LiveTrack Canberra

Features

  • No Fees
  • No External Antennas
  • Incredibly Small Size
  • Encrypted Tracking App
  • Track Unlimited Vehicles
  • G-Sensor Notification Activation

How Does It Work?

The LiveTrack uses GPS satellites to determine the exact location of the tracker and then uses the mobile phone network to transfer that location data directly to your smartphone.

Using the free iCar App, your Android phone or iPhone will allow you to see where the tracker is located. You can also view where the tracker has been on previous days using the Location History feature.

You can set up a Geofence or virtual boundary so that you will be alerted if the tracker goes out of that boundary. When you park your car or boat you can also activate the Parking Monitor and, you will receive an alert on your phone as soon as your tracker starts moving!

You can add an unlimited number of trackers to your phone app, so you rest assured knowing all of your vehicles/toys are accounted for.

You can even share your trackers location with others so multiple people will know where the tracker is located at anytime. This can only be done by sharing your tracker’s unique number and password, safeguarding you from anyone else being able to track it.

People who you have given permission to share the tracking of your car or boat or?? can only view where the tracker is at the present time – they cannot set a Geofence or view History or turn on your Parking Monitor or change any other settings … only you as the primary owner can do that!

Are there any running costs?

After purchasing your LiveTrack there are no ongoing subscription or management fees! So the only ongoing cost is the data usage on your SIM card and, in the case of the pre-fitted ALDI SIM card, that will be only about $15 per year!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Will the iCar App work on any phone?

The iCar App can be installed on any iPhone or Android smartphone.

Can I track more than one car, boat or motorbike at once?

You can track an unlimited number of vehicles through the iCar app, to add a new tracking device simply select “ADD NEW TRACKER” and follow the instructions.

Can I allow my friends or family to track my vehicle?

Yes. They just install the free iCar App on their phone and add your tracker to it. To do this you need to give them the IMEI code of your tracker and the share code you have selected and then they can instantly see where your vehicle is. For safety reasons they will only have access to your current vehicle location and cannot set geofences or change any settings.

How do I know if my car has been stolen?

If you want to be alerted when your car moves without you in it then use the Parking Monitor feature. When you park your car simply press the grey “P” icon on your iCar “Current Location” screen. The icon will turn blue when activated. The tracker uses a g-sensor trigger that will detect movement and you will be alerted immediately by receiving a notification on your phone.

How do I know if my boat/trailer has been stolen?

If you want to be alerted when your valuable is stolen from a garage or parking spot then use the Parking Monitor feature as explained in the previous question. If the boat is moored on water and may be moving regularly then, instead of using the Parking Monitor method, simply set a Geofence or virtual boundary. If your boat leaves that designated boundary you will again be alerted immediately.

Is the tracking in "real time"?

You can choose how often you need updates from the tracker. You can choose any of the 5 options ranging from 30 seconds updates to 2 hour updates. You can set this on your phone via the app. If the tracker is in Sleep mode (designed to save power usage) because it hasn’t moved for several minutes, the tracker will update every 2 hours just to save power.

What happens if the tracker is in an area with no 3G mobile coverage?

We have addressed many issues in developing the LiveTrack but this is one that we can do nothing about. If the tracker is in an area with no mobile phone coverage then it cannot send the data to you and will not update on your phone until it moves back into mobile phone coverage.

How can I check if my SIM activation is OK?

Call the mobile phone number you have been given by ALDI Mobile and if it rings, hangs up and you get a text giving you the current location then all is good. If it goes straight to a voice mail then there is no power to the unit or there is an issue with the SIM card activation.

What ongoing costs are involved after I have purchased my LiveTrack?

The great news is that there is virtually no added ongoing costs to monitor the tracker because it is all self-managed by you. After purchasing your LiveTrack there are no ongoing subscription or management fees. Simply set up a data alert with your Aldi Sim-card when it is running low and top up when necessary.

What if I want to use a different SIM Card?

We recommend using prepaid SIM cards in your LiveTrack. In fact we supply the trackers pre-fitted with a SIM card from ALDI that operates on the Telstra mobile network. Although you can use SIM cards from other telcos we use the ALDI Telstra SIM card as it offers 12 month expiry on data usage and has great coverage Australia wide.

The APN to allow your tracker to send location data to your smartphone has also
already been set up for you.

The SIM card has $5 prepaid credit on it that will generally last at least 6 months but the SIM card needs to be activated for the tracker to work. Easy to follow instructions come with the tracker to allow you to activate your SIM card.

You can add credit to your SIM card at any time by simply logging on to your new ALDI account. Even with the most frequent location updates $15 credit should last a full year!

If you prefer to use an alternative SIM card such as Telstra mobile, Vodafone or Optus you can replace the pre-fitted SIM card with the SIM card of your choice. In these cases you may have to set up a new APN specific to the SIM card brand you are using and be aware that these telcos may charge you monthly fees as part of their data plans and this may be more expensive than the ALDI rate.

The APN for other providers are as follows:

Telstra: telstra.internet

Optus: yesinternet

Vodafone: live.vodafone.com

Aldi: mdata.net.au

To setup the APN send the following text message to the number linked to your tracker. The following example shows you how to setup the telstra APN on your tracker.

510#0000#telstra.internet

So the only ongoing cost is the data usage on your SIM card and, in the case of the pre-fitted ALDI SIM card, that will be only about $15 per year!

What if I have no reception?

The GPS receiver in the LiveTrack works much like your car’s GPS navigation or mobile phone, take it underground or under thick layers of concrete/steel and it will lose reception.

So if your car happens to be parked in a building or under a house or anywhere that can cover the tracker from the sky chances are you may not get GPS reception but you can use Location History to see where your car travelled up to the last minute before it lost the GPS location.
