The Map View

By clicking on the name of your pet or the tracker ID,  the map view will be displayed like so: 



In the map view, you will find the following features: 

Tracker Status

On the top left corner, the following information can be found:

  • Pet Name or tracker ID
  • Last Position Report
  • GPS status (inaccurate, unreachable, ...) Clicking on the accuracy status will display additional information to solve the problem!
  • Speed (PREMIUM Feature) - In Default Tracking mode, this always reads as: 0 km / h. The speed of your animal 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.
  • Temperature - The temperature status of your GPS device is still displayed if it has a temperature sensor (currently only the GPS 2 model offers this feature).


Tracker Functions & Commands

On the top right corner, the following commands can be activated:

  • LIVE Tracking mode: This button activates the live mode. The corresponding command is transmitted via our data centers to the terminal which then starts the live mode.
  • LED Light: With this button, the white LED (the white light) on the tracker can be activated. Note that the function has a built-in timer and is automatically deactivated after a certain time.
  • Buzzer Function: 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. It can also be easily disabled by pressing a button on the device. (Please note that due to legal restrictions, the buzzer feature is not available in all countries).
  • Location History: With this feature, position 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 of the map. If you want to export the corresponding data for further use, you have the possibility to download them in GPX or KML format.
  • Virtual Fence Settings: Configure Virtual Fences to set a defined safe area for your pet.


Map Settings

At the bottom right of the screen, adjust the map settings:

  • Click on the gear icon to view the following options: 
    • 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 red circle or square when the corresponding box has been checked.
  • The map view can also be changed to the satellite view if desired.
