Quick Start

To start using Traccar Server follow instructions below:

Device Unique Identifier

For most devices you should use IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number as a unique identifier. However, some devices have vendor specific unique identifier, for example some TK103 protocol devices use 12-digit identifier.

If you don't know device identifier you can configure the device to report data first and look for it in the log. Check the troubleshooting guide for more details.

Address and Port

To be able to receive data from GPS devices, your machine must have a public IP address. Some internet providers charge extra for this feature and some don't provide it at all. Your current public IP appears to be 3.238.132.168. Instead of running Traccar on your home machine, we recommend installing it on a VPS.

To select the correct port number, find your device in the list of supported devices. Port column indicates the default port number in Traccar for your device. If you own a cheap Chinese GPS tracker, make sure to check information about clones.
