GpsGate configuration steps 


Application setup

Now we will create the iOS user and link that user with our iPhone/iPad. To do so, follow these steps:

1. Log in to your application

2. Create a new user by clicking on + User button.

3. On Device 1, select iOS

4. Click on Save

5. After clicking on Save, the QR code will show up.

Scan this code using your iPhone

You can find the Scan QR code option under the Settings screen in the iOS tracker app.

These settings can be modified afterward if required.
