The 3DM-GX5 is the latest generation of the very popular 3DM-GX series of IMU, VG, AHRS, and GNSS-INS inertial sensors. This is truly a “drop-in” replacement for the previous-generation GX4 inertial sensors, making it extremely simple to upgrade. However, there are a few key performance and API improvements that you should know about to extract the best performance from the GX5 series.

Performance differences include:

  • Better accelerometers
  • Better gyro performance
  • Multi-constellation GNSS tracking
  • Auto-Adaptive EKF
  • Auto-calibrating magnetometer
  • Different range options
