How Often Will the Tracker Report?
The GPS tracker has a built-in accelerometer/vibration sensor that is set to report tracking once motion has been detected. Once motion is detected, it will begin reporting the location and movement of the object being tracked. The reporting interval is set to report every 1 minute by default however, if no motion is detected it will enter motion off/sleep mode and only report every 3 hours to conserve battery life.
Note: To increase efficiency, ensure the GPS tracker has a clear line of sight to the sky and is not blocked any metal obstructions or indoors when in use.
Reporting intervals can be adjusted to increase the accuracy of the reporting intervals. However, please note, increasing the reporting interval may increase the amount of battery life of the GPS tracker. For more information about battery life click here.
