problem with getGpsPos(), only show latitude

Post by jotomas »

Hi, im trying a script on lua, with &#65279;getGpsPos(), but it only show me the latitude with 1 decimal.

the script:

function onTick()
a = &#65279;getGpsPos()

and i get on the consoloe
-33.5, only that

on dashboard, this is my latitude and longitude
-33.499943 and -70.524559
firmware mk2 v2.8.3

also i have problem with getGpsTime(), that not show me the time

maybe its a bug of lua?

Sorry this is coming so late.

You need to call it this way

lat, lon = getGpsPos() ... sPos.28.29

As you can see, it is returning two values.

Hope this helps; please let us know if we can help further!
