    Yes, I got it working last night. I think you need to set up the APN for your sim and then the app works. It's called the 'track anywhere' app on the iphone - on the account screen you use the ID number on the back of the tracker and the password

    Q:What does the RF-V16 do?

    A: It is a security device for emergency communications capable of being remotely monitored. Basically, it is a miniature mobile phone limited to calling any 2-5 pre-programmed numbers, which makes it ideal for children and seniors.


    Q: What’s the difference between a RF-V16 and a mobile phone?

    A: The RF-V16 is tiny (4cm X 3.5cm X 1.5 cm), extremely light weight, simple to use in that it operates with a single button push. Both the RF-V16 and a mobile phone require a SIM card and both can receive calls from any phone.


    Q: Will the RF-V16 work with any SIM card?

    A: Yes. With all GSM network. Please note the RF-V16 use the Micro SIM card.


    Q:Which function does the RF-V16’s SIM need ?

    A: Please make sure the SIM have Caller id and GPRS function ,please close the voice mail function.


    Q: How many GPRS data does RF-V16 need monthly ?

    A:Less 30MB/month, Our test results showed 20MB is enough.



    Q: Is it hard to program the RF-V16?

    A: No. It is easy , two text messages can complete basic operation


    Q:How long does theRF-V16 last between charges?

    A: Close GPS tracking function, only keep communication ,it will stand-by 12days.

    Turn on the GPS tracking function, and every 10 min update location , it will work about 50 hours.

    Turn on the GPS tracking function ,and verey 1 min update location, it will work about 6 hours.

    Talk time is about 4 hours.

    please choose the corresponding work mode and position reporting frequency.


    Q: Is the RF-V16 waterproof?

    A: Water resistant, yes. Waterproof, no.


    Q: Are children more vulnerable to cell phone radiation than adults?

    A: Yes. A Google search on children and phone radiation will reveal that the consensus is children are more susceptible to its harmful effects. ensure the safety of children.the RF-V16's radiation is only 1/5 of the European Union CE, FCC national standard force index


    Q: Why is the RF - V16’s radiation so low?

    A: For child health, V16 reduced a little GSM antenna signal, the signal is proportional to the radiation, the greater the power the higher radiation. The signal of cell phone is 33 db, but RF-V16 is 27db, every 3 db,the radiation will be double

    So when the mobile phone with very poor signal, the RF-V16 may be no signal.


    Q: After GSM antenna signal is reduced, the child will not get any help during they are in danger?

    A:When the signal is weaken, it will affected the GPRS function at first, and then the SMS function, finally the voice communications. So when the kids encounter danger, they can press any key for a SOS call preferentially, even if the tracker under an extreme conditions, it also can ensure the communication smoothly.



    Q:How about the RF-V16’s GPS Positioning accuracy?

    A:GPS Positioning accuracy is 10-15m with open sky ,clear and cloudless. Within general situation the GPS positioning accuracy is about 30m.



    Q: compared with the car GPS, why does V16’s positioning accuracy less to the car GPS?

    A:1. Because of car GPS board size is large, so the internal circuit interference is small, and the GPS antenna size is more than V16. So the precision is relatively will better.

    2. As a result of V16’s positioning is single positioning, So accuracy is less than continuous positioning products.


    Q:Why does RF-V16 useing single positioning?

    A:All personal GPS tracker have a big problem , battery life.

    In order to save battery life, the RF-V16 will close the GPS function when upload the positioning data to platform.so V16 every location is actually cool boot.

    If set the V16 positioning interval to 1 minute, the GPS will never go to sleep then the positioning accuracy would be much better, but the standby time will short about 6 hours.


    Q:The RF-V16 reply :ID:8401019128;GSM:good, GPS:invalid, battery:70%, model:AJ,tracking:ON. When I send dsp#,but what is the mean GPS :invalid?

    A:In order to save battery life, the RF-V16 will close the GPS function when upload the positioning data to platform.

    That is mean GPS only work a short time, Most of the time the GPS is sleep. So the GPS situation is invalid.


    Q: why do the devive send different messages when dw# ?

    A:There are 4 SMS with different situation

    1. Tracking on (with gon# command ), GPS positioning success ,the SMS should be : :(GPS):Huaxin Road, Futian, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China, 518000 http://www.gps123.org/MapByDevice.aspx? ... =114.08009



    2.tracking on, GPS positioning is failure , the device will send LBS data, SMS should be :LBS:Huaxin Road, Futian, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China, 518000 http://www.gps123.org/MapByDevice.aspx? ... =114.07940



    3,tracking off(with goff# command) or GPRS not work.GPS positioning success ,the SMS should be: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=N22.550892,E114.080124



    4.tracking off(with goff# command) or GPRS not work.GPS positioning is failure ,the SMS should be: http://www.trackanywhere.org/LBSQuery/L ... &lan=zh-cn



    Q:RF-V16 take 1-2 min then reply the location to me ,when I send dw#. Why?

    A: V16 every location is actually cool boot. So it will take 1-2min to search GPS signal.

    Q: Why the RF-V16 refuse all SOS number call with mt# and aj# situation?

    A:please confirm the V16’s SIM have caller ID function. If not ,the V16 can not identify incoming call number,so it will refuse all incoming calls.


    Q: Can we replace the battery?

    How do you set up the apn for sim?
    Does it ping every 10 minutes and leave a location to see on the app?

    To set apn send the apn,(apn name,user,(username),pd,(password)# command

    If you haven't changed the times then standard is ten mins. If you want it every minute change it to tim,1# or tim,2# and so on. i have left mine as standard as I have live track data off

    I used command goff# to turn data off. So now sending dw# makes it boot and search for GPS location and send back a Google map link

    With data off you should get a google maps link, unless you are somewhere where it can't get GPS signal. Try it outside the house.

    See above:
    3,tracking off(with goff# command) or GPRS not work.GPS positioning success ,the SMS should be: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=N22.550892,E114.080124



    4.tracking off(with goff# command) or GPRS not work.GPS positioning is failure ,the SMS should be: http://www.trackanywhere.org/LBSQuery/L ... &lan=zh-cn



    If you want data on for live tracking then you will get the following results:

    1. Tracking on (with gon# command ), GPS positioning success ,the SMS should be : :(GPS):Huaxin Road, Futian, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China, 518000 http://www.gps123.org/MapByDevice.aspx? ... =114.08009



    2.tracking on, GPS positioning is failure , the device will send LBS data, SMS should be :LBS:Huaxin Road, Futian, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China, 518000 http://www.gps123.org/MapByDevice.aspx? ... =114.07940

    GPS sleeping I get the track anywhere is that correct?

    Maybe I wasn't getting the maps link with data off due to apn not set correctly?


    So what is the most battery efficient mode and still able to get a location on demand? Data off set with Long time intervals?

    I will be getting a large number of these soon. This version will not have the sos and speed dial buttons.
    It works with a free app - you can also use the app to send commands to the device and track. More info email me on info@pawtrax.co.uk
