Hi, I'm new to Teltonika and have a question regarding my RUTX11 running firmware version RUTX_R_00.02.06.1. When I view the location of the RUTX11 in PMS using devices/device details/location the shown map location is wrong by about 200 meters when compared to looking directly at the RUTX11 web UI using services/GPS/map. The direct device location is correct. How can I correct this discrepancy?

Thanks for your help

Came here as I've just noticed the map pin on RMS is way off. I'm literally paying for RMS for this only reason. I'd like to track the location of my van.

I'm surprised this appears to be a simple rounding issue and it still hasn't been fixed 10 months after it was discovered.

Hi,

Is the device showing a more accurate location in its WebUI or is it also over 200 metres from the spot it should be?

Hi EB,

Yes the WebUI is very accurate. I think I may have identified the problem, but not a solution. RMS appears to be rounding the location down to 3 decimal place but the WebUI shows 6 decimal places. RMS is showing Lat xx.085 and Long xxx.69 but the WebUI is showing xx.085369 and xxx.688025. Any ideas?

Hi,

In that case, I believe it's not really possible to identify this as an issue because RMS GPS location function isn't for "exact location" purpose.

If you'll check GPS monitoring, you can set it to refresh at a minutes (or hours) rate and you would not get an exact location with that anyways. So forcing RMS to check and point you at the exact xx.xxxxxx123 coordinate every X seconds would be overkill for so many devices in the system. Basically, that map is for you to navigate easier through your devices if you know their locations around the world.

Hi,

Thanks for your response. Whilst I do understand that that RMS is not intended to be a real time tracking system I do not agree that RMS is not intended to show accurate data as sent by monitored devices. What about other monitored data streams, are these accurate or are they also approximated? RMS has functionality to display location history and it would be good if this could be relied upon as being accurate. All that I am saying is that RMS should show the same level of accuracy as the monitored device not an approximation.

Hi,

I will send this as a suggestion to our RMS development apartment.

Thanks for that.

In the mean time can I use a service such as GPS-server.net to record the location of the device? Do I do this by forwarding NMEA?
