Yes I was talking about the GPS in FR.

I was able to do serial communication using python code and a USB to serial

What I am asking is, can I get the NMEA sentences from the GPS on FR via a
USB to Serial converter connected to the FR's USB port and the other end to
the laptop? (should I run a python code on FR to do this?)

Please tell me how to do this?

Thanks and Regards
