What do the LEDs On My Tracker Mean?

On the front of your tracker you will notice 3 individual LED lights. These LEDs act as status indicators for your device. 


These indicators have 3 different modes, off, flashing, and solid. For more information on what these LEDs represent refer to the information provided below. 

Note: If the unit is not applied to its power source or the battery is dead, the unit will be in off mode and no LEDs will be present until adequate power is applied.

Green GSM LED (CEL): Mobile Network Connection (Cellular) Status. 


Flashing: A slow flashing LED represents a good mobile network signal is present. If the LED is flashing rapidly (about one flash per second) the unit is searching for a GPS signal. 

Red LED (PWR): The red LED (PWR) indicates the battery status of the device.


Off: The device has adequate battery life and is disconnected from the power adapter. 

Flashing: While the device is charging, the red LED light (PWR) will rapidly begin to flash. When the battery has completed charging the LED will disappear. When the red LED is slowly flashing, the battery is low (below 20%) and may need to be charged. 

Note: Low battery notifications are sent to your email and in the app when the battery reaches 20% or below by default unless modified by the user. 

When the power button on the top of the GPS is pressed, the red LED will also begin to flash rapidly indicating the device is being shut off. To turn off the tracker, press and hold the power button for 3 seconds and release. To turn the tracker back on, press the power button again and release. 

Solid: The device is fully charged and ready for use. The battery can take up to 5 hours to completely charge. 

Blue LED (GPS): The blue LED represents when the GPS is communicating with multiple satellites. This light is rarely used as most GPS tracking involves cellular communication.


Flashing: The blue LED (GPS) will flash intermittently when communicating with multiple GPS satellites.  This LED will remain off the majority of its operation.
