a well-performing complete GPS receiver with a built-in 25 x 25 x 4mm ceramic antenna, which provides a strong satellite search capability. With the power and signal indicators, you can monitor the status of the module. Thanks to the data backup battery, the module can save the data when the main power is shut down accidentally. Its 3mm mounting holes can ensure easy assembly on your aircraft, which thus can fly steadily at a fixed position, return Home automatically, automatic waypoint flying, etc. Or you can apply it on your smart robot car for automatic returning or heading to a certain destination, making it a real "smart" bot!
This is an updated module that is compatible with the ardupilot mega v2 flight controller.
NOTE: NEO-6M GPS Module is NOT COMPATIBLE with APM 2.8 FLIGHT CONTROLLER.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. How does GPS module neo-6M work?
- GPS modules contain tiny processors and antennas that directly receive data sent by satellites through dedicated RF frequencies. The module will connect to 3 or more satellites to triangulate the position the position of its user
2. What is the use of a GPS module?
- GPS or Global Positioning systems provides user with positioning information, navigation and timing (PNT) services.
3. Is Neo-6M GPS accurate?
- Unlike other GPS modules, it can do up to 5 location updates a second with 2.5m Horizontal position accuracy. The u-blox 6 positioning engine also boasts a Time-To-First-Fix (TTFF) of under 1 second.
4. Where can the NEO 6M GPS Module be used?
- The NEO 6M GPS Module be used in applications requiring global positioning and navigation, like automotive vehicles, drones, pets, etc.
5. What is NEO 6M GPS Module?
- The Ublox Neo 6M GPS Module is a fully functional GPS module based on the Ublox Neo 6M. This module makes use of the latest Ublox technology to provide the accurate positioning data. An external GPS antenna and UART TTL connections are also included.
