How to set up Telefonica Geolocation Provider

If Telefonica is your SIM provider and no valid tracking positions are sent from devices, GpsGate can still position the device if Telefonica Geolocation Provider is configured for the specific device. The position is resolved based on the SIM phone number. The device has to be connected to the telecommunication network, otherwise the position retrieving is not possible.

This feature is currently supported for

  • GoSafe Generic
  • Meitrack P99G
  • FifoTrack Generic
