Device Placement

Device Placement

Thank you for purchasing the AM-GL300 Tracker.
Please follow these guidelines to get the best from your GPS Tracker

1. For first time use and activation, please position the GPS tracker such that it has a clear line of sight to the sky. This will ensure it obtains a GPS location fix (this can take between 1 minute to 3 hours). Once the device shows the correct location on the map, please proceed to step 2.

2. GPS location accuracy and positioning the GPS tracker.

If your GPS tracker has a clear line of sight to the sky, it should be very accurate.
If your GPS tracker does not have a clear line of sight to the sky, or if it is blocked by metal, or indoors, it will have a less accurate GPS fix.

If you feel the accuracy of the GPS tracker is poor, please reposition the GPS tracker in a location that does not have/has less metal or concrete between it and the sky. For best results, position the GPS tracker so the Amcrest logo points to the sky.

Please be aware of the following:

Tracker Report Rate: The GPS tracker has an accelerometer/vibration sensor.
When the tracker has detected MOTION ON, it will report its location once a minute.
If the vibration sensor detect no movement, it will enter MOTION OFF/SLEEP state, and report every 3 hours to conserve battery life.

Battery: The GPS tracker automatically sends a LOW BATTERY notification when the battery is between 5-15%.
If you wish to be notified about a LOW BATTERY event, please go to the ALERTS tab, and set up a BATTERY LOW triggered event alert.

Turning on/off the GPS tracker: Hold the power button for 2 seconds, then let go.
Please note that when turning off the device, it can take 30 seconds for the device to completely power down and the LED lights to stop flashing.
