The navigation function handles all the data associated with GPS positioning, vehicle movement data and displays the position on a street level map.
Using the built in navigation functions you are able to validate the data before it gets written, decide when and if or how often you want to transmit the navigation data. This type of functionality saves cost as no unnecessary data is being stored or transmitted.
By issuing the nav_ping command you can request vehicle position or group of vehicles in real time. This will instruct the unit to send all data regarding the vehicle navigation and movement to the output option.
The nav_ping the data that is transmitted are:
Speed or natilus “knots”
Course (360 degrees)
ValidData (this is an indicator of the GPS validity “correctness” depending on the satellite reception)
