Location based ads
« on: March 14, 2018, 10:01:00 AM »
Hello, I am trying to setup my signage player to run location based ads.

i am trying to follow this tutoril; digitalsignage.com/_html/video_tutorials.html?videoNumber=locationBased

But all it does is show how its setup, but no instructions on how to setup the raspberry pi for location services.

I got the raspberry pi image from digitalsignage, but it looks like it is for p2 and not pi3. it freezes up before loading when i try it on pi3.

I have gps services working on my pi right now without the image, i need to know what are the next steps to take to send the gps location to my signage player.

you will need to simply use the sendCommand.js to send posts to the SignagePlayer open port.
please visit live chat (possibly ask for Sherwin for more instructions)
