Trakkit™ GPS User Guide
Meet your Trakkit GPS
The most versatile GPS tracking device on the market, Trakkit provides an innovative solution for your tracking needs that uses Wi-Fi instead of Cellular for GPS tracking, including alerts, motion detection and temperature monitoring. A micro USB port is provided to use external power (this does not charge the battery, Trakkit uses disposable lithium batteries).
Battery Installation & Removal
Batteries come pre-installed in your Trakkit. To access the battery compartment in your Trakkit, remove the bottom plate by gently prying open the side barbs, one barb at a time.
Once open, carefully insert AAA batteries one at a time, paying close attention to the positive and negative contact ends. Replace bottom cover in a way such that the grooves cover the batteries.
USE ONLY ENERGIZER ULTIMATE LITHIUM AAA BATTERIES (TYPE L92) (Do not use Alkaline Batteries)
Setup Your Trakkit GPS:
To start using your Trakkit install the mobile phone app available on the App Store and Google Play. Through this app, you will receive tracking alerts, notifications, firmware updates, activate your account, register devices and manage your service subscription. You may also use your browser and visit the web app at: https://trakkit.us
Trakkit™ is an implementer member of the Wi-Fi Alliance® and this product is Wi-Fi CERTIFIED® for consumer use.
STEP 1. Create an Account and Add your Trakkit GPS:
Once you install the Trakkit App, Open the App, then select Sign Up to create an Account. Then the main menu will be displayed, click the top right menu to Add Device. Type the MAC address found on the back of your Trakkit and choose a descriptive Name. Do this for each of your new Trakkits.
STEP 2. Connect to your Trakkit GPS:
For first time activation, plug in the provided USB cable in the area shown to put your Trakkit into Wi-Fi Configuration mode. If the Yellow light starts flashing (and blue light solid), jump to STEP 3 “Configure your Trakkit GPS”
If you see a solid Yellow light from the LED window, gently double tap the device until a blue light appears, then double tap again (within 6 seconds) and the yellow light begins flashing, see STEP 3.
STEP 3. Configure your Trakkit GPS:
If the yellow light is flashing while the blue light remains solid, the device is now in Configuration (Access Point) mode and is ready to connect with your mobile phone.
If the yellow light does not begin flashing, unplug the device, wait 5 seconds, and repeat STEP 2.
- Open your Phone Wi-Fi Settings, look for and Connect to “Trakkit-xxxx“ (where xxxx are the last 4 of the MAC ID)
- Once connected, open your web browser and navigate to http://123.45.1 (or tap “manage router” on android) in your browser to access the Trakkit Setup page.
- Then type or copy and paste the SSID and Password of the Wi-Fi network you wish to designate as a “Home” and select “Add Profile”.
You may add up to 4 “Home” networks for Trakkit to recognize, or even add your mobile Hotspot.
When finished, unplug the cable (or select Reboot). Your Trakkit is ready to use.
Note: At least 1 Home Profile must be added for Trakkit to work properly (i.e. Upload GPS Logs, Firmware updates, etc.) Also, periodically, Trakkit uses your Home Wi-Fi Profile to download its GPS tables for quicker GPS acquisition and performance.
You can check your Trakkit App, and you should see the Trakkit check in for the first time. If Trakkit is at one of the “Home” networks just configured, you should see a Green icon.
Once Trakkit travels away from Home, it will start looking for any open Wi-Fi to check in, so you will see a Blue icon indicating an estimated location (non-GPS), or a Red icon indicating a true GPS location.
If you are using GPS Logging Mode, those locations are marked in Black.
Firmware updates (Optional):
When new firmware is released, users will be prompted to connect the device via USB cable to a power source and authorize the update. This update must be performed within range of one of your Home networks. Once the update is under way, both the blue and yellow LEDs will flash an alternating pattern (meaning the firmware update is downloading), then a synchronized flash to indicate the firmware is being applied. Both LEDs will turn off, followed by a steady yellow for 6 seconds once the update is complete.
WARNING: Please do not unplug your Trakkit until firmware upgrade has been completed (all lights off).

Mounting your Trakkit GPS:
Your Trakkit may be equipped with flanges on both sides of the device for convenient mounting wherever you need it. When mounting the device, please note the antenna is located on the top logo side of the device.
On a vehicle, car or truck, one of the best locations for mounting is just in front of the radiator, but behind the facia grill. This allows for the best Wi-Fi performance and keeps Trakkit out of direct heat. You should try different locations before permanent installation.
Note: Different orientations and locations may affect Wi-Fi and GPS performance
