The NEO-M8U includes u-blox’s latest generation GNSS receiver, which adds Galileo to the multiconstellation reception that already includes GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou and QZSS. The module provides high sensitivity and fast GNSS signal acquisition and tracking. UART, USB, DDC (I2C compliant) and SPI interface options provide flexible connectivity and enable simple integration with most u-blox cellular modules.
The NEO-M8U module introduces u-blox’s Untethered Dead Reckoning (UDR) technology, which provides continuous navigation without requiring speed information from the vehicle. This innovative technology brings the benefits of dead reckoning to installations previously restricted to using GNSS alone, and significantly reduces the cost of installation for after-market dead reckoning applications.
The NEO-M8U may be installed in any position within the vehicle without configuration.
