The device is primarily a GPS device for when your pet is outdoors. For outdoor location working on GPS (Global Positioning Satellite), this means it gets its position when the device is outdoors and can access a satellite. When you are looking at the location map on our App you will see a location bubble, on the left hand side of this bubble, you will see a Satellite icon to indicate that the device is working off GPS, or an Ariel for LBS or WiFi, to give you its current location.

When the device is indoors and GPS is displayed on the App, up you can sometimes get shadowing which can make the GPS location display anywhere from 10 meters to 100+ meters from its actual location.

GPS indicates satellite positioning and its accuracy is 3 meters to 30 meters. When the device is indoors and GPS is displayed on the App, up you can sometimes get shadowing which can make the GPS location display anywhere from 10 meters to 100+ meters from its actual location.

LBS (Local Base Station) can be displayed when the device is indoors and this indicates cellular positioning which is usually accurate from 100 meters to 1000+ meters depending on the distance away from your nearest mobile phone base station that the device is registered to.

With regards to GPS working inside of buildings, GPS signals are carried through waves at a frequency that does not move easily through solid objects. A GPS device relies on a series of satellites in order to determine where it is physically located. The signals sent from these satellites do not penetrate all kinds of barriers with ease. When you use a GPS inside a building, a wide variety of physical barriers and potential interference sources make it difficult for the device to pinpoint your location accurately.

In general GPS devices are designed for outdoor use, therefore they are not as accurate when used indoors. Please note that when locating a device indoors the location can show as the house next door, or a lot further away depending on the LBS unit it is connected to. It is important to look at the location box to see if the watch is using GPS or LBS/WiFi for location as LBS and WiFi is not as reliable.


The PetTrackie will send you its location approximately every 60 seconds. You can change the Tracking mode in Manage to Manual mode if you only want the location to update each time you press the Loc button on the map screen. Manual mode will extend the time between battery charges.

If you have the device set in Manual mode, the device will send it’s position only when you press the Loc button on the map screen. Press the Loc icon on the bottom left of the map screen to check the current position of the device.

You can change the map view to satellite map, 2D map, or 3D map by pressing the circular icon near the top right hand side of the screen.
