The 'LadyBug' is a compact, reliable GPS tracking device that has been designed for vehicles to have the ability to successfully locate your vehicle, this is a great on hand feature to have during an RV's hire period.
This getting started guide is only for the 'LadyBug' cellular version which comes in 4G Cat-M1/Nb-IoT.
The 'LadyBug' has the capacity to hold 48000 records in it's memory in case the unit moves out of reception. These records won't be removed until a successfully confirmed received by the end server has been transmitted.
What is included in the box?
You'll get a compact box containing the tracker. The 6 housing screws will be in a small packet inside the housing.
How do I install it?
The tracker can be mounted on the asset to be tracked using screws, bolts, cable ties, or industrial adhesives. When choosing a mounting point, you have two competing goals:
- To minimise the chances of the device being accidentally crushed or dislodged.
- To maximise the GPS and mobile reception and provide adequate ventilation.
Since the tracker is a Hardwired device, reception is critical to its performance. This device will come with three options in regards to the installation;
- via USB
- via automobile auxiliary power outlet
- Via hardwire to the battery direct.
We recommend using the supplied wires to install the unit to the battery. (Please see attached PDF)
If possible, choose a mounting point that will not result in elevated temperatures.
For instance, mounting the tracker in direct sunlight on the dash of a non-ventilated cabin may cook the batteries, leading to an abnormally short service life.
