Hi, I appreciate your fast response on this.

I am using the Xsense MTi-G710 with all outputs enabled. Inside the building without a GPS fix everything is fine. Once I get outside to open sky and get a fix, the driver fails showing this message:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/renawi/catkin_ws/src/ethzasl_xsens_driver/nodes/", line 717, in <module> main() File "/home/renawi/catkin_ws/src/ethzasl_xsens_driver/nodes/", line 713, in main driver.spin() File "/home/renawi/catkin_ws/src/ethzasl_xsens_driver/nodes/", line 122, in spin self.spin_once() File "/home/renawi/catkin_ws/src/ethzasl_xsens_driver/nodes/", line 629, in spin_once data = File "/home/renawi/catkin_ws/src/ethzasl_xsens_driver/nodes/", line 632, in read_measurement return self.parse_MTData2(data) File "/home/renawi/catkin_ws/src/ethzasl_xsens_driver/nodes/", line 912, in parse_MTData2 raise MTException("fixed point precision not supported.") mtdef.MTException: fixed point precision not supported.

Any help?

Fixed! I changed the settings of the GPS data to floating point.

Where and how did you change it?

I Installed the Xsense manager on a windows PC and connected the sensor to it. There you find an option to change thr GPS data type.
