Currently u-blox provides two services targeted to location applications: Multi GNSS AssistNow and CellLocate.
In this guide we will look at the general aspects of the services and in particular on how to enable the services in the platform and how to create and manage the credentials (tokens) needed for accessing the service.
Multi GNSS AssistNow
Multi GNSS AssistNow or MGA, is an assisted GNSS service to enable the GNSS receivers to have a shorter Time To First Fix (TTFF) and a more accurate initial position. The service has two flavors: the online version to provide the assisted data in real time with a short validity, and the offline version to provide the predictions that can be used by the receivers for a longer time. For more details about the service, please download the AssistNow product summary here.
CellLocate is a mobile network-based location service making position available in areas where GNSS is poor or absent, or whenever the devices do not have GNSS receivers. The service client is embedded on all u-blox cellular products thus making the integration effortless. For more details about the service, please download the CellLocate product summary here.
