Have you got a FTDI to test the GPS?
No, i have not a FTDI.
But, with Mission Planner need no FTDI, because MP can transfer gps messages / configure gps via network connection to U-Center (press <Ctrl+F> in MPs Flight Data screen, click “MAVSerial pass” and create a network connection in U-Center with
And what do to in U-Center?

I want to know if you can see some sats in U-center. You have to understand if the problem is the Dropix or the GPS.
No, i can’t see any sats in U-Center.

OK so maybe the GPS has a hardware problem.
Can you send us back the GPS please? We will test it to be sure.
Before i send back the gps, can YOU test this?
connect gps with dropix
flash the actual firmware
wait for sat connects and gps fix
Is all ok, save the gps config file and send it to me. I will do then a last test with the gps.
