Verizon Jetpack® MiFi® 8800L - 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 menu, click Jetpack Settings.
  3. Click GPS (upper-right).
  4. If necessary, click the GPS switch to turn on.
    Note If prompted, read the disclaimer info then tap Confirm to continue.
  5. If desired, click the Turn GPS off when the Jetpack restarts switch to turn on or off.
  6. Click the Turn on GPS over Wi-Fi switch to turn on or off.
    Note If needed click Download GPS over Wi-Fi Drivers and follow step-by-step instructions to install drivers on the connected Windows device.
  7. If applicable, enter the port number.
    Note Typically the port number should not be changed.
  8. Once location is acquired, you can view the following:
    • Latitude
    • Longitude
    • Altitude
    • Accuracy
    • Map or Satelite view of location

Note If GPS over Wi-Fi (NMEA) is enabled, launch the GPS-enabled app on the Windows 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 shows 'Searching/Waiting for your location' until a GPS fix is obtained then displays the current GPS location.
