Follow the simple steps below to turn your Tractive GPS tracker on or off.
To turn the tracker ON:
Press the power button on the device for 3 seconds. You will hear some ascending beeps and the LED will light up green for one second.
To turn the tracker OFF:
To turn the GPS device off, press the power button for 3 seconds again and you will hear some descending beeps. The LED will also light up red for one second.
Under certain circumstances, the red light might remain illuminated for a couple of seconds. This means that the tracker is transmitting data through the cellular network before it turns off completely.
How do I know whether the Tractive GPS tracker is turned on or off?
Press the button on the device briefly (less than 3 seconds). If you hear a beep and the LED lights up then the tracker is turned on. If, however, the app reports that the tracker is still turned off a couple of minutes later, this indicates that the tracker is not currently reporting. In this case, please follow the troubleshooting steps at the end of this article.
