The MD6 serial multi GNSS Receiver based on u-blox 8 chipset has a built-in antenna for high sensitivity. You can use this GNSS Receiver with a laptop and a suitable routing software for navigation. The MD6 universal connector enables the connection of optional USB or serial connecting cables. The NL-8044P GNSS receiver can be installed onto different vehicle roofs (car, truck, bus etc.) by using the included installation material. Thus it can perfectly fit into the vehicle concept, due to its design.

Galileo (satellite navigation) The European navigation system Galileo will start probably at the end of 2016 and will become full operational capability (FOC) in 2020. Our Navilock u-blox 8 receivers support Galileo since the firmware version 3.01.

The new GNSS system requires the version 4.1 of the NMEA 0183 protocol. The evaluation software uCenter displays the Galileo satellites.

Please notice the instruction for this update.
Option PPS (Pulse Per Second) The Pulse-Per-Second (PPS) signal is available on the mini DIN connector at PIN 6. It is synchronized with UTC time. A flexible power supply for PPS provides the integrated Darlington circuit and a pull-up resistor of 10 KOhm.
