Assuming that you are referring to the Hobby King board, or similar: I have this board, but have not yet used it. I would connect the center four wires from the MTK GPS to the like named pins on one of the FC's serial ports. You may, or may not, need to connect tx/rx to tx/rx or tx/rx to rx/tx. Which ever works. (Some boards have them pre-swapped. Tx to RX and Rx to Tx if not pre-swapped.)

I saw different types of gps devices,
with 4 wires, with 6 wires,
with different layouts,
with description, without description,...

So, go and ask the gps vendor for more details...

The same applies for the multiwii pro board. Which are you referring to?
