Setting up the GPS Tracking for Online GPS Tracking with GPRS
Once you have your data enabled SIM inside the GPS Tracker, you just need to set it up. Our GPS Trackers use a simple texting protocol – you text the GPS tracker from another mobile phone with specific commands. Firstly, you need to set the APN (access point name) for the SIM inside the GPS tracker. This enables the GPS tracker to be able to upload information to the internet, using the SIM’s access network. The APN is different from company to company. When you buy a GPS tracker from us, we provide a list of all the APNs for UK carriers, so you know exactly what you need to text to your GPS tracker to get it set up (depending on the SIM card you have). You simply look up your company (GiffGaff, Orange, Tesco Mobile, Vodafone etc) then see the whole text command that you need to send to the GPS Tracker. Easy!
The next step is to configure the GPS Tracker to upload to a particular server on the internet. Again, when you purchase a GPS Tracker from us, we give full instructions of exactly what to text the GPS tracker.
The third and final step for the GPS tracker in terms of online GPS Tracking with GPRS is to text the tracker with your GPRS variables. Whether you want GPRS uploading switched on or off, and what the interval period should be (1 minute? Every 10 minutes?) Generally speaking, the shorter the interval, the faster the batteries will run out, but with a 5 minute interval you should be good for a day.
