The default settings are 4 GPS fixes/hour + accelerometer data frame, saving those locally and 1 data transmission of those/hour. Must fit like this. In Alarm mode when cat is lost as often as is allowed.
Later on we hope that geolocation by TDOA / RSSI in KPN / TTN LoRa network is good enough to omit the GPS receiver.

If you read between the lines, Page 5 nicely describes the advantage of LoRa vs. SigFox ...
SigFox uses the 1% duty cycle limitation on all channels. This limitation
boils down to the maximum of 140 frames of 12 bytes per device per day
For LoRa, the 869.4 to 869.65 band allows for 10% duty cycling, which means 10x more air time just in this band.
In the typical gateway scenario with one channel in the 10% band, 3
channels in 1% band and 2 channels in 0.1%, there is 13.2x more air time
available for LoRa than for SixFox!"
