How to differentiate float vs fix status in an RTK system?

As mentioned in this question , the NavSatStatus message has a field for status, with 4 options: No fix, fix, fix with satellite augmentation, fix with ground-based augmentation.

However, the GNSS receiver I am using in an RTK setup provides three solution status: Single, Float and Fix, but after using the nmea_navsat_driver node, Float and Fix are reported simply as "Fix", here below are 2 plot of the same test, on the left is the data from a rosbag file, and on the right is the log provided by the GNSS receiver.

Is there a way to get that status as part of the ROS message or should I implement/modify the nmea_navsat_driver node and the NavSatStatus message?


Just found this issue ticket at github, but it looks like it's silently ignored

Have you checked the covariance? Maybe the driver is not providing a field status differentiation fix/float but is setting the covariances accordingly.
