How To Get GPS Location From OpenWrt

Hello Team,

I am trying to get the Longitude and Latitude of my routers from my software running on OpenWrt. What is the best way to do this?

Get a USB GPS receiver.

See also https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/services/ntp/gps (for NTP, but also usefull to get location)

Thanks for the prompt response. Are there software alternatives instead of getting a new hardware?

How do you expect to gather GPS location data without GPS hardware?

--
technically speaking WiFi based geolocation is also possible, but a) you explicitly mentioned GPS and b) there is no free- or (router compatible) ready-made API for this (anymore), e.g. google only offers access to this with a paid API key subscription.

I will checkout the google API you mentioned to see what I can find out. Thanks
