The Matek M8Q-5883 is a GPS and compass combo that provides rock-solid location data for any project. With built-in noise filters and compatibility with most RC flight controller software (iNav, Betaflight, Ardupilot, etc), this is a great option in any build.
- 72-channel M8 engine GPS L1C/A, SBAS L1C/A, QZSS L1C/A, QZSS L1 SAIF, GLONASS L1OF, Galileo E1B/C
- On-board Ultra low noise 3.3V voltage regulator and RF filter for noise blocking
- Features an additional front-end LNA for optimized performance and a front-end SAW filter for increased jamming immunity
- Build-in embedded GNSS patch antenna, low power consumption
- The 15 x 15 mm patch antenna provides the best compromise between the performance of a Right Hand Circular Polarized (RHCP) antenna and a small size to be integrated in any design.

- Dimensions: L20 x W20 x H10 mm
- Weight: 7 gram
- Supported by INAV/Betaflight/Ardupilot, ect.
- GPS, GLONASS, SBAS, QZSS are enabled by default
- u-blox M8Q series has no external flash memory

- update rate 5Hz with INAV UBLOX Protocol
- update rate 10Hz with INAV UBLOX7 Protocol
Compass Alignment(Arrow forward and flat mounting): Tilting the magnetometer is strongly discouraged !
INAV/BetaFLight: CW 270° Flip when flight controller arrow is facing forward also
Ardupilot/Mission Planner: Rotation None
- BF doesn’t support GPS position hold and RTH, GPS Rescue mode is supported by BF3.5 or last.
- No need compass for Fixed wings with INAV firmware
- The scratches on ceramic antenna are the result of tuning the antenna by ublox.
- Make sure to have compass/magnetometer 10cm away from power lines/ESC/motors/iron based material
