Power BI and GPS tracking

We want to track out pallets with GPS and then connect to Power BI for live tracking. GPS should be waterproof and battery powered. Any ideas how this can be done?
Which GPS tool to use? Thanks

I don't think Power BI can connect to any GPS device directly. In my opinion, you shall collect/centrilize the GPS data into some database. As to visualize the GPS data, you can try R visuals in Power BI. Links for your reference.
