I purchased Erle Robotics' PXFmini, power module and Neo-M8N GPS.
I don't have good reception in my apartment so it's difficult to test GPS fix via computer / APM Planner.
1.) I already confirmed params Min Sat => 6 and HDOP < 2. Is any other setup required for GPS?
2.) When outdoors, how can I confirm a GPS fix has been found? Should the blue light on the GPS be solid or blinking (it's always blinking for me)?
3.) The GPS unit I received did not come with a mounting rod like I've seen in photos - so I currently have it attached very close to the PXFmini + Raspberry Pi - is this fine (interference?)?
