Hei guys,

My car is at version 2018.10 and when analysing the API i found these new fields:

"native_latitude" = "60.2";
"native_location_supported" = 1;

"native_longitude" = "24.1";
"native_type" = wgs;


I cannot test now, but can someone test that these fields keep updating while the car is being towed on a flatbad, on a bot or on a train?

Im speculating that these values update even if the wheels are not rolling.

These were present from at least 2018.4.1 (which is when I noticed them), possibly a little earlier. But they were not in 2017.50.3. Model S REST API Don't know what the purpose is yet though.

I didnt know there was thread tracking this changes.
Any way we can use this thread to understand what do these values mean. During the summer i will take my car on a boat, i can test my theory. But it would be nice to test this earlier.

What API endpoint / method is used to get the location data?
