Ratings and Reviews
A step backwards...
Basically, I can't quickly zoom to the street level like before without multiple clicks and re-centering the icon. The app used to open right to my device, and zoom into street level. Now in centers the map in the Atlantic ocean, shows my device in the upper corner in the US map. If I click the device icon, it only shows a property of the location. I have to click on it multiple times to get the zoom back to street level. If I select the blue arrow it takes me to the 2nd picture shown above. Then I can only see the map in a small area, not like the first picture above. This app has so much potential, but no there yet. The web based tool is great but the discontinued odometer should be deleted, and the satellite and cell indicators rarely are accurate.
Don’t waste your time or money
I should have listened to the reviews and my own instinct when I first opened their website to signup for service. The product webpage, to phrase it nicely is primitive. The same experience happened to me when I installed and configured their app. Updates on device location and status are none existent, even after reconfiguring the device for 4 minute updates, I get nothing for hours. Since this was purchased to track a disabled child, he would have ended up in Timbuktu before I got an update. Forget anything that claims real time updates.
And the last part is the battery life of the device, they claim long battery life?? the thing would not even work for 8 hours on a full charge before it dies. Don’t bother to try it, it’s a waste of time.
Don’t waste your money!
Tracker battery fails after a few hours despite being set according to recommended intervals. Zone notifications are either completely nonexistent or we get 3 or 4 repeated messages of the same location. We cannot rely on this device for our special needs daughters safety. We have stopped using it altogether after multiple attempts to customer service.
