Re: New RCtimer GPS Ublox Neo 6M fails to perform on Mega bo

Just tried RTH and POS HOLD swapping new and old GPS on the same CRIUS AIO PRO. At first stage I haven't seen any significant advantage...but I was in an open area.
In house the new GPS fixes pretty soon while the old one not always fixes so easily.
