I’m in the middle of building sort of a GPS tracker type device. I have a Boron and an Ultimate GPS Featherwing. My questions right now revolve around how to limit battery consumption and also data usage. I understand at this time that I apparently can’t use sleep modes on the Boron.
My confusion revolves around Cellular.off(). I intend to upload coordinates occasionally (1-15 minutes possibly depending on location difference). If I turn off the cellular during these intervals, do I have to spend the 4400 bytes required to reconnect to the cloud? Or will my session be saved?
Is the penalty in both data and mA greater if I turn the radio off and on, or just leave it be?
