What's New in Version 1.5
iOS6 & iPhone5 compatibility
Delayed location reporting is overt
This app has tendencies to report or show inaccurate vehicle locations. There have been many occasions of delayed vehicle location and ignition on/off status as long as 15 minutes later. Also, this app often reports a vehicle ignition off status long before the ignition on status is reported. Additionally, the failure to report a vehicle entering set alert zones, before it reports it leaving the zone. Things are reported out of sequence and delayed longer than 10 seconds (delays have averaged 5 to 8 minutes). I'm normally a positive thinker, but this is an app not worth placing full trust for reliability. The company really needs to fix these issues with the mobile service provider, not just blame them.
Will it give a location? - yes
But this is about as far as the app goes. Absolutely useless for live tracking. It is intermittent at best when updating positions of moving trackers and then is far behind actual position. The mobile web site is much superior and puts you 20-30 seconds behind the actual location. This app is 30 seconds to several minutes behind.
AND to pay $4/ mo per unit to use the app? Gotta throw the BS flag on that one.
If the app had a 10-20sec refresh rate AND had the capability of putting the mobile device's position on the map with the tracker, that would be worth paying for.
No reason to charge an extra monthly fee
The monthly cost for the base service is already too high. Why add an extra $3 each month just to use a limited app?
