Post subject:  GPS location available on CAN bus?

Since Car-net is stupidly expensive for what it is and a flaming pile of poo, I'm toying with the idea of DIYing my own for the two things I actually care about, SOC and GPS location. I figure that with a bluetooth OBD2 dongle and a small microcontroller with bluetooth and LTE connectivity, I can easily poll those data items and post them to a cloud service.

So, does anyone know if GPS location is available on CAN?

Could you add GPS to the LTE device, as an option?

Yeah, sure, that's an option. Just hoping to be able to use what's already on-board the car.

When the car off, all the electronics ( GPS, Radio...) also off, only the security works. So you couldn't retrieve any info. out, unless you can remotely access to security, by pass, turn on the electronics .

The more general question: does anyone on this site have a CAN bus recorder or know of a site that decodes the packets?
