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 “connection interval” 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.
Then, you can also choose between “Passive” and “Active” modes.
In Passive mode, the tracking device goes into a low power “sleep” state 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).
In Active mode, the mobile tracker sends location data continuously based on your connection interval settings.
For example: when your child arrives at school at 8:00, again at 8:02, again at 8:04, etc. (assuming a 2-minute connection interval).
Active mode provides much more up-to-date location data, however this mode uses a lot more battery power than Passive mode.
