FAQ’s Frequently Asked Questions
How does GPS track indoors? Don’t all GPS devices need a straight line of sight to the sky?
Most, if not all GPS products we manufacture use real time tracking. This means that the device is constantly receiving and
recording the latest location on the device. When the device goes inside a building, the unit will retrieve the latest location
information from the device. If the device is close to a window within a building, it will get a GPS signal.
If my child is camping in a remote area with no cell phone service, would I be able to track it from my home?
No. The device requires a cellular connection to send data to the servers to update the location. In many remote locations
cellular service is sparse or not available.
How long does the battery last?
The MX-LOCare™ GPS Watch will last approximately 96 hours with one minute live tracking intervals. The other devices will
last approximately 24 hours on the same settings as our device. The battery life can be affected by poor GPS, poor cellular
service, cellular usage and the number of alerts you have generated. You can monitor the battery using the App which will
show the battery level left at each update.
With all devices we always recommend charging them on a daily basis just like you do with your cell phone.
What is "real time" locating and how does it affect the battery life?
If a device is constantly checking and storing a new location – that is called “real time”. If a device in on “manual”, “standby”
or “sleep” mode, then it’s not constantly updating its location information. The MX-LOCare™ GPS Watch always stays in one
minute live track mode unless the caregiver decides to put it in manual mode which will turn off live tracking mode. Why is
this important? If the wearer goes into an area that does not have a GPS signal, such as a tunnel, cave, parking garage, subway
etc. the MX-LOCare™ Watch will know where the wearer was 1 minute before they went into this area. This is critical! If a
wearer goes missing – you’ll be able to know the closest possible location before the GPS signal was lost.
If I can receive alerts by emails do I need to have a text messaging plan to use this product?
No, It is completely up to the user how they want to receive their messages. Some prefer email and some prefer SMS. You
have the option to receive either or both.
