The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based radionavigation system. This page is an overview of the GPS service in RUTX11 devices.
If you’re having trouble finding this page or some of the parameters described here on your device’s WebUI, you should turn on “Advanced WebUI” mode. You can do that by clicking the “Basic” button under “Mode”, which is located at the top-right corner of the WebUI.
The Map page displays the device’s current coordinates and position on the map. To see the device’s location on the map, make sure to attach the GPS antenna on the device and enable GPS in the General page.
The figure below is an example of the Map page:
The General is used to enable the GPS service and the support for different types satellites. Once you turn on GPS, you can check the Map page in order to see if the device has obtained a GPS fix. It is very important to attach the GPS antenna on the device and place it outside (not inside of a building). The device will not be likely to obtain a GPS fix otherwise.
The figure below is an example of the General page and the table below provides information on the fields contained in that page:
*Changing these options requires a modem reboot. Therefore, if you make changes to these options and save them, the device will lose cellular connectivity for about 30 seconds.
The NMEA page is used to configure settings related to NMEA sentence collecting and forwarding.
The NMEA forwarding section is used to configure and enable NMEA forwarding. The figure below is an example of the NMEA forwarding section and the table below provides information on the fields contained in that section:
The device caches NMEA forwarding information if NMEA forwarding is enabled. This section is used to select the memory type where the cache will be stored and the maximum amount of data that will be saved:
The NMEA collecting section is used to enable NMEA sentence gathering and storing. The figure below is an example of the NMEA collecting section and the table below provides information on the fields contained in that section:
The NMEA sentence settings section provides the possibility to configure which NMEA sentences will be forwarded or collected and at what frequency. The figure below is an example of the NMEA sentence settings section and the table below provides information on the fields contained in that section:
NMEA sentence reference table:
The HTTPS page can be used to configure data sending to an HTTP(S) server.
The HTTPS/HTTP Server Settings section is used to enable GPS data sending to an HTTP or HTTPS server.
The TAVL settings section is used to select which data will be sent to the TAVL server:
The AVL page is used to set up GPS data sending to an AVL server.
The AVL server settings section is used to configure the main parameters of data sending to an AVL server. The figure below is an example of the AVL Server Settings section and the table below provides information on the fields contained in that section:
The Main rule section defines how and when GPS data will be collected and sent to a specified AVL server. Refer to the figure and table below for information on the configuration fields of Main Rule.
The Secondary rules section provides you with the possibility to create additional data sending rules. The difference from the main rule is that the secondary rules only send data when the device uses a specified type of WAN and when the digital isolated output is in the specified state.
Refer to the figure and table below for information on the configuration fields of the Secondary rules section.
A geofence is a virtually defined boundary for a real-world geographic area. The GPS Geofencing page provides you with the possibility to set this custom area and apply rules that will inform you when the device leaves or enters the geofence.
To create a new geofence area, enter a custom name for it and click the ‘Add’ button. A new geofence area configuration with the given name should appear in the “Geofencing” list. Click the button that looks like a pencil next to it to begin editing.
The figure below is an example of GPS Geofencing configuration and the table below provides information related to that configuration:
