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

We have also created an in-depth article about live GPS tracking, using scripting and a web server: Manual:GPS-tracking.
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.
