  • As soon as LIVE Tracking is activated, you'll see your pet's position in real time illustrated by a blue line on the map.



If you have our latest Dog or Cat tracker model and have set up a Power Saving Zone, it is only possible to activate LIVE tracking if the tracker is within Bluetooth range of the mobile device you are using.

Turn off LIVE Tracking by simply clicking on the Stop button and confirming that you would like to end the session. LIVE Tracking may also be stopped in the case of the loss of the mobile network or GPS signal.
