*Device operates on the Roger's cellular network and requires that the device be in an area with Rogers Network coverage. As with all GPS location services, determination of location may not be possible. Multi-level buildings and other obstructions reduce the accuracy of exact location by GPS satellites.
**Recommended daily charging for 1 - 2 hours
A: Your GPS Watch uses both RF and GSM technology to communicate position data.
- When within RF range of the Portable RF Receiver, which is kept by the caregiver, the watch is in proximity. The RF range is configurable on the Portable RF Receiver.
- Indoor ranges, typically - Low: 30 - 60ft; Medium: 60 - 90ft; High: 130 - 160ft.
- Outdoor ranges, typically - Low: 60 - 90ft; Medium: 130 - 160ft; High: 250 - 325ft.
(The Indoor and Outdoor ranges are an estimate and may vary because of obstructions like buildings; landscapes; etc.)
A: The transmitter component of the GPS Watch tracking system includes a portable receiver which notifies the caregiver of a wandering event through the use of GSM & GPS technologies. If an "At Risk" individual wearing a GPS Watch breaches the Safe-zone the portable receiver will sound an audible alert. An LCD display will then flash red indicating your loved one has wandered from the Geo-criteria you have set. Your GPS Watch will generate an e-mail alert and send an SMS (text message) with the time/date and location of the wandering event. When the GPS Watch is in proximity of the portable receiver (no breach of safe-zone) the GPS Watch and the portable receiver communicate via RF. No alerts are sent and live tracking is not possible. In 'RF Mode' the battery life of the GPS Watch is longer.
