  1. it saves you checking the location and putting it in your configuration.
  2. everyone knows where you are :-0

location is one thing, but i see that most of the modules have a PPS ( pulse per second ) module into them. Why is the timing so interesitng


#4

Because it allows the development of technologies in lorawan that depend on highly accurate timing: beaconing, geolocation, node’s opening additional recieve windows for downlink messages (without uplink dependency), etc.
