Congratulations on purchasing a MaxiTracker from SweTrack! The articles in this section of the knowledge wiki explain how to get started with your new device. Getting started with the MaxiTracker is a walk in the park; just charge the product's battery, activate a data plan and log in to our app - that's all you need to do!
This article helps you get familiar with the device's exterior and explains how to charge the battery in order to prepare the device for first use.
The device's exterior
The front side of the device is the part of the device that contains the SweTrack logotype. This side of the product contains three LED indicators and a power button. These are described further into the article.
On the back of the device, you'll find the mounting sensor which allows the device to determine whether it is mounted against a magnetic surface or not. The magnet is attached to the product but can be removed by pushing down on the latch as indicated on the back of the device.
The charging port that's found on the side of the device uses a magnetic connector, much like the connector used on certain portable computers. It is very important that you only use the supplied USB cable and charger to charge the device's battery; if at any point you misplace the cable and need a new one, please contact customer service to order a new cable.
The device has three LED indicator diods as described above. These indicators work as follows:
- The GSM indicator flashes quickly when the device is searching for GSM (mobile network) signal, and flashes slowly when the device is connected to the network and uploads data.
- The Power indicator flashes quickly when the device is running out of power, flashes slowly when the device is plugged in for charging and is off when the device is either plugged in and fully charged or operating at a normal voltage level.
- The GPS indicator flashes while the device is geolocating itself, and is off when no locating is in process.
Charging and powering up the device
Before commencing use of the device, please charge the battery for at least three hours by connecting the magnetic connector on the supplied USB cable to the charging port on the device's side. The power indicator will turn off when the device is finished charging.
When the battery is fully charged, turn on the device by holding the power button for about three seconds or until the indicators begin to flash. The device can be powered off by holding the power button until the indicators stop flashing.
You are now ready to begin using your MaxiTracker device. Please keep reading the other articles in the knowledge wiki in order to learn how to sign up for a data plan and sign into the SweTrack Live app.
