what is the update rate of the GPS in the nRF9160? This is something that I couldn't find in the provided data sheet.
The GPS will be available for public sampling March 31st, and production ready July 31st.
thank you for the quick reply. I know that the GPS functionality isn't ready yet, I read the development status. However, I just wanted to know what could be the possible update rate of the GPS, to get the coordinates. Simply, if I would be able to obtain GPS position every two seconds etc.
I am asking because there are already some specs related to the GPS - time to fix, sensitivity, accuracy...
Yes, that's what I was talking about. There are some specs, but not related to the update rate if I understand them correctly.
There is something related in "Modes of operation" and "Performance" section:
So what is the minimum fixed interval that can be set? Does it have anything common with this?
Does it mean that I can only get GPS position every 5 seconds? It seems a little odd to me.
Could you give me some time to check out this information?
Of course, Andreas. Thank you for your effort!
I'm still waiting for an update regarding this information.
I hope this is OK for you.
No problem, Andreas! Will wait for the answer :)
I'm sill waiting for an update, I will come back to you as soon as I know more. I hope this is OK for you.
Sorry for the late reply, the question got a bit lost.
I have been told the following:
Modes of operation:
In the "continuous tracking" mode, you will continuously get a position once per second.
In the "position per fixed interval mode", the GPS will require 5 seconds to produce a fix (do a hot start), e.g. if the fix interval is configured to 2 minutes, the GPS will wake up after 1min55s, do a hot start, and produce the position on the 2 min mark. These figures are approximate, depending on LTE activity.
Sorry again for the late reply.
I am sorry, but I missed a notification on your answer. I am glad you made the effort to get the details. Thank you Andreas!
