What do the LED light colors mean?

By pressing the power button for one second, the LED light will blink two times, indicating the network/GPS status of the device:

Both lights should be green for a normal tracking experience. When one or both lights are red, tracking may be interrupted.


No GPS or Network Connection? Here's what to do:

If you experience one or two red lights, try this:

  1. Turn the device off and on again
  2. Go outside with the device and wait a few minutes
  3. Check the LED light status again until you have two green lights.

Please see the following articles for further information, in case you don't have a GPS or network connection:
