PRTG Mobile Probe Altitude




Why the altitude is set to 0? I put in 'settings' the parameters like default position (is about 200 meters). I'm using Geo Maps (reccomended) following the guide


Best regards

Dear Carlo,

Thank you for your KB-Post. This actually depends on the altitude returned by your sensor.

best regards.

The default location does not have an altitude setting actually, it's just 2 D. Can you please upload & share some screenshots showing the data table of the sensor with the location data, and also screenshots showing the map then?
