RAK7205 LoRa® Tracker Node
The RAK7205 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
Dears, Is this product able to be used with a Lorawan Gateway? If not, have your company such product? Thanks
This as well as all our LoRa Nodes work with LoRaWAN Gateways that support LoRaWAN protocol stack 1.0.2 or higher.
In addition we offer LoRaWAN Gateways as well, please check our offerings here: https://store.rakwireless.com/collections/lorawan-gateways-concentrators
What environmental sensor(s) are included in this kit?
The board itself (mounted in the box) has a built-in (soldered) BME680 environmental unit from Bosch.
Is there a programmable microcontroller included in the rak811 or rak5205 in this package, or do i need to combine this with an arduino or similar in order to have a programmable IoT endpoint?
Both products have STM32L151 builtin. You can use it or an external MCU.
Where is the source code located at so I can review?
The latest firmware source code is not available. You can use the RUI in order to build your code. Please take a look at the forum thread.
Is it possible to develop custom application firmware ? Do you provide compiler toolchain/IDE for the development ?
Right now, the only supported one is GCC.
Question: Although on this web page, the "Key Features" indicates battery is included but the "Packing" does not indicate anything about the battery. Is the battery included in the package and what is the mAhr rating of the battery? Suggestion: On the "Product Description" on this page, the LoRa chip mentioned as RAK881 should actually read as RAK811, I guess.
Indeed you are right, the errors have been fixed. The battery is 3200mAh.
Can not see the RAK7205 in documents link
You can refer to the following documentation folder for information on RAK7205. The board itself is a RAK5205. https://downloads.rakwireless.com/en/LoRa/WisTrio-LoRa-RAK5205/
