Units added to GMS message


The GMS message has an added unit of ‘s’ in copter 4.5. As GMS stands for milli-seconds since GPS week, this causes confusion to the user as the new unit is now ‘s’ (seconds).
Will this issue be fixed or is it something the user has to adjust to.



Hello @Dhananjay2177 welcome to the community

Does it also have a multiplier of 10e-3 ?

Yes it has the multiplier.

That multiplier explains that the value must be multiplied by 10e-3 before being interpreted as seconds.

Thanks for the reply. The confusion is why the units of seconds was introduced in copter4.5 . GMS has by default milliseconds as the units.
