The device information can be found in two places:
The location information available is the device address, time tracked, speed, battery percentage left, and the longitude and latitude of the device.
If GPS location is not available, the location will be based on GSM location and text will appear in the device location information area notifying you that the location is based on the cellular network. A halo will also surround the
tracking marker notifying you that the location is approximate, as shown in the image to the right.
Upon clicking on the update location button (available for each device) Trackimo will attempt to contact the device through the cellular network and retrieve the device’s exact location.
Trackimo will retrieve an exact GPS-based location, but if GPS is unavailable at the device location, Trackimo will attempt to approximate the location using the mobile network signals to the device.
If the device is unreachable for 60 seconds during the location update process, the system will notify the user with an information notification. Reasons that the device may be unreachable may include; the device being turned off, the device is out of battery, and the device is in an area that does not have cell phone reception.
The device location frequency can be set by the user. This setting determines how often the device reports its location to you through the Trackimo system.
|Manual||The device location will only update when the user clicks the update location button; this ensures the longest battery life to the device.|
|1 Minute||The device will update its location every 1 minute; this mode will cause the device to have the shortest battery life.|
|5 Minutes||The device will update its location every 5 minutes; this mode will cause the device to have a short battery life.|
|30 Minutes||The device will update its location every 30 minutes; this mode will cause the device to have a moderate battery life.|
|120 Minutes||The device will update its location every 120 minutes; this mode will cause the device to have a long battery life.|
The device history can be displayed on the map by selecting the device history from the history dropdown.
The map will display history marker icons in grey. The map will connect the markers to indicate the device’s tracking path, and will number the device marker icons to form a device history timeline.
The device history can be shown from the last hour, today (24 hours), the last week, and by specifying a specific date and time range (start and end).
Clicking on any device marker info from the history will show the time of the history, the location and the speed.
The map will automatically zoom to show all the history of the device in a single view for you. You can also zoom in and out to better view the device history.
Clicking on the device alarms will open a settings menu on top of the screen. This will allow you to set the device’s specific settings and alarm notifications.

The following alarms are available:
|Speed Limit||A notification is sent when the speed limit is crossed.|
