Is this chinese GSM GPS usb car charger tracker supported, "easyway"

yellow512bbi6 years ago

I came across this on ebay and it would be perfect for rolling out to autos since you simply plug it in the charger. It takes a sim card and i was wondering if it is supported by Traccar?

Chances are good that it's already supported, but I need protocol documentation to check.

Hi,
it seems like the only info there is on this, is what i had posted from the ebay listing. i didn't know how to set the dns server name on the device?

it says that we can dial the sim and it will text a message back with a link to the location on a google map but i want it to send the data to my traccar install not a text message?

any thoughts would be appreciated.

thanks

It should be possible if device supports GPRS communication, but I don't know any details on how to set up this particular device.

sidolin6 years ago

It should be type modelname GF-11
Got one too. Any news about protocol?

Anton Tananaev6 years ago

If you know how to configure device, I would recommend to try one of these ports:

Hi,
I just got one of those and already regret it ? The instructions are scarce (just what it is posted above) , and it doesn't say what is the device IMEI, how to set the IP of the server the device should connect to, and what should be entered to login at http://www.08gps.com/login.php, which I was supposed to use to track the device (according to some info I could dig in some forum).

I don't even know where to start...

Anyone had any luck with these?

Thanks
Marco

Request documentation from the seller. Alternatively you can try to find people who use same device and ask how they configured their devices.

Marcovc6 years ago

Thanks Anton,
I cannot even find the manufacturer. The model name GF-11 also shows no results on Google. I guess I should just forget about it...
Thanks anyway!

Where did you buy it? Request documentation from there.

If it's not possible, your best bet would be to find matching device by a photo and try to get any documentation for it.

777 command not work gf08 its invalid command what to do this?

This device works with SMS only, no GPRS. BTW, it's not a GPS but an LBS device.

As far as Traccar is concerned it's essentially a paperweight like many pseudo-GPS devices that don't give a mean to set the IP and port.

The only way round I could think of is to set up a [SIM800 GSM receiver -> Arduino -> Ethernet] module to receive the SMS from the device and send a proper OsmAnd message to Traccar. But unless you already have the necessary modules and are prepared to program the Arduino, it's not economically realistic.

Traccar supports LBS-only devices, but it can't handle SMS location reports at the moment.

Hi Anton,

Yeap, LBS or GPS make no difference (short of accuracy of localization), I only wanted to warn potential buyers of the marketing lie concerning this product (and unfortunately many others...).

BTW, I'm new to your forum. Great piece of software. Many thanks.
