A. Manual Tracking
Every time you want to track the device, you simply call the tracker by dialing the nominated number of the inserted SIM card on your mobile phone. The line would ring then disconnect and after few seconds you will receive a text message from the tracker with the coordinates of its current location.
You can input the latitude and longitude on any online mapping application to get the physical address or to find the location on a map. (You can go to the link below to check the different online mapping application you can use).
If you are using a smartphone with data service then you can tap on the link provided on the text message to automatically view the location on Google map instead of entering the coordinates.
B. Automatic Tracking
You can set the tracker to send you tracking information automatically without calling the device. You can set the automatic tracking feature of the device where you can set the number of tracking information you want to receive in a day and the time interval.
If you want to track the device in a limited intervals and tracking time, you just send the following commands to the tracker as a text message.
Message Format: fix+intervals+time+tracking times+n+password
Text Message Sample: fix030s005n123456
The above text message sample denotes that the tracker will send GPS coordinates or tracking information to your phone every 30 seconds (030s), 5 times (005n)
For unlimited or continuous tracking, you can send the command below:
Message Format: fix+intervals+time+***n+password
Text Message Sample: fix030s***n123456
The text message sample above denotes that the device will continuously send GPS coordinates (***n) every 30 seconds (030s).
NOTE: The intervals and tracking times must be in 3 digits and the maximum is 255. The interval cannot be less than 20 seconds and the time unit can be express in s for seconds, m for minutes and h for hour. You must also make sure that your mobile number used to track the device has been set as an authorized number. In order to set the number as an authorized number, follow the steps outlined on the link below.
C. GPRS Tracking Mode
You can also track the device in real time online through GPRS tracking mode. You can login to a GPRS server to track the location of the device without entering the coordinates or calling the device. You can as also retrieve the device's history routes.
GPRS tracking mode will require you to subscribe to a GPRS server and the SIM card you installed to the device must have data service activated. The tracker will use the data connection to updates its location on the server and it will do this every 20 seconds. This drains the battery faster compared to the manual or SMS-based tracking.
