    Plugged into the assistant tonight and got a message the GPS was not callibrated due to magnetic field. I know you you calibrate the compass and not the GPS. What do they mean?

    No. What threw me is the fact that it said GPS not calibrated and then the mention of magnetic field. I know compasses are effected by magnetic interference but didn't know your GPS could be. I didn't even know that calibrating the GPS is possible. The fact they mentioned a magnetic field makes me think they were actually talking about the compass, I figured DJI would have that warning message right though.

    I have never seen that message but used to be in assistant on my work desk with PC right under it and then moved it away from there and it seemed to clear some of my errors up . Was just wondering .

    In other versions of the Naza, the GPS and compass are combined into one module. I bet they mean the compass. Check your mod value.

    There's no way to calibrate the GPS and it shouldn't be worried by magnetic fields.
    Is there anything large and metallic close by?
    How about a screen shot?
