Topic: Retranslator Protocol ByteOrder
I am currently implementing the retranslator protocol (https://gurtam.com/en/gps-hardware/soft … translator) within a java application to receive location information.
Why does the ByteOrder change within one message? I tested with the example message provided in the protocol documentation and eventually believe that I figured it out so that:
- Package size and controller's identifier are in Little Endian
- UTC time until including block name are in Big Endian
- Longitude, Latitude and Altitude are in Little Endian
- Everything else is in Big Endian again.
Wouldn't it be useful to add these kind of informations to the protocol documentation?
