Is it possible to get GPS data without using a GPS, but instead using the internet provided from a 3G or 4G connection to get GPS data?
Maybe if you used the HTML5 geolocation API somehow?
I have already used a GPS module together with a GSM modem, but i only used the GSM modem for SMS and not potential internet capabilities.
The beneftis from this , besides cost, would be a smaller program, intended for arduino nano, as TInyGPS and TinyGPS++ libraries are already big enough.
So my question really is twofold: 1. Is there any way to utilize the internet connection from GSM modems (besides the obvious SMS/call function)? 2. Is there a way to utilize the internet connection to get GPS data, without using an actual GPS module?
