I am having problem getting Magnetometer enabled in iNav 2.2.1 on Omnibus F4 V6, I have gotten GPS to work on UART 3, UART 6 is used by SBUS on X8R, TX1 is used by SmartPort. Is there any way to enable Mag on the iNav.
I have been banging my head for the whole day but cannot get it working. GPS seems to be working fine however i also need the Mag to work if i am running mission planner. When i force enable the Mag the GPS dies, Also i will be hooking up Bluetooth Low Energy Module HM-11 on this so this can work with speedyBee iNav app, but i suppose i dont have any UART left, any suggestion is welcome.
Can i get someone to write a custom firmware to address this problem?
UPDATE: I am reflashing firmware from iNav OMNIBUS F4V6 (firmware), earlier i was using Fireworks version, will check with this firmware and update later
Thanks @dale589, I have been able to figure that out, now looks like the MAG and GPS both have started working, I need to figure out a way to make MOTOR 5 & 6 PIN OUT to be used as software serial to hook up a bluetooth BLE Module. I have created one already for my Smart-Port but i need one more, will it be possible? I am attaching my resource list. Please suggest a way out.
And you’ve hit the same problem i had the omni f4 v6 seems to ignore motor 5 and 6 with latest firmware. i wanted to use them as servo outputs but failed as the firmware just doesn’t seem to load them.
as the sbus reciver only uses TX you could set TX 2 or 4 up as sbus then that will free up TX and RX6 for your bluetooth. dont forget the solder the receiver sbus wire to the TX your chose.
Tried it just now, receiver does not seem to connect, i have soldered SBUS wire to TX2, Smart Port is on SoftSerial1, telemetry seems to work but SBUS does not. Changed port mapping to UART 2 for SerialRX. any other work around or am I doing something wrong here? Also did not see any TX4 pin layout, where is it located?
yep just tried myself every combo possible, with Inav not capable of resource mapping looks like its stuck on uart 6. also only one with inverter .
as you are using frsky check out this vid not checked out myself but worth a look, https://youtu.be/ZyKgBS9wmuc
or just bin the smart port i assume your only using for tele anyhow and youll get most of that from HUD.
I already saw this video prior to posting a comment here. Will not help unless I switch my Rx to r-xsr with an fport in which case it’ll free one soft serial which is being used for smart port. Seems like an expense here. However I wanted to put my x8r receiver to some use as it’s been sitting with me for a very long time unused. Anyway thanks for all your guidance. Cheers.
