Satellites number with LibrePilot2Go
« on: February 07, 2017, 02:07:11 pm »
I have tested the LibrePilot2Go and found it very easy to configure with my OpLink Mini on a tablet.
The most difficult part was finding a Micro USB adapter.

Great job indeed.

Just one question I had when realizing that the number of satellites was 16, compared to the usual figure between 6 and 9.
Is Android capable of multiplying the satellites ?   ???
When looking to the System tab I see that 16 could be the number of "satellites in view" instead of the "used satellites".

Both Copter  and tablet use the UAVO version 086dc116.

Am I wrong or wiil it be a correction for the next version ?

Regards
Jean

With the same GPS?

Within the last few years, the standard GPS has gone from "USA GPS satellites only" to include other satellites belonging to other countries.  That will about double the number of satellites tracked.

I also notice that there can be a large change from time to time due to weather and satellite positions.

Hi Jean!

Thanks for the feedback! ;-)

You are indeed correct, currently "SatsinView" is used. I'm pushing an update tonight.
It should be "GPSPositionSensor" => "Satellites", correct?

Best Regards,
Marc
