How do I get real-time information from this device?

All you have to do is login to our dedicated online portal using the Internet browser from any PC or mobile phone with your ID and password. The dashboard displays the location on a digital map and all the other necessary information.

My map screen shows where the device was yesterday. Today it’s in a completely different place, but the map still shows the old location. Are the satellites down?

The issue is that the device has not transmitted its location to the server since the last location shown on the map.

(A) the device does not have power
(B) it doesn’t have a view of the sky (and therefore cannot calculate its location), or
(C) the device is in an area with no wireless data service, and therefore cannot transmit its location.

We recommend a physical inspection of the device.
