What should I expect as a response from the checkNav command. Is there a document that describes this command.

You have to set the MAX-7Q up for Airborne mode to make it work and it will fail at 40,000 feet if you don't. - Bill WB8ELK

 

Here is how I do it:

 

============================================

unsigned char setNav[] = {

    0xB5, 0x62, 0x06, 0x24, 0x24, 0x00, 0xFF, 0xFF, 0x06, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x10, 0x27, 0x00, 0x00, 0x05, 0x00, 0xFA, 0x00, 0xFA, 0x00, 0x64, 0x00, 0x2C, 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x16, 0xDC  };

 

//  Set uBlox MAX series to Airborne Mode

 

   for(int i=0; i<44; i++){ // 

     Serial.write(setNav[i]);

   }

============================================

 

// The whole GPS_setup routine:(put the setNav array shown above in Global variable section or in the function)

 

// ****************************************/

void setupGPS() 

// *****************************************

{

  // setup serial port for u-Blox MAX-7C GPS new 110115

    Serial.begin(9600); // to talk to GPS Modem via RX and TX pins 0 and 1

       delay(10);

    Serial.flush();

       delay(10); 

 

// Configure uBlox MAX to only output GGA and RMC messages  

  Serial.println("$PUBX,40,GLL,0,0,0,0*5C");

  delay(1000);

//  Serial.println("$PUBX,40,GGA,0,0,0,0*5A");

//  delay(1000);

  Serial.println("$PUBX,40,GSA,0,0,0,0*4E");

  delay(1000);

//  Serial.println("$PUBX,40,RMC,0,0,0,0*47");

//  delay(1000);

  Serial.println("$PUBX,40,GSV,0,0,0,0*59");

  delay(1000);

  Serial.println("$PUBX,40,VTG,0,0,0,0*5E");

  delay(3000);

 

// Set up uBlox MAX series to Airborne Mode

   for(int i=0; i<44; i++){ // 

     Serial.write(setNav[i]);

   }

   

   delay(500);

   

   Serial.end(); // new 110115

     

   return;

}

// ---------------end of setupGPS()----------------------/

 

You can check to see if you have successfully configured the uBlox MAX to be set for Airborne mode by looking at the response to this command:

 

unsigned char checkNav[] = {0xB5, 0x62, 0x06, 0x24, 0x00, 0x00, 0x2A, 0x84};

 

    for(int i=0; i<sizeof(checkNav); i++){ 

      Serial.write(checkNav[i]);

    }

The uBlox Max technical reference datasheet shows the response. I will look it up when i get off work. -Bill WB8ELK

GPSL 2020 - 9-11 July 2020

Mark Conner N9XTN
 

Hi everyone,

GPSL 2020 is officially set for July 9-11.  Friday's events will be at the University of Nebraska-Omaha campus near 62nd and Dodge Streets in Omaha.

I know there are some who won't be able to make this date, but there appeared to be fewer conflicts for the July weekend than for Field Day weekend.

We will have events during the day on Thursday and a Thursday evening welcome dinner.  Lunch Friday will probably be at the student center on campus which is a short walk from the classroom.  We'll also have a dinner on Friday evening.

Hope to see you next summer!
