ogps Location Accuracy Fixed!


  • administrators

    Hi everyone,
    Just a quick update: we've fixed the latitude and longitude inaccuracy issue in ogps!

    How to Get the Updated Package:
    If you do not have ogps installed:

    opkg update
    opkg install ogps
    

    If you already have it installed:

    opkg update
    opkg upgrade ogps
    

    Run opkg list-installed | grep gps to check if you have the updated version. The output should be:

    root@Omega-296A:~# opkg list-installed | grep gps
    ogps - 2017-04-20-1
    

    The Fix:
    First we updated ogps to match the latest code from the ugps OpenWRT repo to get all of the latest upstream fixes.
    Then it was just a matter of fixing the order of operations when converting the dms (degree, minute, second) location measurements to decimal. See the commit for details.



  • Location error corrected from about 10 km east to 30m north. Thanks :)
    Until now, I getting a data from unit directly.
