The Here2 RTK GPS receiver is a new RTK GPS module from HEX that provides highly reliable navigation. Using RTK, PX4 can get its position with centimetre-level accuracy, which is much more accurate than can be provided by a normal GPS.
Main features include:
- Concurrent reception of upto 3 GNSS (GPS, Galileo, GLOSNASS, BeiDou)
- Industry Leading -167 dBm navigation sensitivity
- Security and integrity protection
- Supports all satellite augmentation systems
- Advanced jamming and spoofing detection
RTK setup and use on PX4 via QGroundControl is largely plug and play (see RTK GPS for more information).
If the GPS is not detected then update the Here2 firmware.
The Here2 GPS comes with an 8 pin connector that can be inserted directly into the Pixhawk 2 GPS UART port.
The Pixhawk 3 Pro and Pixracer have a 6 pin GPS port connector. For these controllers you can modify the GPS cable (as shown below) to remove pin 6 and 7.
Pin 6 and 7 are for the safety button - these can be attached as well if needed.
The Here2 GPS pinout is provided below. This can be used to help modify the connector for other autopilot boards.
