Custom Poll messages

For custom poll messages, please contact and we will add a Device Type with custom fields.


If you have your own server, please read this for troubleshooting:

To monitor data communication between tracker and server you can use the "Terminal". More info here:

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:
