GPS data to OpenMV

Hi everyone. I wonder if it is possible for Open MV 7H connected via serial4 on my Pixhawk 2.4.8 to receive actual GPS data? If it is, how could I provide it?

Yes, via MAVLink. OpenMV has several examples: openmv/scripts/examples/07-Interface-Library/02-MAVLink at master · openmv/openmv · GitHub

Thank you, I’ll try it soon

If somebody needs this-
The easiest way to connect GPS module to OpenMV cam is not to use flight controller at all. I performed it via cam’s UART. The only thing I needed is to solder a couple of wires to my GPS and then connect them to camera

Care to share why you would want GPS info for OpenMV ?

Just part of engineering student’s competition. The task is to find words on the ground, then identify and save them to the SD-card with their locations
