guys, its fun to track our friends, especially it is useful during travel and in new location, sometime friends are very near to us but we’re not able to point them exact location, if you used this means, you wont ask their location anymore..
Follow the steps and ask doubt if you have.
How to Track ?
Requirement : Android Mobile or IOS mobile and 2 free apps, yeah thats it nothing other.
If you planned to track 3 friends each other, that is all 3 know other location in realtime, if he is moving means, speed in km/h, battery percentage, altitude.
All 3 friends have to install these 2 Android app
First app “Traccar Client”
Second app “GPS Monitor”
Step 1 :
Install both app in all friends mobile (totally you’re 3 friends means, install both apps in 3 mobiles).
Step 2 :
Step 3 :
Visit this page
they have 3 demo servers, you can choose any one, i choosed demo2
Second demo server
Device configuration parameters for the server:
Now open the domain name in browser, as i choosed the second demo server, it’s address is http://demo2.tracc...rg
Now enter your email address and enter any password and click “Register”.
it move to next map page once registered, now close the browser, as you have registered account.
Step 5 :
Open “Traccar Client” app.
Device Identifier – xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Its mostly your mobile IMEI number, dont edit, just copy the number, we have to paste this in another app “GPS Monitor”
Server address : demo2.traccar.org
As we’re going to use demo2 server and registered there, so enter demo2 server address.
Server Port : 5055
As Android mobile use 5055 port, leave it as default.
Frequency : 20
This means, how much interval or time between to track the device, if it is set as 20 means, it send your location every 20 seconds, that is 3 times per minute, 4320 times per day, that result in increase data usage, better high value reduce data consumption.
Location Provider : GPS Provider
Just choose GPS provider as default.
Step 6 :
Click “Start” in Traccar client.
Step 7 :
Open “GPS Monitor” app
Enter “demo2.traccar.org” in hostname or ip address
Enter your username and password you registerd in demo2 server and login, please use that tick box to remember, so next time you no need to enter login details again.
now it logged in and show one map, just click anyhere in map, it show 3 options (Add devices, settings, Logout) – click “Add devices”, so it ask name and device id, give name as your name and then paste the device id you copied from step 5.
thats it, now one device (your device) is able to track.
now copy the device id of your other 2 friends and name them (their name) in “Add device”, so you’re able to track them in realtime with speed too.
other friends have to login with same username/password in GPS monitor, so they view the all 3 devices added before.
For tracking location or place of person we need the GPS co-ordinate values (latitude and longitude) of that particular location, as our mobile have inbuilt GPS sensor that give the co-ordinate values to our mobile locally, thats why sygic offline map show speed offline.
now if we’re able to send this GPS co-ordinate values (latitude and longitude) to other person by whatsapp means, they know our location, but we need to standstill in that particular location if we moved means, we have to send new place GPS co-ordinate values (latitude and longitude) , so this is tedious process, if this was done automatically and in realtime sharing of GPS co-ordinate values (latitude and longitude) means ..? yeah other track us in realtime and exact location
Now how this work …???
Our mobile and our friends mobile send GPS co-ordinate values (latitude and longitude) to demo2 server using “Traccar client app”
Whoever have “GPS Monitor” app with demo2 server login details of our account can track all the devices added in that demo2 server by us, say we add 3 friends means, all 3 friends track each other.
Tracking only (useful for Mom/dad)
truth is “GPS Monitor” app is just show the devices added in “devices”, so we can install just GPS monitor in mobile of dad/mom so they can track us, they no need to switch on GPS or traccar cleint, just a “GPS Monitor” app is enough
