Positioning-universal protocol

Parse and decode Positioning Universal binary messages into JSON. Get the parsed data from Positioning Universal devices via REST API and MQTT.
flespi parses the Positioning-universal protocol messages into a JSON object with the fields listed below in the Parameters tab.

To connect your tracker using the Positioning Universal protocol, you need to have a positioning-universal channel created first.

Point your tracker to the channel's domain name:port via SMS or configuration tool provided by the vendor.

Then create a device instance for your tracker and use a 15-character IMEI (usually specified on the tracker casing) in the ident field.

Use the Toolbox tab on the device screen to check if the messages are coming.

It is possible to configure Positioning Universal devices OTA using the flespi web-based configurator tool. To connect Positioning Universal to Wialon or another platform via flespi please read this article.
