GPS, NMEA 0183, Simple Text Output Protocol
Global Positioning System (GPS) is used for determining precise location of a GPS receiver.
|enabled (yes | no; Default: no)||Whether GPS is enabled|
|port (string; Default: )||Name of the USB/Serial port where GPS receiver is connected|
|channel (integer [0..4294967295]; Default: 0)||Port channel used by device|
|init-channel (integer [0..4294967295]; Default: )||Channel for init-string execution|
|init-string (string; Default: )||AT init string for GPS initialization|
|set-system-time (yes | no; Default: no)||Whether to set router's date and time to one received from GPS.|
/system gps monitor
This command is used for monitoring the data received from a GPS receiver
|date-and-time (date)||Date and time received from GPS|
|latitude (none | string)||Latitude in DM (Degrees Minute decimal) format|
|longitude (none | string)||Longitude in DM (Degrees Minute decimal) format|
|speed (none | string)||Current moving speed of the GPS unit|
|bearing (none | string)||The compass direction toward which a GPS is moving|
|valid (yes | no)|
|satellites (integer)||Number of satellites seen by the device.|
Note: The time is not stratum 1 as RouterBOARD devices do not have PPS implemented
Adjust port settings specific for your device

Note that sometimes in order to make GPS module to be recognized under RouterOS you need to change the baud-rate setting in the '/port' menu.
On some modems with GPS support you need to send multiple init commands for the continuous GPS monitoring, for example, for Huawei cards you need to send "AT^WPDST=1,AT^WPDGP" init string to get continuous monitoring.
