Thanks for your suggestion … I added “card.motion” to my monitoring & observed the “count” field bumped with every Notecard “jiggle” as indicated.
Our configuration feeds serial GPS (NMEA) data (now from a PC simulator) into the AUX RX/TX Notecard lines … with the AUX_EN set HI … the appropriate setup commands are issued. The “location” command tracks the incoming GPS data as expected … I have a few more questions .
- Is the GPS Periodic mode irrelevant when using external GPS fed data?
- If the GPS simulator is disabled (no incoming NMEA data into AUX_RX), I found that the card.motion will still track Notecard “movement” … but there appears to be no indication of the device “failure” timeout? We’d like to feed back to the ‘end-user’ this error condition … vs just reporting the “same” lat/lon position. In fact, the Notecard could move (with “card.motion” bumping “count”) … yet the L/L would not change which could be somewhat misleading.
regards, Rich …
