When connecting to the #MAP-X2 utilize the PORT called X2 with the PURPLE sleeved JST-GH cable. Make sure that #GPK2 and #MAP-X2 have the same BAUDRATE value in order to function correctly.

When connecting to #RADIO or any other radio equipment – make sure to use the PORT named COM on #GPK2. Don’t forget to double check that BAUDRATE for #GPK2 and #RADIO matches – otherwise the modules will not be able to communicate together. If you are using other radio equipment than Seagull products – ensure that logic levels for interface matches with #GPK2 at 3.3V.

Rover – operation is selected, connect GREEN sleeved JST-GH cable to your radio equipment.

Base   – operation is selected, connect PURPLE sleeved JST-GH cable to your radio equipment.


Connect the #GPK2 module that is operating in ROVER mode to the Pixhawk1, Pixhawk2, Pixracer or other ardupilot based flight controllers directly into the GPS marked ports. There is no need to setup any extra configuration, because all the necessary modes are set by #GPK2. Please use the port that is called FC on the #GPK2 when connecting to the flight controller.

Please note that on older flight controllers that are not capable to adjust higher BAUDRATES than 115200, might limit the maximum navigational frequency of #GPK2 when functioning as ROVER in PPK mode.

To determine what Seagull #GPK2 is currently doing – simply read the output of the LEDS and match with table below:
