Click on the QR code icon and scan the back of the device.

Why does the interface say “device already registered”?
The device can only be registered for one user account. If you try to add it to a second account, this message will appear. You must delete it from the old account before you can save it to a new one.
 

Then simply take it with you or fix/place it. The device must be on and with battery to send its position when it is in motion.

The Capturs OBD GPS Tracker must be connected to the vehicle’s OBD II socket and the Capturs Power GPS Tracker must be connected to the vehicle battery.

Why isn’t my device sending a position?
If the device does transmit on Sigfox but there are no positions sent at the same time, this may be due to several phenomena specific to devices using satellite positioning systems.
 
The main position losses come from the stalling of the signals between the device and the satellites, thus preventing the triangulation of the position:
 
– From GPS fix just after departure, cold, where the device could no longer see the constellation of the satellites, and therefore needs about 3 minutes before starting to move to find their position and thus start to fix its position correctly.
 
– From the outside environment: trees, buildings and even clouds can prevent the proper reception of data from a satellite and can cause triangulation to be prevented or accuracy to be lost.
 
How do I turn my device on/off?

GPS Tracker Capturs Model B:
A simple press on the central button of the tracker allows it to be switched on, if there is enough battery, and to start sending positions in real time.
To turn off the tracker, you must keep the button pressed for about 5 seconds. The leds of the tracker will have the following behaviour: after 3 seconds the blue led will light up, then by keeping pressed, the red led will light up about 2 seconds later. You can release the button when the tracker is off.

GPS Tracker Capturs Model C :
If the battery is inserted, the GPS tracker starts automatically. If a tab is fitted to the GPS tracker, gently pull it out and gently tighten the 4 screws (standard Model C) to close the case properly.

To turn off the GPS tracker, remove the battery.

How to use the device optimally?
Metallic environment
A metallic environment disturbs Sigfox radio waves and can lead to signal losses. Do not use Sensors near or surrounded by a large metal object (water bottle).
 
GPS Fix
When it hasn’t been working for some time, the GPS needs to know the satellite constellation. It will automatically download the ephemeris and store it in its memory to get its position faster in the next fix. The first fix can thus be longer depending on the environment. A clear environment during the first fix will improve system performance. The ephemeris is valid for about 4 hours.
GPS does not work indoors. The Sigfox network, on the other hand, will often be operational. Movement information without position indications can thus be used in the software in a transparent way for the user, thus increasing its capacities. An approximate position can also be given by radio triangulation.
 
Device position
Position the device preferably with the eyelet facing up and the face with the Capturs Logo facing out. Do not attach the device to the eyelet as the vibratory motion of the pendulum will affect performance. The ideal is an external backpack pocket, such as a mesh pocket that is well maintained in the indicated position. Otherwise, position the device with the face with the Capturs logo facing upwards.
 
Wearing the device on a person
The principle of radio waves emission applies: the less obstacles we have, i.e. the more we are facing a free field, the better the result will be.
Thus on a person, the ideal is to carry it in an external pocket of the backpack or on the belt well maintained in the right direction, following the principles of positioning explained in the previous paragraphs. Avoid places where the beacon moves in all directions, turns over, vibrates too much or undergoes a continuous pendulum movement.
The device will also work in pockets or bags, as the environment may have an influence. A metal frame or formwork will greatly degrade radio performance.
The higher the device is carried, with no obstructions around it, and is well maintained, the better the result will be.
 
Is my device Capturs waterproof?

The Model B (and A) Capturs GPS tracker is not waterproof and has no IP certification, but we provide with each GPS tracker a waterproof pouch that allows the GPS tracker to be sheltered from water.

The Model C Capturs, Endurance GSM and Power GPS trackers are certified IP67. They are waterproof, dustproof and weather resistant.

Please note that the Model C Beehive GPS tracker is not waterproof, unlike the standard Model C.

The GPS tracker Capturs Performance GSM is IPX5 certified. It is protected against water splashes from all directions.

 

What are the sports where it is possible to use the Capturs device?
You can use the Capturs device for all your outdoor sports, including: Hiking, walking, trekking, running, trailrunning, triathlon, cycling, motorcycling, kayaking, swimming, canoeing, rollerblading, skateboarding, hunting, skiing, snowboarding, paragliding, horseback riding, sailing, surfing, boating…
 
What do the flashing leds mean?
Power on: The green LED lights up and the blue LED flashes once.
 
Power off: The red LED lights up and the blue LED flashes once.
 
Send 3 clicks alert: The red LED and green will flash alternately.
 
Send alert: The blue LED flashes as many times as the button is pressed.
 
Battery charge: When the bottom right LED is red, it means that the Model B is charging. When it turns green, it means that the tracker is charged.
 
What limitations and warnings should I be aware of?
CAPTURS IS NOT A SAFETY DEVICE. PANIC BUTTON DOES NOT CALL OR REPLACE A CALL TO OFFICIAL RESCUE TEAMS.
 
You are using Capturs at your own risk and you fully understand that Capturs does not prevent from any accident or hazards.
 
Remember to always prefer calling official emergency phone numbers (e.g 112 in Europe) in case of any emergency. Capturs is not affiliated to a rescue team or any safety organization.
 
Sending Sigfox radio messages and acquiring GPS signals are systems that have limits depending on the conditions of use and of the environment. Messages may be lost or not delivered. We cannot bring us responsible for accidents. For more information visit https://www.capturs.com/disclaimer.
