Verizon Jetpack® MiFi® 7730L - 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.
  3. From the Jetpack tab, click GPS (located in the upper-right).
  4. If necessary, tap the GPS switch to turn on.
    Note If prompted, tap Confirm.

Note Once the app has found the NMEA port / GPS receiver, it shows 'Searching/Waiting for your location' until a GPS fix is obtained then displays the current GPS location.
