Hi @subcmarine, the Underwater GPS system requires a copper twisted pair to send signals to the analog locator. There’s no way to do it through a fiber optic cable at the moment, unfortunately.
How about integrate it on BlueROV2 with advanced electronics.
Is it possible to hook up to same pair as ROV via new WebUI interface and Endpoints?
Power from ROV, Com through Pi?
Or does it still need it own pair?
The Locator-A1 still need its own pair. Right now we don’t have a solution for transmitting the “ping” over fathom-x.
Hello, what is the difference between the Underwater GPS Developer Kit and the Underwater GPS Developer Bundle ? (because the difference of price is huge )
I’m not sure what you’re seeing on the website, but there is a minor difference in price between the two products of about $50 depending on the options selected. The bundle does not include the case and connectors for the topside master electronics, and is meant for users looking to retrofit it to an existing system and enclosure. The developer kit is a more complete package with case and connectors meant for standalone use and with vehicles like the BlueROV2.
During spring 2018 water linked will offer a battery powered Locator-U1. will this show up in QGC the same way as A-1 without using the subsea integration kit?
Yes, the wireless locator will work just like the wired version!
