Remote Changes to GPS Schedule

GPS schedule can be changed remotely (all products)

Remote Changes – Because things change, sometimes that means a wildlife biologist needs to change a GPS schedule in the field. But that’s no problem. Basically every product that Telemetry Solutions makes can accommodate this need. The GPS schedule, as well as other settings, can be changed remotely using the short-range transceiver. Recently, one client was experiencing a rather low GPS success rate on his first deployed collar. We used the ability to change the schedule as a way to determine whether there was a hardware issue or if the low success rate was due to not giving the GPS enough time to acquire satellites before forcing it to turn off. By having this ability we determined that it was the latter and then devised a new schedule moving forward.
