GPS over Ethernet and/or WiFi

Fri Aug 16, 2019 12:03 pm

I am using a LtAP mini and i'm a beginner on working with RouterOS and sadly i'm not a professional in working with Linux based systems in general.
So i hope that anyone can give me guidance on how to my task.

I want to use the Route to receive the GPS Position and then i want to send the GPS-Data (in NMEA Format) over the Ethernet and/or the WiFi to another device with a navigation software so that the navigation software can receive the position over TCP or UDP on a specific port (usually port 10110 is used for NMEA data).

Can someone tell me how to configure the routerOS to do this?

Sorry, but i don't see where the part is to set the router to send the serial data from gps over tcp....

It seems that this is an example to send data with http to a specific receiver. But that's not what i want to do...

I have a navigation software which is running on a windows tablet and in this software i can set up a tcp or udp connection to get the position with NMEA data.
My question is what i have to do that any device which is connected to the router (with ethernet or wifi) can receive the gps data from the ip-adress of the router on a specific port?

You can access the NMEA data like this maybe:

Maybe MikroTik should add a "gpsd" package for RouterOS. That will make it much easier to use and share the GPS capability of the devices.
