Verizon Jetpack® 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi® 6620L - GPS over Wi-Fi

Note Notes:

  • The GPS over Wi-Fi setting allows the MiFi device to provide a GPS (NMEA) stream to a Windows or Mac computer.
    • This is only useful if running an app that is capable of utilizing a NMEA GPS stream (e.g., Microsoft Streets & Trips, etc.).
  • To utilize GPS over Wi-Fi, a driver must be installed on the computer.

  1. Access the Admin Web Interface.
  2. From the left menu, click Jetpack Settings Settings icon (located on the left).
  3. From the Jetpack tab, click GPS.
  4. Slide the switch to turn ON or OFF.
    Note If presented, review the agreement then click Confirm to continue.
  5. Click Save Changes (located on the bottom-right).
  6. If GPS over Wi-Fi (NMEA) is on, launch the GPS-enabled app on the computer then configure it to utilize a NMEA port or GPS receiver.
    Note Refer to the app's help menu or contact the app developer for assistance.
    Note Once the app has found the NMEA port / GPS receiver, it should report "Waiting for your location" or similar until a GPS fix is obtained. After that, it uses or displays the current GPS location.
