How do Virtual Fence notifications work?

Once your tracker detects that your pet has crossed the boundary of a Virtual Fence (Safe Zone or No-Go Zone) that you have set up, you and anyone you have shared your tracker with will receive a notification.

When in default tracking mode, your tracker detects a new position every 2 minutes or so when your pet is on the move. In LIVE tracking mode, you get position updates every 2-3 seconds. This means that Virtual Fence notifications are typically sent within a couple of minutes when in default tracking mode, and practically instantly in LIVE tracking mode.
