Post by Kot_dnz »

This tutorial based on https://code.google.com/p/ardupirates/wiki/UbloxGPSTutorial - respect to author!
With adaptation to our requirements.

First at all connect GPS neo6m to USB-TTL converter (3,3v-Vcc, rx-tx, tx-rx, gnd-gnd) and to Windows PC

By default module run with configuration 9600-8-n-1 and send many left for us NMEA fields.

Download the u-center software from http://www.u-blox.com/en/evaluation-tools-a-software/u-center/u-center.html
Start the program

choose Message view

Current rusefi NMEA lib parse only GxGGA and GxRMC.
On all other, which not hidden, right click and choose
"Disable child messages" and "Disable message" (GLL, GSA, GRS, ...)
Final window must look like

Next step - increase port speed
UBX->CFG->PRT, instead 9600 chose 38400 and push in left bottom corner button "Send"
Window view

Change the program speed

Change rate - instead 1000 place 200
Don't forget push Send button.

And now important thing - save all.
First is: Receiver -> Action -> Save Config

And final step UBX -> CFG -> CFG -> Save current configuration

"Send" button!

That's all.
Now switch off/on power supply, module need approx 10-15 secs for cold start up.
Run putty (or what you want), and on speed 38400 we must have
