Rastreador GPS – Economia no Consumo de Bateria June 26, 2012

Olá!

Sorry for the folks who only read English, but we will post some topics in other languages too.

Brasileiros e portugueses, caso vocês não saibam, nossa empresa é brasileira. E gostaríamos de escrever alguns topics em português de hoje em diante, pois não é todo mundo que fala inglês, né?

Uma dúvida que surge muito entre as pessoas que utilizam rastreadores de veículos é a questão quanto ao consumo da bateria do aparelho, pois as pessoas acabam achando que ela está durando pouco, entretanto as vezes o problema nem é do seu aparelho rastreador (ZY International, Xexun, Coban, Zclelec, VT310, etc) e sim das configurações que você deixou habilitada nele.

Normalmente, segundo nossos testes, a bateria dura em torno de 1 dia até no máximo 3-4 dias, então fica a pergunta: por que tanta diferença nesta duração?

Existem várias configurações possíveis que fazem a bateria do rastreador durar mais ou menos, não é algo constante, assim como não é o consumo de combustível. Como todos sabemos o consumo de combustível varia por causa de N fatores como: estrada/cidade, calibragem dos pneus, velocidade e até se o vidro está aberto ou não.

Quanto ao rastreador GPS (tracker), vou citar alguns fatores:
– GPRS ou SMS? GPRS (APN) utiliza bem mais da bateria que usar o modo SMS, pois é necessário uma conexão constante com o servidor.
– GeoFence, se estiver ligada irá gastar mais bateria, pois o rastreador tem que constantemente verificar a posição do veículo. O mesmo ocorre para alertas de movimento, balanço (shake) e velocidade.
– Auto-Tracker, também gasta mais bateria, pois fica mandando SMS de X em X tempos.
– Monitor, gasta MENOS bateria, pois só irá mandar mensagens quando o usuário telefonar para o rastreador.
– Tlimit? Essa é uma opção exclusiva do Xexun. Com ela o rastreador só irá mandar mensagens se a distância entre a posição atual e o último envio forem maiores que N metros. Concluindo, essa opção irá economizar bateria E eventuais custos de SMS e/ou tráfego de dados.

Você pode fazer o download de nosso app para Android no Google Play!

Fuel Control and Map View Mode June 23, 2012

Hello!

We released a new version (1.5) of our GPS Tracker app for Android with some new features, such as:
– Fuel Control (Controle de Combustível), here you can store your supplies of fuel and track how much your car is spending
– TLimit and Reset (Xexun)
– Map View Mode, now you can switch between Traffic (road names, etc) or Satellite view
– Some new patterns are now recognized by our app
– Alert message will show the name of the location where it happened
– Buy screen, where you can find where to buy a GPS Tracker (ebay, MercadoLivre, DealExtreme, etc)

To change the map view mode, you just need to press in the top right button that now exists in all the maps (Dashboard, Detailed Location and GeoFence) and then the options will be shown, so you can choose the view you better adapt.

As for the Fuel Control, you can access this screen by two ways: an option in the Settings screen or by pressing a button in the bottom left of the Dashboard screen.

After accessing the screen, you will have some fields to fill, like date, current mileage, how many liters did you fueled, how much you paid per liter and total paid, and if you fueled all your tank. After filling all the fields, press OK and then you will keep track of everything in the Events screen (3rd tab).

If you fuel for two straight times all the tank, the application will calculate your vehicle efficiency (kilometers per liter) and you can visualize it in the Events tab.

You don’t need to have a GPS Tracker installed to use this Fuel Control feature, because everything is manual. If you don’t have a tracker, you need to press the “I don’t have a GPS Tracker” in the main screen and then click to go to the application in the next screen (Buy screen).

In the next posts we will also write in other languages, like Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, etc, because a lot of our clients doesn’t speak English.

You can download our full GPS app for Android on Google Play!

There is also a Free version without all the functions, but with this version you can evaluate our app and then buy the Full version.

If you are a seller of trackers in your country (Xexun, Coban, ZY, Zclelec, ELRO or Meitrack), get in contact with us, we are looking for some partnerships and we could reach together a Win-Win situation.

Thanks,

Hi, how are you?

We are very proud to announce in our blog that our app has a new feature. Like some of you have noticed, we didn’t had a GeoFence screen, but now we have it and it’s very easy to use.

In the below video on Youtube you can watch this feature in action.

In this version (1.4.6) we also made some improvements and we added some new patterns of locations for clone devices.
