  • Description
  • Specifications
  • This Advanced GPS/GNSS receiver for the Survey3 cameras provides increased image geolocation accuracy compared to the Standard GPS. Using this receiver you will see much improved latitude, longitude and altitude location accuracy thanks to the newer u-blox NEO-M8 module (compared to the u-blox 7 used in the Standard GPS). It features active circuitry for the ceramic patch antenna, rechargeable backup battery for warm starts and up to 26 second cold starts. The NEO-M8 series provides high sensitivity and minimal acquisition times while maintaining low system power. Sophisticated RF-architecture and interference suppression ensure maximum performance even in GNSS-hostile environments.

    Since this GPS receiver does not have a barometer it is still possible for the altitude values to be captured incorrectly, so some post processing may be required.

    You have two options for the Advanced GPS cable:

    • LONG: 8.0 inch (20cm) less-flexible, straight USB plug cable
    • SHORT: 5.5 inch (14cm) more-flexible, angled USB plug cable

    The LONG cable is the default option when purchasing the Advanced GPS with a camera or mount. If you would like to increase the LONG cable length, or combine multiple USB plugs to support multiple cameras please also purchase this item on our store.

    The SHORT is the recommended option for our Mavic Pro mount, or any other mount you choose. The length cannot be increased nor can multiple USB plugs be combined to support multiple cameras on a single receiver.
