Unpowered Asset Gateways (AGs), such as the AG45, AG46, and AG51, use GPS to record and report the device location during check-in. When the AG is unable to obtain a GPS signal, it uses an approximate location using the nearest cell tower to connect for check-in.
The error range for the cell-based location can vary from a 0.1-1.5 mile radius. Location accuracy can diminish in any of following circumstances:
Satellite signal is obstructed. Common obstructions include buildings, bridges, metallic structures (such as within metal trailers), and trees or the AG is indoor or underground.
Signal is reflecting on a nearby building or wall.
Interference in signal due to radio interference or jamming.
Interference from major solar storms.
Satellite maintenance or maneuvers causing temporary gaps in coverage.
