Sending Location Data via MQTT


I am testing an new device which is based on our own hardware design and I’m trying to send location data via MQTT and get a map view in Cayenne. At the moment I’m sending the location data to the topic “…/data/location” and sending it as;


It’s currently displaying as a data point instead of a map so obviously the /data topic is not correct.

  1. What topic should I be sending location data to to get it to display as a map?
  2. Can I send both lat and long in one MQTT packet?

I can’t see any map widget under the Custom Widgets section so how do I place a map?

Map Widget is not yet supported for MQTT.
Map Widget is supported only for Lora devices.
