Tracking Frequency: Every 30 seconds whilst vehicle moving.
Accuracy: Locations accurate to within a few metres. Note that if GPS signal is hindered by poor positioning of the tracker or for example by tall buildings, dense trees and similar then accuracy may vary.
Deployment: Switch the tracker on by adding batteries and take it for a walk or a drive so that you have some sample tracking locations on your tracking console. Log in to your tracking console and check you can see these locations. Think about where you are going to position the tracker:
- It needs GSM & GPRS (mobile phone & internet) coverage in order to report in – this is not normally an issue in most of the UK.
- It needs a GPS fix in order to get its location – this means you may hide the tracker away under a certain amount of plastic, material, glass etc. but not metal. It will only track indoors if near a window. It won’t track in underground car parks or in, for example garages. If fitting on the outside of a vehicle using the magnetic bracket a good idea is to reach it up behind the rear plastic bumper cover where it should affix to the metal of the car, be shielded from view and excess water and will be able to get a good GPS fix.
Once you have found somewhere you think is suitable, test the tracker in that position and adjust positioning as required.
