Power consumption for Ublox NEO-M8U GPS


#1

Hi!

Could you provide some ballpark values for current drawn by your GPS modules with 3.3V and/or 5V? (Ublox NEO-M8N GPS with compass is especially interesting for me).

I’m trying to find out the smallest possible voltage regulator that would still be able to handle your GPS.

Thanks in advance

According to datasheet, power consumption is 29 mA @ 3V (https://www.u-blox.com/sites/default/files/NEO-M8U_ProductSummary_(UBX-15013483).pdf).
