Can I receive GPS location over the LoraWan dongle?

At this moment I use a Victron LoraWan dongle to receive information from the BMV battery monitor to the VRM portal. Now I also want the location of my boat is that possible with the same LoraWan dongle?

It is not compatible with any GPS products. Only the products listed in the manual ate compatible and these ones do not gather GPS information either.

Thank you for your clear answer!


Is it possible to add a GPS location in the VRM Portal parallel on the LoraWan data?

So I can see the battery status in the same installation as the location?

You can put your Victron Device side-by-side with a one GPS LoRaWAN device that both devices will be able to send Victron Devices information and location information, both using the same LoRaWAN Gateway.
