Upgrade your navigation system with the full-size SAM GPS + IST8308 Mag module, the next generation in high-performance GNSS technology. Based on the uBlox SAM GPS module and enhanced with the IST8308 compass, this unit is engineered to provide superior signal strength and reliability, making it an ideal choice for applications requiring robust and precise positioning.

Key Features:

  • Enhanced Ground Plane: Utilizes a 40mm x 40mm ground plane as recommended by uBlox, significantly boosting signal strength from ~22 dB-Hz to ~34 dB-Hz. This results in a 66% increase in received signal energy, enhancing reliability and noise immunity.
  • Advanced IST8308 Magnetometer: Offers reduced temperature drift, greater sensitivity, and an integrated noise filter compared to its predecessors, ensuring precise and stable compass readings.
  • High-Performance GPS Receiver: Built on the uBlox SAM M8Q, the module supports multiple satellite constellations for robust and accurate positioning.
  • Optimized Design: Despite the larger ground plane, the module remains lightweight at 10.3 grams, thanks to a thinner PCB and a new-generation, smaller rechargeable coin battery.
  • Standard Connectors and Mounting: Features a JST-GH connector for GPS and I2C interfaces, along with standard 30.5mm x 30.5mm mounting holes, compatible with PixRacer/X2.1 setups.
  • Additional Features: Includes PPS/GND signal pads, a status LED, and comprehensive pinout information for easy integration.


  • Dimensions: 42mm x 42mm x 11mm
  • Weight: 10.3 grams
  • Mounting Holes: 2.3mm diameter, spaced at 30.5mm x 30.5mm (1.2" x 1.2")
  • Connector: 6-Pin JST-GH for GPS and I2C

Typical Applications:

  • UAV Systems: Provides reliable and precise navigation for drones and UAVs in various environments.
  • Robotics: Enhances positioning accuracy in robotic systems, critical for automated operations.
  • Surveying and Mapping: Suitable for applications requiring high-precision GNSS data in challenging conditions.
  • Marine and Automotive: Ideal for vehicles needing robust GPS and compass capabilities.
