Hello, how are you doing?

This post is about a problem with mobiles with dual chips, one person said he was receiving the messages in our app, but the commands weren’t being recognized by the tracker. After some emails, we discovered the problem: the person had a dual chip phone and just one of the GSM chips numbers were configured as admins in the GPS Tracker, so he simply changed the chips slots on his mobile and everything worked just fine. If you are facing a similar problem, try this workaround.

One month without any posts, but now we wanna celebrate something with you, we just have reached a great milestone, more than 1 thousand sales! Yes, our GPS Tracker (paid version) has more than 1k sales and it is not only this, our free version has more than 65000 downloads, which is also great!

In addition, we are also selling licenses by PayPal in case you don’t have a valid credit card.

If that’s your problem, send us and e-mail and we will send you a billing form to be paid on PayPal.

And last, but not least important, Google is facing some problems with licensing, so some of our clients have send us an e-mail stating that the license isn’t working. If it’s your case, you can try to tips below and if all of them don’t work, send us an e-mail that we will try to help you as soon as possible.

[Austral GPS Car Tracker TK SMS] Tutorial August 21, 2012

Posted by Austral Systems in Application, Setup, Tip.
Tags: , , , , ,

Hi, people.

Some of you were asking for a app’s tutorial, so here it is.

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 configured in your the tracker. If the tracker is not configured yet, enter the password that you want to be set.

If your GSM number is, for example, +55-48-3249-2919, you can set 32492929 that our app will understand. Note that it is the GSM number that is inside your tracker, not your cellphone’s.

Then you must click in the green button to to to the application.

In case you don’t have a GPS Tracker, you can click on the “I don’t have a GPS Tracker” (below the green button) and we will recommend you some places where you can acquire it.

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.

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.

In the 1st tab (Dashboard), you can see your current location and some other things like speed and mode. You can also change the view mode by clicking in the top right button named “Mode” or keep track of all your spendings in fuel by clicking in the bottom right button.

In the 2nd tab (Locations), you can see all the locations you received from the GPS Tracker. If the icon on the left is grey it’s because your GPS Tracker is in a blind location, if it’s yellow it could find the location. You can also click in one of these locations and this location will be showed in a map with all the details.

In the below video on Youtube you can watch our app in action showing how to use the GeoFence feature.

In the 2nd and 3rd tabs (Locations and Events) you can delete all the messages by clicking in the red button (top right).

Fuel Control and Map View Mode June 23, 2012

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


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.

– Feature to reset the counter messages (click in the line with this info and the app will ask if you want to reset);
– Feature to clear all Events and Locations sent and received by the tracker (red “X” button at top right).Image
