Troubleshooting

If you have your own server, please read this for trouble shooting:
http://forum.gpsgate.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=10315

To monitor data communication between tracker and server you can use the "Terminal". More info here:
http://forum.gpsgate.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=10740

If you can see data coming in from the GPS tracker in the Terminal, but you still don't get a position on the map, you can send the output from the Terminal to us together with information about your GPS tracker and we will take a look at it. Send it to "support at gpsgate . com"

Use Template Commands to manage your trackers remotely:

Different name, same tracker
Meiligao's trackers can appear under different brands and names. Here are some of them:
PST-AVL01 (same as VT300)
Bofan PT60, PT300X, PT30

Some tips on writing Template Commands for Meiligao/ Meitrack VT300, VT310, GT30 and GT60

The SMS protocol is straight forward and should not cause any problems.

However the protocol over GPRS is different from SMS, and includes things like length specifications, binary ID, and CRC checksum. Those things cannot be specified in the current template Command editor, instead the GpsGate Meiligao driver automatically adds this data.

A GPRS command send from the server to the tracker is built up like this:
@@<L><ID><Command><Data><Checksum>\r\n

In the Template Command you should only specify the Command and Data parts in hex format, the rest is added by GpsGate before sending the command to the tracker.

Here is an example for the Output Control command 0x4114.

Code: Select all

[0x41][0x14][0x01][0x00][0x01][0x00][0x01]
Command will open output1, output3 and output5 and close output2 and output4

Please check the tracker documentation for command specifications, or post your questions to the forum and we'll try to answer them all.

Regards,
Johan

Tips when writing Template Commands for MVT340/MVT380/MVT100/MVT600/MT88/MT80A

When writing Template Commands for Meitrack MVT and MT trackers you only need to write the actual command + parameters. GpsGate will add framing data like checksum, device password, IMEI and prefix for you. The same Template Command can be used for both SMS and GPRS. This is best explained with some examples.

To make a command that requests one position over SMS create a Template Command:

A00

What is actually sent to the device is "0000,A00". GpsGate adds a default "0000" device password for you.

A command that tracks by distance every 1000 meters looks like:

A14,1000

What is actually sent over SMS is "0000,A14,1000"
And what is actually sent over GPRS is "@@D30,353358017784062,A14,1000*4A\r\n" assuming the IMEI of the device is "353358017784062".

You will see the command both without and with framing data in the Terminal.

Johan

OTA (Over The Air) firmware upgrade

1. Install 'DeviceManager' plugin from labsupdate.gpsgate.com. More information about this plugin and how to use it can be found here: http://forum.gpsgate.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=14318

2. Under VehicleTracker -> Windows -> DeviceManager select the Tag of devices for which to upgrade the firmware

3. Select the command '_UpgradeMeitrackFirmware', set the variables "ip=serverIP,port=serverPort,filename=otaFileName", where:
- serverIP: the IP of the server where the OTA file is located,
- serverPort: the Port of the server where the OTA file is located,
- otaFileName: the OTA file name to which the device should be updated.

Please contact Meitrack support to get those variables.

4. Execute the command.
