I upgraded from LTE7480 to NR7101 after 5G came available to my location. Is there a way to use the GNSS functionality of the device in some fashion? Ie. Is it possible to get location or time data (NMEA messages) to devices on the local network? I tried to search for info but couldn't find any.

    There is no way to directly output NMEA messages from the NR7101's GNSS receiver to devices on the local network. However, there are a few workarounds that you can use.

    One option is to use a third-party application to bridge the gap between the NR7101's GNSS receiver and your local network. For example, you could use the following steps:

    Install a third-party GNSS application on the NR7101, such as GPSD or NTRIP Client.
    Configure the third-party application to output NMEA messages to a TCP port on the NR7101.
    Set up a TCP port forwarding rule on the NR7101 to forward the NMEA messages to a device on your local network.
    On the device on your local network, run a program that can listen for and decode NMEA messages, such as a GPS mapping software or a GNSS receiver.

    Hi bappelsin,

    GNSS data is available at the bottom of Cellular Info page (Home page > Cellular Info).
