How Does the Tracker's Location Function Work?

GPS location is a key element of your Weenect tracker, but there may be times when its accuracy is not as expected. Several factors influence the precision of location, and understanding these nuances is essential. Fortunately, with this knowledge, you can always find your loved ones, even if the accuracy of the tracker sometimes varies.


The Distinction Between GPS Signal and Network Connection

The optimal functioning of your tracker relies on two essential components: the GPS signal and the GSM connection. Each plays a distinct and crucial role in the location of your tracker.

The GPS Signal: Your Weenect tracker derives its location capability from GPS signals emitted by satellites. Thanks to an integrated GPS module and antenna, the tracker can capture these signals and determine its exact position in terms of longitude and latitude. When the GPS signal is valid, your tracker provides an accurate location. However, in case of an invalid GPS signal, it cannot determine the exact coordinates of its position.


The Necessity of a Good Connection

The network connection, or GSM connection, plays a role just as important as the GPS signal. This connection allows the tracker to transmit location information to your Weenect app. Without a network connection, even with a valid GPS signal, the tracker will not be able to send location data.



In conclusion, for optimal location, your Weenect tracker depends on both a valid GPS signal and a stable network connection. Understanding these two aspects will help you better interpret location data and use your tracker more effectively.
