Do you want to track the location of your vehicle or pet but don't know how to start? This guide will walk you through the basic steps and show you that it's not difficult at all. So let's get started.
On the devices page, you can see the devices supported on the platform and choose the one that suits you best.
On the partners map page you can see the partners from whom you can purchase the tracker and who can help you to use the application.
If you wish, you can purchase the tracker in any other place convenient for you.
If you already have a tracker, skip to step 2.
Important to know
If you have a tracker that is not on the list of supported devices, then you can write to us, and perhaps we'll be able to connect this device.
Select the appropriate tracking application from the solutions page. You can download the desired application or use its web version.
To start using the GPS-Trace platform or any of its applications, you need to register first.
To do this, follow the link or click on the "Register" button in the upper-right corner.
You can also register on the page of one of the applications, or in the application itself.
Fill in the form and confirm your email to complete the registration. The process will take no more than 5 minutes.
Now you can log in to the application using the email and password that you specified during the registration.
The unit denotes what you want to track, for example, a vehicle or a pet.
It won't take long to create it.
To create a unit, click on the unit selection field and select "Create unit".
A step-by-step form for creating a unit will open:
Important to know
The unit will be created with some characteristics, such as a name, by default. You can change them later in the unit settings.
After creating the unit, you should connect it to your tracker. Thus, the tracker will be able to send data to the application.
To do this, configure the tracker by performing the following actions:
As soon as you adjust the necessary settings and your tracker starts sending data to the configured server address and port, you can immediately see it on the map in the application.
Important to know
Data transmission trackers should be used with a SIM card or a chip.
Most often, the guide to configuring the tracker is provided with the device. You can also request it from the seller or the manufacturer of your GPS tracker.
The tracker is usually configured using SMS commands specified in the tracker guide. The commands are sent to the number of the SIM card used with the tracker.
Some trackers may have a special program for setting up via a computer.
Our applications will help you not only track the location of a unit on the map, but also please you with other functions. They will help you get the most of your tracker.
Here are some of these possibilities:
Do you want to know where exactly your unit was a few hours or days ago? It only takes a few clicks to find out this.
Using the application, you can view a detailed history of movements, track the events that happened to the unit over the past period.
You can view such information on the "Trips" and "Timeline" tabs and on the "History" tab of the unit menu.
A geofence is an area marked on the map.
As a rule, geofences are used to create notifications that a unit is inside a certain area or has left it. Also, geofences will help you navigate the map faster.
You can create and edit geofences on the "Geofences" tab in the app.
Do you want to be always in touch with your unit?
The application will help you with this. Receive notifications in the way that suits you best: in-app notifications, push notifications, Telegram and email notifications, webhook notifications.
You will always know:
You can configure notification types and sending methods on the "Notifications" tab, in the unit notification settings or in the user menu.
Do you want to share the vehicle location with your loved ones?
There is nothing easier.
In the application, you can generate a link which will lead to the location of your unit. Just use the "Sharing" function from the unit menu.
