The MATEKSYS M10-5883 supports GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou), offers excellent RF sensitivity, will help you pick up the best signals, and can improve the dynamic position accuracy with small antennas or in non-line-of-sight scenarios.

Check out all our GPS modules, and our full line of Matek products!


  •  M10-5883 uses multi-constellation GNSS powered by u-blox MAX-M10S.
  • MAX-M10S supports the concurrent reception of four GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou). The high number of visible satellites enables the receiver to select the best signals. This maximizes the position availability, in particular under challenging conditions such as in deep urban canyons. u-blox Super-S (Super-Signal) technology offers excellent RF sensitivity and can improve the dynamic position accuracy with small antennas or in non-line-of-sight scenarios. For maximum sensitivity in passive antenna designs, the MAX-M10S module integrates an LNA followed by a SAW filter in the RF path.


    • GNSS u-blox MAX-M10S (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou)
    • Magnetic Compass QMC5883L
    • Patch antenna 18*18*4mm
    • Input voltage range: 4~9V (5V pad/pin)
    • Power consumption: 13mA
    • UART baudrate: 9600 default
    • Operating Temperatures: -20~80 °C
    • UART(TX, RX) interface for GNSS MAX-M10S
    • I2C(DA, CL) interface for Compass QMC5883L
    • JST-GH-6P connector (SM06B-GHS-TB)
    • GNSS PPS LED, Green. (Solid ON after powering on M10-5883,  blinking(1Hz) when GNSS gets a 3D fix)
    • 23mm*23mm*10mm
    • 9g


      • Compass Alignment(Arrow forward and flat mounting): Tilting the magnetometer is strongly discouraged!
        INAV/BetaFLight: CW 270° Flip when the flight controller arrow is facing forward also.
        Ardupilot/Mission Planner: Rotation None.
      • Protocol: Ublox 5Hz or NMEA 1Hz
      • INAV 5.0.0, Betaflight 4.3.0,  ArduPilot 4.1 or newer is required.
      • The default configuration on MAX-M10S with ublox FW 5.1 is concurrent reception of GPS, Galileo, and BeiDou B1I with QZSS and SBAS enabled.  GLONASS is disabled by default.
      • Beidou B1I (1561.098 MHz) and GLONASS can’t be enabled simultaneously.  Beidou B1C (1575.42 MHz) and GLONASS can be enabled simultaneously. Flight controller firmware(INAV, Betaflight, ArduPilot) doesn’t support enabling Beidou B1C for now.  so MAX-M10S can’t receive GLONASS when it works with the flight controller(firmware INAV, Betaflight, ArduPilot).
      • with GPS, Galileo, and BeiDou B1I with QZSS and SBAS enabled, MAX-M10s can receive more than 30 Sattelites with HDOP down to 0.55.
      • Starting with u-Blox GNSS FW3.01, the time pulse is aligned with UTC time and that time is set valid only after the leap second is downloaded. That could take up to 12.5 min. Probably PPS LED will not blink immediately after GPS has 3D fixed.
      • The M10-5883 provides the ability to reset the receiver. Bridging the “RST” pad to the Ground for at least 100 ms will trigger a cold start. RESET will delete all information and trigger a cold start. It should only be used as a recovery option.
      • Make sure to have compass/magnetometer 10cm away from power lines/ESC/motors/iron-based material
      • The scratches on the ceramic antenna are the result of tuning the antenna.
      • HD cameras(GoPro, Split, Tarsier, etc) could interfere with GPS signal, try turning off HD camera before GPS 3D fix
      • There are reports that Frsky X8R could interfere with M9N GPS. If you are using X8R and GPS can’t get 3D locked.  power off X8R then test.
