I'm having trouble with LIVE Tracking.

Having trouble with LIVE Tracking? This could be for one of several reasons:

  • No GPS Signal: If there is no GPS signal in reach, LIVE Tracking may not be possible. Go outside or to an open area to reestablish a GPS connection. This issue is usually corrected automatically as the device continually scans for GPS satellites.
  • No Cellular Coverage: If you are in an area without coverage by the Tractive cellular service providers, or if there is a temporary network outage, LIVE Tracking may not be possible. Check your coverage here or wait until the local network issue is resolved.

Check your GPS / Cellular Coverage status

  • LIVE Tracking has timed out: LIVE Tracking sessions are automatically disabled after 15 minutes, in order to conserve data and battery life.
