GPS in Betaflight Poor Signal Strength
« on: August 16, 2019, 10:46:26 AM »

I've just wired up my new GPS Module up to a spare Flight Controller to test it out before fitting. I think I have everything setup ok but I'm not getting a GPS fix as the Signal is poor.

I'm just wondering if this looks like it's working correct and the signal is just because I'm not in a field somewhere. I have tried this at home where I can place it on a windowsill and also at work. Note this isn't in a quad so there are no other electronics that could interfere.

I could get zero satellites indoors sometimes, even perched on my windowsill angling out.  You'd really need to get it outside properly to test.  Generally though, if you are getting some signal through - which you are, then the receiver is working properly

Panic over I tried it again the other night and it just worked fine. Maybe just a lose connection on my test rig!
