We are excited to release our dedicated Android app for the Spytec GPS platform. We will continue to add great new features and increase the app's functionality so that you get the most out of your Spytec GPS account. Here are the basics to help you get familiar with the new app.
When you first login to the Spytec GPS App for Android you will be greeted with a full screen map that displays all your GPS trackers. The map is just like the map on our regular platform with full zoom control and scrolling.
Clicking on an individual tracker icon will take you to a zoomed-in view of that tracker’s last known location. It will also display the current battery life, last known address, current speed, and the date.
Along the bottom of the tracker details pop up, you have quick links to access all alerts that have been triggered by the selected tracker as well as a quick link to all of the tracker’s logged activities. This gives you instant access to all the detailed information about specific trackers without having to filter a report or navigate to another screen.
Another valuable feature of the tracker panel is the follow option. Clicking the follow option will lock the map view to the tracker and follow it through any trips made. This gives you the ability to keep tabs on a tracker during a trip, without having to worry about re-center the view, the app will keep the tracker in focus.
In addition to all of the information available on the tracker display, there are two easy to read condensed reports. The Activities page gives a filterable view of all the logged trips and stops logged by all of the trackers on your account. It will display the date and time of the event, the duration, the start and end addresses of any trips, as well as the total distance covered.
If you click on any of the activity tiles, the map will display the location of the stop or the route taken during the trip.
You can also click the positions link to see all of the individual pings collected during the trip, which will display the approximate address, the date, and time, as well as the speed the tracker was travelling at the time the ping was logged. The individual pings are also clickable, taking you to a zoomed-in map view of the single ping.
In addition to the Activities page, you can also access the Alerts page, which gives you an organized view of all the alerts triggered by any of your trackers. These alerts can range from speed alerts and low battery alerts to boundary entry and exit notifications.
These alert tiles are also fully clickable and can display the location of any of the logged alerts with a simple click.
