The VIFLY GPS-mate is an external power module for your GPS. This power module is equipped with an on/off switch and a built-in VIFLY Finder 2 lost drone alarm. The GPS never loses power until the switch is turned off, so pilots never need to complete another fix for the whole flying session.
Why did we design GPS-mate?
Most drone pilots have a problem when using the GPS on their drones. GPS modules are slow and get interference. For this to be fixed, a pilot must wait many minutes for a GPS fix. To do this, everything must be powered, which drains the battery and causes extra interference. It also has the potential risk to cause overheating issues to your quad components. In addition, when you finish a flight cycle and change the quad battery, the GPS needs to get a hot-start fix as the quad battery is disconnected. We want to fix the pain, so we designed and produced the GPS-mate, the external power module just for GPS.

What can GPS-mate do?
VIFLY GPS-mate is an external power module just for GPS, there is a switch to turn on and off the unit. With this device, once the pilot wants to fly, he flips the switch and only the GPS gets powered. When the GPS fix is finished, the pilot connects the drone LiPo. The drone LiPo powers the drone, and recharges the GPS battery. The GPS never loses power until the switch is turned off, so pilots never need to complete another fix for the whole session.
We also embedded a VIFLY Finder 2 function into this device, which can work as a standard buzzer that is controlled via your radio when the quad battery is connected. It can also work as a standalone buzzer that helps you find the lost drone when the main battery has been ejected.
