Which GPS Trackers are better for me, 4G, Cat M1 or NB-IoT?
The choice between 4G, Cat M1, or NB-IoT GPS trackers will depend on several factors, including your local network coverage. Generally speaking, 4G network coverage is widespread, but it has relatively high power consumption requirements, which could impact battery life. On the other hand, Cat M1 and NB-IoT networks have lower power consumption and longer battery life, however, not all regions may have full coverage yet.
Cat M1 and NB-IoT have been showing rapid growth and adoption, with significant expansions in coverage in many regions like North America, Europe, and Australia. However, it is advisable to check your local network coverage before choosing your preferred GPS tracker. The right GPS tracker for your needs will depend on your desired applications, power requirements, network coverage, and budget. You can consult with our GPS tracking expert to help you make the best decision.

When the MT700 comes out of deep sleep mode(Mode 3), how long will it stay on before going back into deep sleep mode?
The device takes approximately 3 minutes to wake up and report GPS data to the server. After successfully transmitting this data, there will be a three-minute window period during which the device will wait for any downlink commands from the server.

If the device receives any downlink commands during this time, it will execute those commands as required. However, if no downlink command is received within this three-minute window period, the device will enter a deep sleep mode once again.

This feature ensures that the device conserves power when it is not actively transmitting data or commands, which is particularly useful for devices deployed in areas where power is limited or hard to come by.
If possible to support the External GPS antenna?
It is possible to connect an external GPS antenna to our device, but this will require some hardware modifications, as well as customization of the housing. Once the external antenna is connected, the internal GPS antennas will be disabled, which means you will have to choose between using the internal or external antenna.

Please note that modifying the device’s hardware or housing is not recommended if you are not experienced with this kind of work. It could lead to damage or malfunction of the device, which may void the warranty. If you require an external GPS antenna or have any questions regarding device modifications or customization, please contact our customer support team for assistance.

How much time does it take that MT700 charge from 0 to 100%?
The MT700 device has a charging current of up to 2A, which means it can charge relatively quickly. However, it will still take between 4-5 hours for the device to reach a full charge from empty.

It’s important to note that the actual charging time may vary depending on various factors such as the power source, charging cables, and the battery status of the device. To ensure optimal charging performance, we recommend using the charging cable and wall adapter that came with your MT700 device or other high-quality charging accessories.

If you have any questions or concerns about charging your device or need advice on how to charge it efficiently, please feel free to contact our customer support team for help.
If MT700 is always connected to the charger, does it have any negative effects?
Our MT700 device comes with a charge protection circuit built into the hardware, which ensures that the device is protected from overcharging and related issues. Therefore, it is safe to leave the device connected to the charger even after it has reached a full charge.

This feature provides greater convenience for users who want to keep their devices fully charged and ready for use at all times. You can rest assured that the charge protection circuit will monitor the charging process and prevent any harm to the device or the battery.

If you have any questions or concerns about the charging process or the device’s hardware design, please feel free to contact our customer support team for additional information or assistance.


We want to send the data to our own external server. If so, which protocols are supported?
Our tracking devices are versatile and support TCP/UDP protocols, which enables them to transmit tracking data through a wide range of network configurations.

This allows you to choose the most suitable network protocol for your specific tracking needs, such as TCP for more reliable and accurate data transmission or UDP for faster and more responsive tracking.

We understand the importance of having a reliable and efficient tracking system, which is why we offer these options to ensure that you can customize the tracking process to best suit your unique requirements. If you have any questions or need assistance with setting up your device to work with TCP/UDP, please do not hesitate to reach out to our customer support team.
