GPS function in C20, C22 and Point

In C20, C22 and Point:

  • The GPS-functionality is at present available for C20, C22 and Point (not the Data loggers, nor C10/C12), and was introduced with FW-revision 2.0.0 (2018-12-06).

  • Due to the limitation of the GPS system the device normally needs to be outside to receive a good position (or close to a window).

  • Every time monitoring is started, the internal GPS-unit is activated for some minutes to receive a position. The GPS position is also updated everyday at 5:00 AM.

  • The GPS position can be visualized in INFRA Net, see further down.

  • If the device is set in Flight mode, the GPS-functionality is disabled. This means that if for example Monitoring is started in Flight mode, and normal mode is set after some minutes or later, a GPS position will not be recieved until Monitoring is restarted.
