How often is my child’s location updated in the app?
You can determine how often the TrackieX app connects to your child’s tracker using the app’s “Update frequency” settings.
With this setting, you can choose how frequently you’d like the TrackieX tracker to send location data to the mobile app – for example, every 2 minutes.
The tracking device goes into a low power “sleep” state if it is not moving for 5 minutes until it detects motion. When your child moves, the device then sends location data to the mobile app if enough time has elapsed based on the connection interval you’ve set.
For example: you set a connection interval of 2 minutes and the TrackieX sends location data when your child arrives at school at 8:00. If your child sits down at their desk and doesn’t move again until 9:00, TrackieX will send you that location data at 9:00 and not before (while your child wasn’t moving).
You can set the update frequency between 30seconds and 180 seconds (3 minutes) lesser the update frequency uses more battery power than longer update frequency.
