Fuel Control and Map View Mode June 23, 2012

Posted by Austral Systems in Application, New Feature, Tip.

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!
Austral GPS Car Tracker TK SMS (Locallizatore)

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,
Austral Systems

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.

Handcent SMS May 4, 2012

Some users are reporting that they aren’t receiving SMS on our APP from the tracker and we found something that can make it happen.

If you have a SMS app installed (not the default one) it will abort sending SMS to another applications, such as our app.

“Handcent SMS”, for example, has an unusual behavior to handle incoming SMS. To work around this behavior, you can make the following configuration in Handcent SMS:
Go to Settings > Application settings > Default Messaging application > Disable

Now Hancent SMS and Austral Xexun GPS Car Tracker will work without problems.

Another tip related to the Locations screen.

Clicking on one of the locations in the Locations tab will open up another screen with a detailed map position. Now let’s explain what each item in this screen means!

Image

At the top, you can find the time that the message was received and also the speed at which the vehicle was at that time. On the left of this text you can see a yellow or grey icon that indicates if the GPS signal was weak or strong (as previous post).

Above the map, there are three buttons:
– The arrows buttons are used to navigate between the next and previous item.
– Search Location, click on it and the address that was shown in latitude and longitude coordinates will be shown in human form (street, city, etc.).

Image

On the map you can see three icons:
– Blue arrow indicates the position of the vehicle and the direction of it.
– Green flag indicates the previous position of the vehicle.
– Checkered flag, indicates the next position of the vehicle.

Furthermore it is also possible to zoom the map to check it better.

Below the map, there is a detailed message with the address received.

Bye,
Austral Team

This tip comes from the Locations tab.

Image

Have you noticed that some locations has a yellow icon on the left and others have a grey one? Do you know what it means?

When we receive a message from the tracker device there is a signal tag. If the value is “F” it means the device could locate your position on GPS (Full GPS Signal, otherwise it means weak GPS signal).

In our app we show it using these signs:
– Yellow, it means the GPS could locate your position on GPS (Signal=F).
– Grey, it means your GPS is in a blind location or have weak signal, like a underground garage, for example. So the GPS sends the last location they found, not the current one.

Bye,
Austral Team

Let’s get it started! April 24, 2012

To get started, the process is simple:

Select the brand and model of your GPS tracker on the home screen and fill the phone number of the GSM Chip and password that are on the tracker. If the tracker is not configured yet, enter the password that you want to be set.

Image

Now you’re on the screen with your location and the vehicle’s one (Dashboard, first tab). Please go to the Settings tab (fourth one) to perform the initial configuration.

Image

If you are already receiving SMS from the tracker just go to the “Begin” menu and then wait until you receive the confirmation messages on the Events screen (third tab).

If you are not receiving SMS on this phone from the tracker you must access the “Setup for the first time” menu, this way the application will automatically perform the necessary steps (allow number, begin, etc.). The confirmation messages are also shown in the Events tab.

Then, after that, go to “Mode” menu and select the Tracker mode to start receiving messages with the locations of your vehicle. In the second tab (Locations) you will have all the locations of your vehicle and in the Dashboard shows the last location received from the vehicle and the location of the cellphone.

Bye,
Austral Team
