MT710 USB config commands list

For a complete list of detailed commands for the MT710 , please click here to check.

This list includes all of the available commands you can use to configure and control your device, allowing you to fully customize your tracking experience to your specific needs.


I can’t find the com port number on sscom tool, what happens?
Ensure that the ‘GPS Driver’ is installed on your PC. If it is installed, check whether you have connected the tracker with the USB Config cable.
When I click the command on sscom and why does it reply “804 FS”?
If you send the command ‘ETS’ and receive the reply ‘ETS OK’, but on clicking another command, you receive an ‘FS’ error, please follow these steps:

1. Verify whether the command format is correct, remove any blanks or spaces and retry sending the command.

2. Remove the “AddCrLf” option, as illustrated in the following image, and then retry sending the command.

3. If still fail please contact us at info@mictrack.com
Why do I get the alert “USB Device not recognized”?
If you receive an alert message when you connect the USB cable to the PC, ensure that you are using the MT710 Config cable, which is a customized cable, not a standard cable. Please note that the MT710 only works with the Config cable.
The USB Config cable is connected and tries to send the command but no response.
Please note that, once connected to the cable, ensure that for each time, you must first click on “Start” and wait for a response of “ETS OK”. If there is no response to “ETS OK”, click “Start” again. You can then click on other commands, followed by the “Save and Exit” command to save the settings after the device has rebooted.

For example, if you need to change just the APN, the commands are as follows:
Start (ETS OK)
APN (803 OK)
Save and Exit (QTS OK)

If you need to change just the IP and port, the commands are as follows:
Start (ETS OK)
IP/Port (804 OK)
Save and Exit (QTS OK)
The device can not get the network and always show the error “CSQ 99“?
Please acknowledge that the SIM Card APN plays an essential role in network access. If the APN is incorrect or has not been set up, then the tracker will not connect to the network. Therefore, please verify that the APN is correct and set it up accordingly via the sscom tool.

If you have confirmed that the APN is correct, ensure that your SIM card supports CAT M1, NB-IoT, or both. Then lock the device accordingly to CAT M1 or NB-IoT, and reboot the tracker. If it still fails to connect, please contact us for further assistance.
The device shows sim card error how to fix it?
If the SIM card error persists, it may be possible that the SIM card has been installed incorrectly. Therefore, first remove the SIM card and then reinsert it again, taking care to ensure that the direction of the SIM card is correct and that the chip is facing down and the notch on the SIM card is facing outwards.
How do I query the current setting?
To check the device settings, you can utilize either of the following two methods:
Send an SMS command to the device: *RCONF#1##
Send a USB command to the device: RCONF,1
