GPS ACCURACY, TIME TO FIX & QUESTIONS

Accuracy

Place the tracker in a position to allow the best possible open sky view. Any obstructions can affect the time and accuracy of the GPS data. The accuracy of the GPS position depends on a number of factors. First of all, accuracy depends on the number of satellites from which signals can be received by the tracker. More satellites will give a better accuracy. The number of the satellites received is an important factor. Further more, a clear sky view will give better results than a sky view which is obstructed by buildings, trees, or other objects. Accuracy according reception of signals, for example as shown in the drawing below, can sometimes be within a few meters.

Time to fix, time of acquisition of GPS data

Apart from the points listed above, the time fix depends on the received signal strength of the satellites. It is therefore important not to put obstacles between the tracker and the open sky. For example, a thick jacket over the tracker will influence the sensitivity and will result in longer times to acquire the satellite data. In normal operation condition the time fix is around 40 seconds (cold start) and between 6 to 20 sec. in a “warm” start condition.

Time delays due to GSM Network congestion

Depending on the GSM network traffic, SMS instructions and/or data transfer can be very quick. However, due to heavy traffic congestion these messages can sometimes be delayed. It is recommended if this kind of delay happens to wait for awhile before resending a SMS message. It is strongly recommended to use SIM cards in your mobile phone and tracker from the same telephone company to try and avoid latency in the SMS handling. Messages between different network providers are handled differently and can sometimes cause excessive delays.

Prepare a SIM card for GSM Tracker Communication

  • Install an activated SIM card in the unit and write down the number. Use a mobile phone to confirm that a PIN code has not been set on the SIM card and that it can dial out and receive telephone calls and SMS messages without problems. SIM card has to be activated by your mobile phone provider. Disable call-forwarding and voice mail messaging. Initially activate the SIM card for the first time with a normal mobile phone, or whichever way is necessary.
  • Before installing the SIM card, make sure to disconnect all power from the Tracker unit
  • Insert the SIM card and lock the SIM card holder by sliding it into its locking position.

Geo-Fence feature

Nearly all of our trackers have “geo-fence” feature, which allows the user to set a virtual boundary around the trackers location. If activated, the tracker will inform the user when leaving or entering this boundary. The user will receive a SMS text message on his mobile phone, when the tracker unit leaves the pre-set boundary area. Geo-Fence feature can be switched on or off via SMS command.

How do I know the position of the tracker, do I need a map?

The SMS text message that the tracker sends to you will contain Latitude and Longitude coordinates. The easiest way to check on the position of the tracker is by entering these coordinates into a mapping program, available free of charge - on our website, or the tracker is set to send a Google map link to your mobile phone, via SMS message. The trackers position can then be displayed on map, on your mobile phone.

How do I get a SIM card to put in the device?

  • An easy way to begin with, is to borrow a SIM card from a friend’s phone, and insert it into your new Tracker.
  • We then recommend that you buy a pre-paid SIM card, available from most mobile phone stores. Put the new SIM card into your mobile phone first to activate it prior to installing it in the GPS tracker.

What happens when the SIM card needs money top up?

  • You need to ensure that your SIM card is topped up at all times for full tracker functionality. Make sure that you make a note of when the pre-paid card will expire, and be sure to keep it active and topped up with enough credit.
  • We also recommend that you remove the SIM card every few months and insert it into your phone to check the balance remaining. For simplicity, we recommend buying and using a prepaid SIM card.

What do other people use our GPS-Trackers for?

  • Checking their vehicles, boats, Elderly person, Children’s or pet / animal's position.
  • Alerting them if their vehicle moves position, or enters & exits certain areas.
  • Tracking a vehicle by continuous position reports if it gets stolen, or in a boat that breaks free from its mooring or anchor position.
  • When installed in a motorbike, alerting them if the motorbike is raised off its stand or moved, by using the built in motion sensor.
  • On a boat, alerting them if the bilge fills up. (When the boat is filling with water.)
  • Disabling the ignition or fuel system if their vehicle is stolen.
