To start a live tracking using your Capturs device, you need to have it registered on your Capturs account and to have an active subscription for real-time data transmission every 10 minutes.
To associate your Capturs device to your account, go to the “My Devices” page in the left menu.
Complete the S/N and the Key indicated on the back of the device.
It is normal that the first letter (A or B) of the S/N does not then appear in the device name because it is the device’s model indicator.
After validation, if the message “Device already registered” appears: visit the article “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 on your outings. The device must be on and with battery to send its position when it is in motion.
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.
