- *master*123456*+27821234123* (enter your cell number in international)
- *multiquery* (allows all cell number to query with sms etc not just the master)
- *locateaddress* (check the sim card and GPS are working)
- *about* (Serial number, software version etc)
- *status* (settings, interval upload, battery etc)
- Should not have to put in an APN but if you need to:
- Afrihost: *apn*afrihost* (no username & password)
- Vodacom: *apn*internet*guest* (no password)
- MTN: *apn*internet*guest* (no password)
- Cellc: *apn*internet* (no username & password)
- Telkom: *apn*internet*guest*guest*
- Point the GPS to the Trackint Server: *setip*197*242*150*95*5002*
- SMS imei to get the imei number (no * stars on either side)
- SMS 0001 to see the settings (no * stars on either side)
- Set the GPS checking and upload times:
- *checkm*5* (In minutes how often it checks the GPS) i.e. GPS will upload to the server every minute.
- *checkgsm*3* (In minutes how often it check the cell towers – GSM / LBS) i.e. GPS will upload to the server every minute.
- Add the device using the app or cloud server login.
- Remember to check you have the correct length of “Device Identifier” (see below for further details)
The above settings use a lot of battery with the above setting but great for testing and accuracy. One can then increase the above times to save on battery.
FAQ: My GPS shows as being in the sea.
- The GPS takes up to 5 minutes to triangulate of the satellites. In the meantime the GPS has booted and has no satellite triangulation yet, so defaults to the sea. Set your ” checkm*5* ” to a bit longer. Maybe “checkm*7*. You can set you GSM triangulation off the mobile / cell towers lower to ” Checkgsm*1* “. (Remember the more it checks the more battery it uses. Satellite checkm uses far more battery than GSM – checkgsm, but if you are in a rural area and there is not 3 towers to triangulate off, location will become more inaccurate.)
- ” checkm*5* ” – can be set as ” checkm*999* ” so that it does not use satellite GPS.
- If you are indoors and the GPS cannot get satellite or GSM triangulation then it will default to the see. Also if indoors like a steel warehouse and no mobile / cell tower data reception the GPS will show as offline for a long period until going outside.
- *poweroff* to turn it off
- Turn LED light flashing on: 1 short and 1 long press of the power button.
- Turn LED light flashing off: 3 short and 1 long press of the power button. Turns the light off, but not the GPS off.
- *soson* or *sosoff*
- *sleep*1-99* wake up and send location every 1-99 hours.
- *sleepv* sleeps and wakes up on motion / movement.
- *routetrack*99* (99 is always on, 1-98 is upload in hours, i.e. *routetrack*1* is 6 GPS points uploaded every minute for 1 hour) and *trackoff*
Rules: Ensure when setting up the GPS for the first time you have:
- Sim card inserted correctly
- SMS’s available
- Data available
- Excellent cell/mobile signal for that sim card service provider
- You should receive and instant reply for command every SMS sent to the GPS
- Excellent GPS signal
- Not inside an office with barely any windows
- Not inside an office under concrete floor
- Not inside an office in a valley
- Not inside a steel warehouse
- Ensure you use the correct identifier / IMEA length number for the correct GPS
- Ensure follow the setup steps
- Ensure you enable the upload times
- Very short for initial setup and testing i.e. every 1 minute
- MUP (Mobile Upload Time), SUP (Standing Upload Time), CheckGSM, CheckM
Adding a Device – “Device Identifier”
- On the “Tracking in Time” app or cloud system.
- When adding a device use the last 11 digits of the IMEA number and add a 0 (zero to the left) – T6 wired unit.
- 5in1 Unit uses the full IMEA number.
- OBD plug in units of use the last 10 digits of the IMEA number.
- Generally the serial number on a GPS will be one of the above numbers you should use.
