Cube Orange and Serial5

I try to get a signal out of the serial5 port wich is labelled as “CONS”. Either a Mavlink or NMEA out or I try to connect a Rangefinder over it.
Whatever i try, nothing works.
In the wiki I found out that with the new boards this port is reserved for ADSB

Do I have any Chance to use that Port for other UART devices then ADSB?
Thanks in Advance

Hi, had the same issue, in an answer on Cubepilot forum they explain that it’s not possible without some hardware change
EDIT: In my case I made some changes like change the lidar to I2C and free up the telem2

Right Gal, I got the same answer from Cubepilot.
They also advise me to use the CAN for the GPS. But as far as I know I cant use the " [Here+ V2 Rover (M8P)] on CAN.
the Ainstein Lidar im using doesnt support IC2.:frowning:

And telem1 and 2 already used. Bummer, sorry I can’t help more

Matt_C, thanks for the Idea wih the CAN Node. I´m gonna test it for sure. Sounds to be a Solution for alot of Problems.
With the Here+ Im thinkink a bit diffren. The first virsion, u are right, that was crap. But im more than happy with the V2. Im working sometimes for Geologists and they do have got this really expensive GPS Systems with a paid Correction. And they are always quite happy how precisious my System is (Base / Rover Here+V2) BUT: The Position for the Base I always get from them.
