How to update device GPS state via MQTT?

#1

Hi

I created a property type GPS String named GPS

then I send a payload to topic deviceId/state via MQTT

that looks like this

{“data”:{“GPS”:"$GNGGA,203315.00,3243.91473,N,03510.22142,E,1,12,0.84,172.0,M,18.6,M,*4E\r\n"}}

and I get a this error, A provided attribute is not defined on the device, or the data type is incorrect.

when I send the payload to a string type property it works.

What am I missing here?

Based on the screenshot, it looks like you’re attempting to send data to the attributed named GNGGA instead of the attributed named GPS. I’d recommend double checking the MQTT client code to ensure the attribute name is correctly set.

We currently support GPS strings in $GPGLL and $GPGGA formats. We don’t support the $GNGGA format. You’ll have to convert your GPS data one of those formats.
