If you need custom AT or MBIM commands to implement location
information retrieval (e.g. start/stop GPS, read GPS NMEA traces...)
then yes, we would need a new plugin to handle this modem.

> [Liu]  Hi Aleksander, is it a location service in modem manager ?

Not sure what you're asking for here :) ModemManager does provide
location information to the system: GPS (both NMEA traces and
processed lat/long info), 3GPP LAC/CID/MCC/MNC and/or 3GPP2 Base
Station info (whatever applies).
