Compact u-blox 7 GPS/GNSS modules
The MAX-7 series is the newest family of standalone GPS/GNSS modules from u-blox. With the exceptional performance of the u-blox 7 multi-GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS and SBAS) engine, the MAX-7 series delivers high sensitivity and minimal acquisition times in the ultra compact MAX form factor.

The MAX-7 series provides maximum sensitivity while maintaining low system power. The MAX-7C is optimized for cost sensitive applications. The MAX-7Q provides best performance and lowest power, while the MAX-7W provides best performance and is optimized for active antennas. The industry proven MAX form factor allows easy migration from MAX-6 modules. Sophisticated RF-architecture and interference suppression ensure maximum performance even in GPS-hostile environments.
