To add a tracker, follow these steps:

  1. Find “Tracking devices” in the menu;
  2. Press the “+” sign to add a device;
  3. Enter the tracking device data (tracker IMEI number and phone number) or take a picture of the QR code on the device;
  4. The device is added to your tracker list.

Dog tracker in management view shows device general information (the title of the device, device IMEI, phone number, icon). Also, it shows the last data from the device:

  • last connection time
  • battery level
  • GSM signal strength (range from 1 up to 5)
  • Fixed GPS number

Last connection time

Shows the time when the tracking device has sent out the last information about its activity. Depending on signal time, the icon is in different colors:

  • time is green – the tracking device is in monitoring mood or has just sent the last signal (received within last 3 minutes);
  • time is black – the tracking device is on stand by mode (signal received in the last 4- 65 minutes);
  • time is red – the tracking device has turned off or out of range (the last signal received more than an hour ago). If it’s possible, check the device.

NB! The time is shown in the map view in the dog information window (by clicking on the dog icon) and the time displayed in the tracing device management window may be different. A map view shows the dog’s last position and time.  The management view of the tracking device displays the last signal received from the tracker, which may not include its location.

GPS signal 

Displays the number of fixed satellites from the tracking deviece. Your device must connect to at least 3 to 4 satellites to determine your location. The higher number of fixed satellites, the more accurate location of the tracking device will be displayed.  The maximum number of fixed satellites is 12.

How accurately a device will display  its location in tracking mode depends on several factors:

  • Strenght of GPS signal. The device requires a strong connection to satellites to pinpoint your exact location. Being indoors, the possibility of output required signal strength is small, resulting in a weak signal or no signal at all.   Bad weather conditions also might affect how quickly the device is able to connect.
  • Strenght fluctuations of GPS signal. To receive a fixed satellite is needed to have the same strength of the signal. GPS signal fluctuations are usually caused by a glazed window inside (the gas used in the windows affects GPS signal propagation). The stability of GPS signal is also affected by dogs activities – its movements are sudden, within GPS signals fluctuate on the tracking device while a dog is running.

In the list of tracking devices (select “Tracking devices” from a menu),  the user is shown all devices associated with him – the ones he owns and the ones that have been shared with him. Sheard devices are on a dark background and cannot be viewed or edited. Each tracker shows the device icon, device GSM number, the name of the device and it displays the last signal received from the tracker.

There is no limit to tracking devices you can connect to. The tracker is managed in the tracking device management view (from the menu select “Tracking devices”, then desired device).

In the device management view in-app, you can send the desired actions to the device. Any actions are taken by call or text message to your device:

  • To switch to device tracking mode, press “Start” and the phone will automatically start calling to tracker. When the command is understood, the tracker automatically ends the call. NB! Due to technical issues with the phone operator, the user may also receive a “Service failed, please try again later” message. In this case, the device will start work;
  • To call the device and listen to what is going around it, in-app, press the phone symbol and it will start a call to the tracking device (it must be turned on and in tracking mode). The device automatically answers the call and it can be up to 60 seconds long;
  • To turn off the device from tracking mode, press the “Stop” and the phone will send a text message to the tracker. The content of the sent message is “0”;
  • To change the tracking device time of interval,  select “Set interval” and enter the desired time in seconds. Then send a text message to the tracking device number. The content of the message is “1” + the user-entered interval (for example, “115” is sent to the device, interval timing is 15 seconds).  When you send an interval change command to the device in standby mode, the device automatically switches to tracking mode. The trackers’ interval can be from 1 to 99 seconds. NB! The shorter the tracking interval, the higher is battery consumption of the device.

The Huntloc up can be used to view dogs’ route and total distance.

To do it, you must:

  • Go to the dog tracking device management view (select “Tracking devices” and the desired tracking device from the menu).
  • Press the motion history button (map with a broken arrow). When you press it, the sign turns orange.
  • Return to the main view of the map, where you can see the drawn route of the dog’s movement. The history of the route is stored for the last 24 hours. The user can set a shorter period, which can be changed in the “Tracking History, View Age” section of the app’s settings.
  • To view the distance covered, click on the dog icon in the map view and you will see the distance traveled in kilometers with time information. For example, Dist: 1.24km (2h) – in the last 2 hours the dog has covered 1.24 kilometers.

To remove a route from the map view, go to the tracker management menu and press the orange traffic history display button and the sign will turn white again.

Dog tracker in management view shows device general information (the title of the device, device IMEI, phone number, icon). Also, it shows the last data from the device:

  • last connection time
  • battery level
  • GSM signal strength (range from 1 up to 5)
  • Fixed GPS number

Last connection time

Shows the time when the tracking device has sent out the last information about its activity. Depending on signal time, the icon is in different colors:

  • time is green – the tracking device is in monitoring mood or has just sent the last signal (received within last 3 minutes);
  • time is black – the tracking device is on stand by mode (signal received in the last 4- 65 minutes);
  • time is red – the tracking device has turned off or out of range (the last signal received more than an hour ago). If it’s possible, check the device.

NB! The time is shown in the map view in the dog information window (by clicking on the dog icon) and the time displayed in the tracing device management window may be different. A map view shows the dog’s last position and time.  The management view of the tracking device displays the last signal received from the tracker, which may not include its location.

GPS signal 

Displays the number of fixed satellites from the tracking deviece. Your device must connect to at least 3 to 4 satellites to determine your location. The higher number of fixed satellites, the more accurate location of the tracking device will be displayed.  The maximum number of fixed satellites is 12.

How accurately a device will display  its location in tracking mode depends on several factors:

  • Strenght of GPS signal. The device requires a strong connection to satellites to pinpoint your exact location. Being indoors, the possibility of output required signal strength is small, resulting in a weak signal or no signal at all.   Bad weather conditions also might affect how quickly the device is able to connect.
  • Strenght fluctuations of GPS signal. To receive a fixed satellite is needed to have the same strength of the signal. GPS signal fluctuations are usually caused by a glazed window inside (the gas used in the windows affects GPS signal propagation). The stability of GPS signal is also affected by dogs activities – its movements are sudden, within GPS signals fluctuate on the tracking device while a dog is running.

In the list of tracking devices (select “Tracking devices” from a menu),  the user is shown all devices associated with him – the ones he owns and the ones that have been shared with him. Sheard devices are on a dark background and cannot be viewed or edited. Each tracker shows the device icon, device GSM number, the name of the device and it displays the last signal received from the tracker.

There is no limit to tracking devices you can connect to. The tracker is managed in the tracking device management view (from the menu select “Tracking devices”, then desired device).

In the device management view in-app, you can send the desired actions to the device. Any actions are taken by call or text message to your device:

  • To switch to device tracking mode, press “Start” and the phone will automatically start calling to tracker. When the command is understood, the tracker automatically ends the call. NB! Due to technical issues with the phone operator, the user may also receive a “Service failed, please try again later” message. In this case, the device will start work;
  • To call the device and listen to what is going around it, in-app, press the phone symbol and it will start a call to the tracking device (it must be turned on and in tracking mode). The device automatically answers the call and it can be up to 60 seconds long;
  • To turn off the device from tracking mode, press the “Stop” and the phone will send a text message to the tracker. The content of the sent message is “0”;
  • To change the tracking device time of interval,  select “Set interval” and enter the desired time in seconds. Then send a text message to the tracking device number. The content of the message is “1” + the user-entered interval (for example, “115” is sent to the device, interval timing is 15 seconds).  When you send an interval change command to the device in standby mode, the device automatically switches to tracking mode. The trackers’ interval can be from 1 to 99 seconds. NB! The shorter the tracking interval, the higher is battery consumption of the device.

The Huntloc up can be used to view dogs’ route and total distance.

To do it, you must:

  • Go to the dog tracking device management view (select “Tracking devices” and the desired tracking device from the menu).

Dog tracker in management view shows device general information (the title of the device, device IMEI, phone number, icon). Also, it shows the last data from the device:

  • last connection time
  • battery level
  • GSM signal strength (range from 1 up to 5)
  • Fixed GPS number

Last connection time

Shows the time when the tracking device has sent out the last information about its activity. Depending on signal time, the icon is in different colors:

  • time is green – the tracking device is in monitoring mood or has just sent the last signal (received within last 3 minutes);
  • time is black – the tracking device is on stand by mode (signal received in the last 4- 65 minutes);
  • time is red – the tracking device has turned off or out of range (the last signal received more than an hour ago). If it’s possible, check the device.

NB! The time is shown in the map view in the dog information window (by clicking on the dog icon) and the time displayed in the tracing device management window may be different. A map view shows the dog’s last position and time.  The management view of the tracking device displays the last signal received from the tracker, which may not include its location.

GPS signal 

Displays the number of fixed satellites from the tracking deviece. Your device must connect to at least 3 to 4 satellites to determine your location. The higher number of fixed satellites, the more accurate location of the tracking device will be displayed.  The maximum number of fixed satellites is 12.

How accurately a device will display  its location in tracking mode depends on several factors:

  • Strenght of GPS signal. The device requires a strong connection to satellites to pinpoint your exact location. Being indoors, the possibility of output required signal strength is small, resulting in a weak signal or no signal at all.   Bad weather conditions also might affect how quickly the device is able to connect.
  • Strenght fluctuations of GPS signal. To receive a fixed satellite is needed to have the same strength of the signal. GPS signal fluctuations are usually caused by a glazed window inside (the gas used in the windows affects GPS signal propagation). The stability of GPS signal is also affected by dogs activities – its movements are sudden, within GPS signals fluctuate on the tracking device while a dog is running.

In the list of tracking devices (select “Tracking devices” from a menu),  the user is shown all devices associated with him – the ones he owns and the ones that have been shared with him. Sheard devices are on a dark background and cannot be viewed or edited. Each tracker shows the device icon, device GSM number, the name of the device and it displays the last signal received from the tracker.

There is no limit to tracking devices you can connect to. The tracker is managed in the tracking device management view (from the menu select “Tracking devices”, then desired device).

In the device management view in-app, you can send the desired actions to the device. Any actions are taken by call or text message to your device:

  • To switch to device tracking mode, press “Start” and the phone will automatically start calling to tracker. When the command is understood, the tracker automatically ends the call. NB! Due to technical issues with the phone operator, the user may also receive a “Service failed, please try again later” message. In this case, the device will start work;
  • To call the device and listen to what is going around it, in-app, press the phone symbol and it will start a call to the tracking device (it must be turned on and in tracking mode). The device automatically answers the call and it can be up to 60 seconds long;
  • To turn off the device from tracking mode, press the “Stop” and the phone will send a text message to the tracker. The content of the sent message is “0”;
  • To change the tracking device time of interval,  select “Set interval” and enter the desired time in seconds. Then send a text message to the tracking device number. The content of the message is “1” + the user-entered interval (for example, “115” is sent to the device, interval timing is 15 seconds).  When you send an interval change command to the device in standby mode, the device automatically switches to tracking mode. The trackers’ interval can be from 1 to 99 seconds. NB! The shorter the tracking interval, the higher is battery consumption of the device.

Dog tracker in management view shows device general information (the title of the device, device IMEI, phone number, icon). Also, it shows the last data from the device:

  • last connection time
  • battery level
  • GSM signal strength (range from 1 up to 5)
  • Fixed GPS number

Last connection time

Shows the time when the tracking device has sent out the last information about its activity. Depending on signal time, the icon is in different colors:

  • time is green – the tracking device is in monitoring mood or has just sent the last signal (received within last 3 minutes);
  • time is black – the tracking device is on stand by mode (signal received in the last 4- 65 minutes);
  • time is red – the tracking device has turned off or out of range (the last signal received more than an hour ago). If it’s possible, check the device.

NB! The time is shown in the map view in the dog information window (by clicking on the dog icon) and the time displayed in the tracing device management window may be different. A map view shows the dog’s last position and time.  The management view of the tracking device displays the last signal received from the tracker, which may not include its location.

GPS signal 

Displays the number of fixed satellites from the tracking deviece. Your device must connect to at least 3 to 4 satellites to determine your location. The higher number of fixed satellites, the more accurate location of the tracking device will be displayed.  The maximum number of fixed satellites is 12.

How accurately a device will display  its location in tracking mode depends on several factors:

  • Strenght of GPS signal. The device requires a strong connection to satellites to pinpoint your exact location. Being indoors, the possibility of output required signal strength is small, resulting in a weak signal or no signal at all.   Bad weather conditions also might affect how quickly the device is able to connect.
  • Strenght fluctuations of GPS signal. To receive a fixed satellite is needed to have the same strength of the signal. GPS signal fluctuations are usually caused by a glazed window inside (the gas used in the windows affects GPS signal propagation). The stability of GPS signal is also affected by dogs activities – its movements are sudden, within GPS signals fluctuate on the tracking device while a dog is running.

In the list of tracking devices (select “Tracking devices” from a menu),  the user is shown all devices associated with him – the ones he owns and the ones that have been shared with him. Sheard devices are on a dark background and cannot be viewed or edited. Each tracker shows the device icon, device GSM number, the name of the device and it displays the last signal received from the tracker.

There is no limit to tracking devices you can connect to. The tracker is managed in the tracking device management view (from the menu select “Tracking devices”, then desired device).

Due to technical issues with the phone operator, the user may also receive a “Service failed, please try again later” message. In this case, the device will start work;
  • To call the device and listen to what is going around it, in-app, press the phone symbol and it will start a call to the tracking device (it must be turned on and in tracking mode). The device automatically answers the call and it can be up to 60 seconds long;
  • To turn off the device from tracking mode, press the “Stop” and the phone will send a text message to the tracker. The content of the sent message is “0”;
  • To change the tracking device time of interval,  select “Set interval” and enter the desired time in seconds. Then send a text message to the tracking device number. The content of the message is “1” + the user-entered interval (for example, “115” is sent to the device, interval timing is 15 seconds).  When you send an interval change command to the device in standby mode, the device automatically switches to tracking mode. The trackers’ interval can be from 1 to 99 seconds. NB! The shorter the tracking interval, the higher is battery consumption of the device.

The Huntloc up can be used to view dogs’ route and total distance.

To do it, you must:

Dog tracker in management view shows device general information (the title of the device, device IMEI, phone number, icon). Also, it shows the last data from the device:

  • last connection time
  • battery level
  • GSM signal strength (range from 1 up to 5)
  • Fixed GPS number

Last connection time

Shows the time when the tracking device has sent out the last information about its activity. Depending on signal time, the icon is in different colors:

  • time is green – the tracking device is in monitoring mood or has just sent the last signal (received within last 3 minutes);
  • time is black – the tracking device is on stand by mode (signal received in the last 4- 65 minutes);
  • time is red – the tracking device has turned off or out of range (the last signal received more than an hour ago). If it’s possible, check the device.

NB! The time is shown in the map view in the dog information window (by clicking on the dog icon) and the time displayed in the tracing device management window may be different. A map view shows the dog’s last position and time.  The management view of the tracking device displays the last signal received from the tracker, which may not include its location.

GPS signal 

Displays the number of fixed satellites from the tracking deviece. Your device must connect to at least 3 to 4 satellites to determine your location. The higher number of fixed satellites, the more accurate location of the tracking device will be displayed.  The maximum number of fixed satellites is 12.

How accurately a device will display  its location in tracking mode depends on several factors:

  • Strenght of GPS signal. The device requires a strong connection to satellites to pinpoint your exact location. Being indoors, the possibility of output required signal strength is small, resulting in a weak signal or no signal at all.   Bad weather conditions also might affect how quickly the device is able to connect.
  • Strenght fluctuations of GPS signal. To receive a fixed satellite is needed to have the same strength of the signal. GPS signal fluctuations are usually caused by a glazed window inside (the gas used in the windows affects GPS signal propagation). The stability of GPS signal is also affected by dogs activities – its movements are sudden, within GPS signals fluctuate on the tracking device while a dog is running.

In the list of tracking devices (select “Tracking devices” from a menu),  the user is shown all devices associated with him – the ones he owns and the ones that have been shared with him. Sheard devices are on a dark background and cannot be viewed or edited. Each tracker shows the device icon, device GSM number, the name of the device and it displays the last signal received from the tracker.

There is no limit to tracking devices you can connect to. The tracker is managed in the tracking device management view (from the menu select “Tracking devices”, then desired device).

In the device management view in-app, you can send the desired actions to the device. Any actions are taken by call or text message to your device:

  • To switch to device tracking mode, press “Start” and the phone will automatically start calling to tracker. When the command is understood, the tracker automatically ends the call. NB! Due to technical issues with the phone operator, the user may also receive a “Service failed, please try again later” message. In this case, the device will start work;
  • To call the device and listen to what is going around it, in-app, press the phone symbol and it will start a call to the tracking device (it must be turned on and in tracking mode). The device automatically answers the call and it can be up to 60 seconds long;
  • To turn off the device from tracking mode, press the “Stop” and the phone will send a text message to the tracker. The content of the sent message is “0”;
  • To change the tracking device time of interval,  select “Set interval” and enter the desired time in seconds. Then send a text message to the tracking device number. The content of the message is “1” + the user-entered interval (for example, “115” is sent to the device, interval timing is 15 seconds).  When you send an interval change command to the device in standby mode, the device automatically switches to tracking mode. The trackers’ interval can be from 1 to 99 seconds. NB! The shorter the tracking interval, the higher is battery consumption of the device.

The Huntloc up can be used to view dogs’ route and total distance.

To do it, you must:

  • Go to the dog tracking device management view (select “Tracking devices” and the desired tracking device from the menu).
  • Press the motion history button (map with a broken arrow). When you press it, the sign turns orange.

Huntloci requires a data connection to work and GPS-based positioning, which is quite a burden for your mobile phone. Here are 10 recommendations to help ensure that the mobile phone would work the whole day of hunting:

  1. Turn on GPS and mobile communication only during hunt. At other times (eg, lunch break or a meeting turn it off.
  2. Turn off other possible applications that continuously exchange data to the server (eg, e-mail, calendar, Skype, etc.).
  3. View the phone screen when it is necessary. Mobile screen takes a lot of energy, and it strains the battery significantly.
  4. Set the phone screen brightness as low as possible. Very high brightness of the screen is nice to look at, but it takes lots of power.
  5. Set Huntloci application data exchange intervals, depending on whether you move, or you stand. Huntlocis position reporting interval can be determined even one minute. This saves battery power. Changing the location of the interval is available since version 1.5.2.
  6. Use Power Bank. There are different sizes and allow to charge your phone several times.
  7. Use car charger to charge your phone during longer pauses while you can.
  8. Examine the acquisition of a new phone battery capacity. The higher the number, the longer the battery typically lasts.
  9. Hold the phone as possibly warm. Cold battery capacity decreases very significantly.
  10. Get a new battery for your phone .
