What is the proper rate for GPS position updates?

Postby Bernd Welter » Fri Apr 27, 2018 10:51 am

Hi there,

a customer of mine wants a recommendation for the GPS position update frequency.

As far as I know it doesn't make sense to perform those updates every few seconds.

Is there any generic recommendation for the update interval?

Does it make a difference whether we check
  • a long distance tour between cities
  • a last mile tour with few hundred meters between hundred stops
