I can’t wait to test my new Pixhawk 2.1 with the Here 2 GPS hopefully there will be some more information online also! I am not sure what cable to use with the CAN function. But I am sure that everything will be clear and work out great as the puzzle pieces are slowly coming together.

Keep up the good work!!

Hi all is the Here2 GPS on the can bus supported in Plane 3.9.8 ?

#10

@yak-54 please read this thread

Here 2 can update

#11

i have and update the Here2 gps
it does not say anything about 3.9.8 plane
as i cant get the GPS side to work on can-bus the led’s work baro works the compass just not the gps on Can 1 nd Can 2

#12

Yes it does. it says plane 3.9.6 so there has been 2 plane releases since that time. The didn’t remove anything in 3.9.7 or 8 just added stuff

#13

i found my answer on GitHub
i have question
i am running 2 x Here2 gps units should i put one on the serial and the other on the Can-bus 1 ?
or just run them on Can 1 and Can 2 ?

#14

I am running 2x Here2 units myself - I just have both of them on CAN1, with different Node IDs configured manually.

They are working well, and verified to be detected separately.
