The Map View

In the map view, you can view the current tracker status and location, access tracker commands, view tracker history, edit Virtual Fences, and access the following settings:

  • Pet name or Tracker ID
  • Last Position Report
  • Device status: Clicking on the status will display additional information.
  • Speed (PREMIUM Feature): The speed of your pet will only be displayed and updated in LIVE Tracking mode.
  • Altitude (PREMIUM Feature): In addition, the current elevation of the device is displayed. This is calculated on the basis of the last GPS position and is more accurate when more GPS satellites are available.
  • Light: With this button, the white LED light on the tracker can be activated. Note that the function has a built-in timer and is automatically deactivated after a certain time.
  • Sound: This button activates the built-in speaker, which then emits a sound. This can be used in the case that the device is lost. The function also deactivates automatically after a certain amount of time. (Please note that due to legal restrictions, the sound feature is not available in all countries).
  • Fence: Configure Virtual Fences to set a defined safe area for your pet.
  • History: With this feature, location history of your pet is displayed. At the bottom of the screen, a timeline will appear in which start and end dates can be set. In addition, the time period can be precisely defined via the slider. The position history will be displayed via a linear path on the map. If you want to export the corresponding data for further use, you have the possibility to download it in GPX or KML format.
  • LIVE: Use this button to activate LIVE Tracking and see the position of your pet updated in the map every 2-3 seconds.
  • Map Settings:
    • Device Accuracy is indicated by a blue circle around the tracker within whose radius the actual location of the device is located.
    • The Virtual Fence is displayed with a pink circle or square when the corresponding box has been checked.
    • Map Type: The map view can also be changed to the satellite view if desired.
