Please read and understand the following description of how the device works in practice before ordering.
One of the main advantages of the Yepzon over other GPS trackers is the low battery usage. In order to achieve such long battery life the device does NOT continuously track its position. Instead the device contacts the network on a regular basis and checks to see if a locate request has been made from the Yepzon application, if no request has been made then the device continues in low power mode. If a request for location is received then the device turns on the GPS tracking assisted by GSM cell tower triangulation then once a position is determined it sends this to the smartphone application. This enables the device to continue operating for several days or even a week without a charge if the movement is low.
The connection interval is configured via the smartphone application. Two settings are configured; when moving and when sleeping. So for example if the moving interval is set for 1 minute then the device connects to the network every minute and checks to see if any settings updates or locate requests have been made. So if a locate request is initiated from the smartphone then there is a delay of up to 1 minute before the device turns its GPS tracking on. After this there is also the delay for the device to find the GPS signal and obtain an accurate location. Finally once the device has its position it will communicate this back to the smartphone application. Thus it could take up to 2 to 3 minutes to locate a moving device with the shortest connection interval. Before the device shows the accurate GPS location the smartphone application displays a location based on the last cell phone tower that the device communicated with which has an accuracy of up to several kilometers. Setting the connection interval to 1 minute when moving will increase the battery usage.
The default connection interval for sleeping (when the device is not moving) is 6 hours. This can be configured anywhere between 5 minutes and 1 week. The default of 6 hours is suitable for when the device is used to track continuously moving people or objects. However if the device is being used to track an object such as a bag which may sit still not moving for several hours then the sleeping interval should be reduced accordingly.
