Features and Fault Finding

The location is not accurate
When checking the location please check if it is GPS (very accurate) or LBS (not accurate)
If GPS is not available then it will use LBS to try to determine its location for example when the device is inside a building. 

Power saving mode (Portable trackers) 

To save power we suggest using the sleep based on vibration, this means if the device is not moving then it will go to sleep. 

Vibration sensitivity  (how to use) 

The default is vib1,3 0 off, 1 on 3 is the time of continuous vibration, in seconds, the range of sensitivity is 1-9 (1 being the most sensitive)

Listen and talk (3g models only)

Once you have activated then you can call the device and it will automatically answer the call and you will be able to hear. The device doesn't ring or anything as it does not have a speaker.

To save battery you can increase the upload frequency.

As standard, it will report it location every 30 seconds. You can increase this from the commands section of the app. The value is in seconds so if you want 10 mins input 600. You can also send the command "sleep based on vibration" This means if the device is not moving then it will go to sleep.

GPS Tracker Sim Card Fault Finding

Have you activated the sim card and inserted into the device? Does the sim have available credit not data only? What network are you using? Can you put the sim card in a phone and check it can make and receive calls SMS and has an internet connection?

When you call does it:
A) Go straight to answer phone? This mean the device is either turned off, not in a service area or the sim card is not inserted properly

B) Rings once then goes straight to answerphone? This mean the device is turned on and working but you may not have an available credit on the device. Remember the sim has to be not data only, it must have credit available for calls, SMS and data.

C) It says the person is unavailable or the service is disconnected? This means that the sim has not been activated properly. Please try in a phone and check that it can make and receive calls.


The App is not showing Google Maps

Firstly, if the device is showing in China, this is because that was the last know location from when they did a Quality Assurance test at the factory. To obtain the device location place the device near a window so that it receives GPS signal and then it will update its location. 

When you activate the app you need to give the app permission to access your location, when you do this then the app will automatically select Google maps. To select this manually log out of the app then when in the login screen select the globe in the top right-hand corner then select Google maps. 

Is the tracker still not live on the software?

If not, send me the phone number of the sim that is in the device, turn it on and tell which network you are using. 

I will then remotely communicate with the device and get it online for you. 

We will get this resolved ASAP for you. Can you please turn on the device, leave beside a window and the charger. Then send us the mobile number of sim that is in the device, The network you are using and the IMEI number that is printed on the device. We will do some remote diagnostics and get back to you.

Please send all information to info@ozsmartthings.com.au
