A perfect partner mobile phone is an iPhone or one the many New Android Smart Phones which have a GPS device and are capable of running the Google Maps application. This application which is usually pre-installed as standard on Smart Phones, recognize Co-Ordinates in the text message and opens a map centred around that location and at the touch of the screen it can change this to a Satellite picture, a Hybrid or even drop down into Street View if the location is near a supported road. Directions from your current location to the unit can also be given.
What you need to do before you Start
Prepare Your SIM by inserting it into a mobile phone, Switch Off Voicemail, Top up with credit and checking it is capable of sending texts, receiving calls and that Caller ID is working.
Open the GTS-100, insert Sim, connect Battery, Close the case using the provided screwdriver. Charge the battery. Once charged Switch the unit on, outside on open ground. Send 4 simple SMS text messages to the unit which will authorise mobile phones, set the time zone, define the information in SMS messages it sends and ready the unit for use.
It is ready to use
Attach to your bird, before releasing ensure unit is functioning properly by attempting to make a voice call from the mobile you have authorised to the unit. It may ring for a second and then hang up.
When the unit receives a call from an Authorised number it will start it’s GPS system and locate it’s position and then Text this back to the Mobile that phoned. If all is well your mobile should be displaying a map of the area and pinpointing the exact location within 5 Meters (Usually within 2-3 Meters).
Because the unit receives it’s command by SMS it’s configuration can literally be changed in flight. If you wish the unit will inform you it’s location at regular intervals, it can inform you if it enters an area you have defined, or leaves an area you have defined ( known as Geo-Fencing ), it can also tell you if it’s battery is getting low allowing you to retrieve the bird, or enable a power saving sleep or standby mode so you can do it later. Of course most of the time you will just be ringing it for it’s exact location, which ultimately is what the unit excels at .
