Preparing the SIM card

As with mobile phones, a SIM card is required to operate the device. The device communicates with the mobile service provider's network via SIM card, SMS or mobile phone or PC applications.

You can purchase the card independently from your mobile service provider or, in the case of a software subscription, from your product distributor. If you received the SIM card from your dealer, you do not need to make any settings: the card is already set up, inserted in the device, switched on and ready for use.

If you have received the SIM card from your dealer, do not try to transfer it to another device (eg phone) and use it! The distributor (service provider) will reimburse the resulting costs or the correction of the resulting errors.

Settings for your SIM card

If you did not obtain the SIM card from your tracking device vendor, you must set it up before inserting and using it in the device, which you can do as follows.

Disable SIM card PIN and other functions

  1. Insert the SIM card in your phone.
  2. Among the setting functions of the phone
  3. turn off the PIN code request, auto-reply and call forwarding options.

After turning off the above, insert the card into the tracking device. See the next section for instructions on how to insert the SIM card.

 

Setting up data traffic

In the case of your own SIM card, to communicate with the device, you need to connect it to the GSM network and set up data traffic. To do this, you must send SMS messages from your phone to the phone number of the SIM card inserted in the tracking device, as shown in the table below.

The factory-set access password for the tracking device in the commands: 123456

Charging the internal battery

The device also has a built-in internal battery, which ensures short-term use and transition when disconnected from the external power source. During normal operation, the internal battery is charged by the vehicle's power source (battery) or (charged with overcharge protection).

Switching on and off

The device turns on automatically when it receives power when a charged internal battery is inserted and / or connected to the vehicle circuit. Its operation occurs when the external and internal power supply connections are disconnected / exhausted. When switched on, the device automatically searches for connections to the GSM / GPRS network and satellites. The LED displays inform about the process and the result.

Normal operation of the device

The device can be operated in the following ways:

  1. using the software service provided by the distributor and the SIM card together, in addition to the software service provided by the distributor but using his own SIM card, or
  2. without the service provider's software service, with your own SIM card.

The service provider provides a SIM card for the tracking device only if you subscribe to the software service. In the case of unsolicited use of the software, the user must provide the appropriate card with a data traffic limit (also).

With Distributor Software and SIM Card

In this case, you can receive the device in the ready state, no further settings are required to use it.

Separate software is available for setting or adjusting the operating parameters of the device, for retrieving information or for using more advanced services (eg map route display, waiting and travel points, diagrams, timetable, etc.). This is provided by the distributor in the form of a downloadable application on a desktop and tablet browser on an Android mobile phone as part of a subscription system.

To use the software, an active internet connection is required on your device (mobile phone, computer).

The software stores and processes the data sent by the tracking device to the service provider's center, from which the graphical and textual information is generated. Using the software triggers (sometimes very expensive) SMS and voice call communication with the device and provides tracking and security services that go well beyond the basic functions of the device.

After launching the application in a browser or phone:

  1. In the login window, enter the username and password you received in the email from the distributor or registered on its website.
  2. In the interface that appears, select Help and review the information for using the software.
  3. Software management information is available in its help.

With Distributor software but with own SIM card

After setting up and inserting the SIM card as described in the setup chapter, you must register the card. To do this, contact your software service provider (device vendor). From now on, the operation of the device is the same as described in the previous chapter.

Without software, with own SIM card

If you have subscribed to the reseller's software service, DO NOT use the standalone SMS communication method because

  • redundant (the software has all the functions needed for tracking and settings),
  • the software provider charges a separate fee for the possible elimination of possible operational anomalies caused by SMS commands,
  • if you use your own SIM card in the device, SMS will incur extra costs,
  • if you use your service provider's SIM card, your service provider will reimburse you for the cost of the SMS.

If you do not use (have not subscribed) to the software service provided by the dealer, you can only use the basic functions of the device - by sending SMS messages from your mobile phone to the phone number of the device's SIM card.

 

In addition, it is possible to query or change the device settings using a computer (Windows 7, 8, 10) and the Teltonika Configurator software. Further information on the above can be found on the manufacturer's website:
