How to extend LIVE Tracking mode

Once LIVE Tracking has been enabled, the real-time tracking session will remain active as long as the Tractive GPS app is open and being used. Otherwise, the session will automatically expire after 5 minutes to conserve the battery life of your tracker - and your pet will continue to be tracked in default tracking mode

If you'd like to keep tracking your pet in LIVE Tracking mode when you are not actively using the Tractive GPS app, the LIVE Tracking timeout can be extended to 15, 30 or 60 minutes by following the steps below:

  1. Tap Profile > Tracker LIVE Tracking Duration
  2. You can now change the default LIVE Tracking duration. 

Note: In LIVE Tracking mode, the tracker uses more battery power as it is working to recalculate its position every 2-3 seconds. We therefore recommend that you only use this feature when you need to find out where your pet is at that particular moment.
