Summary[edit | edit source]

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based radionavigation system. This page is an overview of the GPS service in RUTX11 routers.

The information in this page is updated in accordance with the RUTX_R_00.01.06 firmware version.

Map[edit | edit source]

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 router and enable GPS in the General page.

The figure below is an example of the Map page:

General[edit | edit source]

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 router has obtained a GPS fix. It is very important to attach the GPS antenna on the router and place it outside (not inside of a building). The router 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:

Networking rutx manual gps general v2.png

Field Value Description
Enabled off | on; default: off Turns the GPS service on or off.
Galileo NMEA support* off | on; default: off Turns support for Galileo satellites on or off.
Glonass NMEA support* off | on; default: off Turns support for Glonass satellites on or off.
BeiDou NMEA support* off | on; default: off Turns support for BeiDou satellites on or off.

*Changing these options requires a modem reboot. Therefore, if you make changes to these options and save them, the router will lose cellular connectivity for about 30 seconds.

NMEA[edit | edit source]

The NMEA page is used to configure settings related to NMEA sentence collecting and forwarding.

NMEA forwarding[edit | edit source]


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:

AVL[edit | edit source]

The AVL page is used to set up GPS data sending to an AVL server.

AVL server settings[edit | edit source]


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:

Networking rutx manual gps avl avl server settings v2.png

Field Value Description
Enabled off | on; default: off Turns data sending to AVL server on or off.
Hostname ip | host; default: 192.168.1.5 IP address or hostname of an AVL server.
Port integer [0..65535]; default: 8501 TCP/UDP port number of the AVL server to which the router will be connecting.
Protocol TCP | UDP; Default: TCP Protocol that will be used for communication with the AVL server.

Main rule[edit | edit source]


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.

Networking rutx manual gps avl main rule v1.png

Field Value Description
Enable off | on; default: on Turns the main rule on or off.
Rule priority Low priority level | High priority level | Panic priority level | Security priority level; default: Low priority level The rule's priority. Different priority settings add different flags to event packets, so they can be displayed differently in the receiving system. The router sends data of higher priority first. Priority levels from highest to lowest are as follows:
  1. Security
  2. Panic
  3. High
  4. Low
Collect period integer [1..999999]; default: 5 How often (in seconds) data will be collected.

GPS Geofencing[edit | edit source]

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:

Field Value Description
Enable off | on; default: off Turns the Geofence rule on or off.
Longitude (X) degrees [-180.000000..180.000000]; default: 0.000000 East-west position of a point on the Earth's surface. Combining this and the Latitude information will produce a point on the world map that will serve as the center of the geofence area.
Latitude (Y) degrees [-90.000000..90.000000]; default: 0.000000 North-south position of a point on the Earth's surface. Combining this and the Longitude information will produce a point on the world map that will serve as the center of the geofence area.
Radius integer [1..999999]; default: 200 Radius (in meters) of the geofence area.
Generate event on Exit | Enter | Enter/exit; default: Exit Specifies whether the rule should be triggered when the device enters the geofence area, leaves it or on both events.
Get current coordinates - (interactive button) Obtains the device's current coordinates and places them in the Longitude and Latitude fields.
