How to setup GPS Trackers


When you receive your GPS tracker you will need to follow some basic steps to ensure your GPS trackers work correctly from day one.


Firstly you will need a SIM card, the SIM plan needs to support phone calls, text messages and data. The data usage for a tracker is about 30mb per month, so a small plan is fine.


Next you will need to ensure there is no message bank, PIN or other service that will interfere with the tracker. The GPS tracker needs to be able to be able to answer all calls and receive all messages without interference.


To test your SIM, place it in a phone and call that number. The phone should ring out without any form of message bank.

GPS Passwords

Placement of your GPS Tracker


GPS Trackers need to access the sky to receive signals from GPS satellites. This means your tracker won’t work if it’s covered by metal (or water), your tracker will receive the signals if covered by plastic, or glass. This means when placing your tracker, ensure that it can access the sky without too much interference. If mounting your tracker on the outside of a vehicle, it won’t work correctly inside the bonnet, and if mounted under the car, needs to be on the edge of the vehicle, not too far underneath.
