Recently I was playing with moving a machine from the pixhawk to the navigator board, but during the switch I noticed that I could not get the relay parameter for the navigator board (at least as far as I can tell, QGC only shows support for the pixhawk and bb blue on the relay parameters). Now unfortunately for me, this was important to actuating on and off a board I am sending the signal to, since the minimum pwm doesn’t turn off the board when using servo_function.
Is there any way to emulate the relay function with the navigator board or get the relay parameters to work with the navigator board?
I’ve moved some other comments here that are on the same topic. In general, we haven’t yet finalised the relay functionality on Navigator yet -
I think last I heard we had a seemingly working firmware test branch, but it needed some more testing before release. Our software team is small, and there are a couple of other features that are being finished off first. I’m hopeful relay support will be sorted out some time within this month

Currently the behaviour is working well for relays, but some of the other ArduPilot developers have requested some changes that would allow it to support more general digital output purposes instead of just relays.
