5. How Spotter works
Spotter determines the current location through the Global Positioning System (GPS). The highest class of GPS is used to provide an accurate reading of the
current location. These locations are then sent to your online account where you can view all of the data.
5.1. Using for the first time
Charge your Spotter for 2 or 3 hours until it is fully charged before using it for the first time. Use the USB cable and charger provided. The blue LED light will
go out when the battery is fully charged.
5.2. Switching on or off
Press and hold the On/Off button for 1 second to switch the Spotter on. The LED lights will now flash rapidly. While it is charging the Spotter switches on
automatically. To establish the location, activate Spotter outside or near a window for a good GPS signal.
To turn Spotter off, press and hold the SOS button and the On/Off button for 3 seconds, until all the LED lights switch off.
6. Getting started
6.1. Create an account
Spotter is connected to an online account in which you can view and manage all data. Go to www.spottergps.com and click on "Login." If you do not have an
account yet, create your account here.
6.2. Connecting Spotter
Log into your online account. You will then be prompted to enter your Spotter code. Enter the Spotter code as it is printed on the card in the package, which
is a unique code. You now have an online account and your Spotter has been linked, which means that Spotter has been activated!
6.3. Download the App
While on the road you can also view data through the Spotter app for Smartphones and Tablets. The Spotter app is available for iOS and Android devices
and it is available to download in the App Store (iOS) and Play Store (Android).

7. Functions
As standard Spotter comes with the features as described below.
7.1. Automatic location display
Spotter is fitted with a motion sensor that detects the difference between motion and being stationary. When on the move location data is automatically
sent out every 60 seconds, which can immediately be viewed through your online account or via the Spotter app. When Spotter is not in motion location
data is sent out every 30 minutes. All locations can be seen for 24 hours, after which the data is deleted.
7.2. SOS alarm
Press and hold the SOS button on the front of Spotter for 3 seconds. An audio prompt will then sound and the green LED light will start to flash rapidly. The
connected user then receives an SOS message with the Spotter name and the location.
7.3. Start a telephone call
You can also call to Spotter, e.g. if the person is in an emergency situation or if you simply want to make contact. To do that, login to the Spotter app and
click on the telephone icon. An audio prompt sounds for two seconds on the Spotter, after which a telephone connection is automatically established. To
end the call the Spotter wearer must click on the telephone icon on the side of Spotter.
7.4. Setting a safety zone
Login to your online account and set zones within which the Spotter should remain. Simply draw a circle over an area to define the boundaries. As soon as a
location is received that falls outside of the zone you will immediate receive a notification.
Please note: make sure the Spotter has good GPS coverage (blue LED light flashes quickly) before setting the safety zone.
7.5. Messages/notifications
All messages sent from the Spotter such as location reports and notifications are received through the online account, by e-mail and via a push message
through the Spotter app.
7.6. Low battery
When the battery level falls below 15% a notification is sent out and the blue LED light starts to flash more rapidly.
