To embark on the journey of tracking someone's location, your primary tool is a GPS tracker. This compact device can be discreetly positioned inside or outside a vehicle, providing real-time updates on its current whereabouts. It's imperative for the device to efficiently receive and send GPS signals, with top-tier options offering an extensive signal range.
After selecting your preferred device, the next step involves setting it up with your smartphone. At this stage, the crucial aspect to bear in mind is the indispensable need for a GPS tracker. While alternative methods like apps exist, they often lack the precision offered by dedicated GPS trackers.
Furthermore, GPS trackers offer additional features such as alerts and a history of visited places. These versatile devices open up a realm of functionalities to facilitate effective vehicle tracking.
Opt for a GPS tracker similar to the recommended one to ensure optimal performance and avoid other less suitable options.
It's essential to clarify that, in most cases, tracking a person's car without their explicit consent is illegal. If the individual is aware of being tracked, it defeats the purpose of discreet tracking. Legally, only law enforcement with a warrant can engage in such tracking.
Certain entities, like used car dealers monitoring customers for skipped loan payments, may use tracking legally. However, actions by stalkers, which involve illegal tracking, are condemnable and, hopefully, not applicable to your situation.
Set Alerts for Specific Locations
Exploit the full potential of your GPS tracker by utilizing features like setting alerts for specific locations. This functionality enables the device to send you notifications whenever the vehicle enters a predefined area. This capability proves invaluable, allowing you to focus on your daily activities while staying informed if any unusual occurrences transpire.
Imagining the peace of mind gained from creating alerts for secluded areas underscores the practicality of this feature. By incorporating this functionality, you alleviate the need for constant manual checks, saving time and ensuring efficient tracking.

GPS TRACKER TRACKING DEVICE - OPERATING MODES
1. Continuous Transmission (Full Power): Coordinates are sent continuously, resulting in maximum battery consumption. This mode operates without setting a specific working time for the GPS tracker in the tracking device.
2. GPS Off: The GPS function is disabled when the tracker is stationary, determined by settings under "Time To Sleep." In this standby mode, the tracker can receive commands via phone (SMS) or the online tracking interface. The GPS function activates automatically when the tracker starts moving, minimizing battery consumption.
3. All Off: In this mode, all functions of the GPS tracker, including GPS and GSM, are turned off when the tracker is stationary. Similar to GPS Off, the settings for disabling operation or transitioning to deep sleep mode are determined under "Time To Sleep." It is not possible to send commands to the tracker in this mode, and all functions activate when the GPS tracker starts moving, resulting in minimal battery consumption.
4. Wake Up: In this mode, all GPS tracker functions are turned off, regardless of whether the tracker is stationary or in motion. The transition to the deepest sleep state is determined by settings under "Time To Sleep." Commands cannot be sent to the tracker in this state. The GPS tracker functions activate based on the set wake-up time specified in the settings under "Time To Wake Up." This mode is suitable for users who only need location information at specific intervals, and it is recommended not to set the sleep time to less than 3 minutes.
SIM Card Expiration for Trackers
If your SIM card has expired or is no longer valid, acquiring a new SIM card is necessary. Since the device is set to a specific operator's card, we recommend purchasing a prepaid card from Izimobil (Telekom).
Here are the steps to activate the new SIM card:
1. Insert the new card into the phone and remove the PIN number verification.
2. Send an SMS with the content *181# to activate the card.
3. Enable data transfer or send an SMS to the number 4008 with the content: datahome.
The initial credit on the card is 2 EUR with a validity period of 3 months. For normal tracker use, monthly consumption is approximately 0.5 EUR. Additional funds can be added to the card through various methods, including physical stores, Telekom centers, purchasing vouchers, or online recharge services.
