I have purchased a new Pixracer R14 and ublox neo-m8n gps with hmc5983 compass from mRo and have a few issues and questions.
Part 1. Im not having much luck and get a “mag sensors inconsistent” error. I have aligned the GPS/Compass as per the arrow on the board. See photo but this arrow is not consistent with the X arrow (XYZ diagram) on the underside of the unit. Do I follow the top arrow or the X on XYZ chart in the underside?
Part 2. Because the hmc5983 compass is mounted on the underside of the GPS/Compass unit do I need to apply 180 rotation in QGroundcontrol for this unit?
Part 3. Why do I see three compasses in Qgroundcontriol Mag0, Mag1 and Mag2?
Thanks in advance.
I have disabled MAG0 (the external) and recalibrated in the two Pixracer Compass MAG1 and MAG2. Much better result. I also tried disabling the Pixracer Compasses and only ran with the external compass and found it wandered all over the place.
mRo have very kindly offered to inspect repair/replace item. They have been very helpful however since i have it working without the need for the 3rd compass im going to keep it.
