Your Micro Magnetic arrives with everything needed in order to charge your tracker and begin tracking.

When logged in you can monitor the battery level charging progress from your panel.
PLACING YOUR CAR TRACKER ON A VEHICLE
Another positive of using a magnetic car tracker is the fact that there are so many different areas under the vehicle where you can place it covertly. This makes it extremely difficult to detect the device.
- When placing your tracker in its magnetic case, ensure the front of the tracker is facing down in to the lid. When on a vehicle your tracker will then be facing towards the road. This is the best position, as the satellite signal will ricochet off of the road, and meet the front of the tracker face on- where the receiving antenna is situated.
- Each vehicle is designed differently underneath, but the area that provides the best positioning is near the rear wheel arch of the vehicle.
- As obvious as it may sound, the most important factor when attaching your Micro magnetic is making sure you attach it to flat metal. Do not attach to the exhaust or fuel tank.
You can test the GPS signal strength from your app before leaving the tracker on the vehicle. When the car tracker is on the vehicle, login to your app. You will see the GPS strength as a percentage. If it is above 90% then you will achieve a consistently strong GPS signal.
Once you are satisfied you have your car tracker in a good position, you can monitor its progress at any time from your mapping panel and app. Amongst other features, you can also set up safety zones, alerts and view the full history for any dates and journeys.
Here's a quick video showing you how to use the mapping panel.
