The advanced settings page lets you tweak settings that will affect the way that your Possio Tracker reacts to events. IMPORTANT: On the sensitivity sliders, 1 = most sensitive and 200 = least sensitive. * See the bottom of the page for a full description of why.
Most of the settings are self explanatory but here is an explanation of each item:
- Auto update when still - how often the device will send location updates to the server when the device is sitting still. The default and recommended minimum for all subscription plans is 24 hours as this setting can cause battery drain if your vehicle is sitting still for prolonged periods.
- Auto update when moving - how often the device will send location updates to the server when the device is on the move.
- Collision sensitivity - how sensitive the device should be to trigger a collision event. If you get a lot of false positives try moving the slider upwards.
- Aggressive driving - how sensitive the device should be to trigger each of the aggressive driving events. If you get a lot of false positives try moving the slider upwards.
- Power supply voltage - the voltage of the battery the device is connected to. We will automatically trigger an event for low power if the device records less than 95% of this amount for more than 10 seconds.
- Save location history - whether we save all the locations the device reports to the server. Required for location history page.
- Drivers journal/journeys - whether we generate journeys automatically for display on the journeys page.
* All sensitivity settings are based on g-force and each unit on the slider represents 0.01g. So when the slider is set at 1 you will need only a g-force of 0.01 to create an event (very sensitive!). On the other end of the scale at 200 you will need to reach 2g before an event is triggered. To put that into perspective a Bugatti Veyron going from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.4 s has around 1.18g force.
