Just follow the instructions 100%.
You have to load Flashing firmware for the Flashtool program, AND GPS firmware.....
After flashing, I used the latest version of Mini GPS Tool V1.7.1 ( http://www.gtop-tech.com/jsf/download.jsf )
Set COM port to 38400, then press Connect. NB: Then press Ctrl + Alt + S to show the setup menu.
I was then able to set the GPS to output ONLY GGA, GSA and GSV sentences at 115200baud and 10Hz, and SAVE these settings.
So, after doing this, the MTK3329 (DiyDrones) and code from EOSBandi (both serial and I2C) can be used with confidence, at 115kb and 10Hz.
I had a chance, this morning, to test the new GPS Position Hold.
Position Hold definitely works very well. Hovered for 8 minutes in an area of about 1m radius, hands off!
Conditions were calm, almost no wind, but some small gusts, enough to see copter correcting!
Need to play some more with RTH PID's - overshoots a bit +- 10m, getting progressively worse.
I think lowering NavR P and PosR P will be the place to start.
Is this neccesary to run the GPS with the nu code what is thhe difference?what is neded to flash the fmp?
