Hi,
I had Pixhawk autopilot and this UBLOX NEO-7M High Precision GPS. But the problem is, Pixhawk has 6 GPS pins, with GND on 6th pin and CAN2 TX and RX are on pins 4 and 5 which are optional. But the GPS I got have 5 pins connectors with GND on 5th pin Head Scratching what should I do? Where I can get such connector?
Thanks
Regards

On the QK website it clearly said it comes with APM connector. All you have to do is to remove the wiring from 5 pin APM connector, get a 6 pin connector and swap the wires accordingly. Lot of info is available on the internet.

@phanivyas
Thanks for your reply. Where can I get that connector? All I am seeing is Lipo balance plug which is very large.

Didn't you get it along with your GPS module? On the QK website they have mentioned that a 6 Pin connector will be provided. Usually they are available in your local electronic components store, ask for Hirose or DF13 connectors and they come with cables attached and costs approx Rs50/each. Take your Pixhawk along with you while purchasing so that the connector what you get can be seated on the GPS port on Pixhawk without any Pitch mismatch.

Oh yes, my bad. I saw that later. Successfully swapped it and turned it on. Since Windows 10 is giving problems with Mission Planner, I will install Windows 8.1 and will check. Thanks a lot.
