Configuration Recommendation
The Skypatrol Mobile Tracker family of products is designed with features to support a robust
connection with the network. However, there can be conditions when the connection to the network or
the ability to transfer data across the network is beyond the control of the device alone.
For installations that require maximum connectivity, we strongly recommend implementing choices 1
AND 3:
1.
Ensure that the ignition’s wire is connected to a switched ignition source.
2.
Use the PING option of the AT-Command AT$TTNETWD to verify end to end
connectivity.
3.
Use type 25 (ACKED) messages instead of type 20 UDP messages, to verify endto-end connectivity.
Using option # 3 will increase the data rates of the end user because of the transmission
retries. The ACK message is 5 bytes, plus the IP header, plus the Ethernet frame.

TT9200must initiate a conversation with a remote server before the remote
server can talk to the Skypatrol TT9200.
 IP addresses are dynamically assigned and can change.
 Some IP addresses are NAT and are non-routable IP addresses.
11. Give the Skypatrol TT9200a unique name.
 Send the following command: AT$TTDEVID=”TT9200”
This command, combined with the wakeup message, will allow the server to
associate a Public IP address with a specific Skypatrol TT9200and create a
window of opportunity where the server can send commands to the
Skypatrol TT9200.

Follow these directions to verify GPS Operation.
1. From the terminal window send the following command: AT$TTGPSQRY=10<CR>
2. The Skypatrol TT9200should respond with a standard GPRMC message that looks similar to the
following:
$TTGPSQRY:GPRMC,161910.00,A,2548.12723,N,08019.93367,W,0.000,0.0,030114,,,D*4D
OK
Note: The entry shown in bold is the current GPS status. There are three possible values here:
 A = OK
 V = Warning
 9 = Skypatrol Specific response that GPS solution is not valid and the last known GPS
location is being substituted.
- 31 -
TT9200 User Guide
Here is an example of a GPRMC message without a GPS lock:
$TTGPSQRY:GPRMC,162639.00,V,,,,,,,030114,,,N*72
The same command can be used in the server app.
Additional Software Features
The following software features are included in the Skypatrol TT9200:
A user can send AT commands, via SMS, to the Skypatrol TT9200.
It’s just needed to send an SMS with the AT command to the Skypatrol TT9200 SIM cellular phone
The ability to store event data in memory, upon event trigger occurrence, and transmit data when
desired.

“Total Number of Unread Messages” is decremented if an unread message is read via the
AT$TTLOGRD command.
Example: Assume there are 50 unread messages in the GPRS queue and the total number of
messages in GPRS queue is 100. This means that the first 50 messages have been read while the
last 50 messages have not been read. If a user sends AT$GPSLOGRD=0,1,51 then the total
number of unread messages drops down to 49 after successful transmission of that message.
However, if a user sends AT$GPSLOGRD=0,1,99 then the total number of unread messages drops
down to one – those messagesare transmitted to the remote server.

A user can also read a message that has already been read from the memory by passing in the
appropriate starting index number.
Synchronize RTC time with GPS time



RTC time is synched with GPS time automatically
RTC time is synched with GPS time every time the device is powered up and the device acquires
valid GPS data
RTC time is synched with GPS time every time the GPS time rolls over from 23:59:59 to 00:00:01
