RAK5205 LoRa® Tracker Board
The RAK5205 LoRa® Tracker Board is built upon the RAK811. At its core is an STM32L1 microcontroller driving Semtech’s SX1276/78 LoRa® chip.
GPS is present as well as a number of sensors. The aforementioned makes the board suitable for rapid application development, such as asset tracking, vehicle management, location-based services, environmental monitoring, etc. Additionally, because of its low power consumption in sleep mode, it can provide a long-lasting solution for any battery-powered project.
The support for AT commands makes configuration a breeze. For advanced users is open source support in case a custom firmware is required.

Questions and Answers
Hi, what sort of antenna does the IPEX variant come with?
You can check the link below:
This is for a gateway kit, however, the antennas should be the same as the ones shown in the first image.
Hello, The GPS for this device is giving a location which is 500 meters away from the real location. I tried in open field and lat/long reading is off by 500 meters Is there anyway to adjust this?
For questions of this nature please ask in the forum.
