Using only GPS2

Greetings,

We have in our possession a GPS Here with a GPS2 type pin connector (6 pins). We are trying to configure ardupilot parameters in order to use GPS2 only.

Our params are:

GPS_PRIMARY = 1
GPS_TYPE = 0
GPS_TYPE2 = 1
GPS_AUTO_SWITCH = 0
SERIAL4_PROTOCOL = 5

On mission planner HUD it displays both GPSs with a red color:
GPS: NO GPS
GPS2: 3D FIX

Is this normal? Can we completely remove GPS from main screen and only keep GPS2 since we don’t have dual GPS? Is the red color a concern?

EDIT: We use a Pixhawk Cube Black.

Many thanks.

Have you tired setting it the other way by setting GPS_TYPE=1 and setting GPS_TYPE2=0. it doesn’t really matter what port it is hooked to as long as you have the correct serial port configured for GPS it will find it and you should be able just to config it to use gps_type and leave the other disabled. red color should be of no concern as long as you have it turned off and the other configured correctly
