Return whether the device uses a legacy software version.
According to the specification some devices use different enumerated values for fix in older software versions. However, this list of devices is ambiguous (eTrex Summit is named twice) and doesn’t include product ID’s. Therefore, we have no reliable way to ascertain whether the device is legacy or not.
This method checks the device name and software version in the product description. The list of devices and the last software version in which these different values are used is:
eTrex Summit Japanese
Return the altitude above mean sea level.
To find the altitude above mean sea level, add
msl_hght(height of the WGS 84 ellipsoid above mean sea level) to
alt(altitude above the WGS 84 ellipsoid).
Return a datetime object of the time.
Return the fix value.
The default enumerated values for the
fixmember of the D800 PVT are shown below. It is important for the host to inspect this value to ensure that other data members in the D800 PVT are valid. No indication is given as to whether the device is in simulator mode versus having an actual position fix.
Some legacy devices use values for fix that are one more than the default.
