vehicle location will be sent to the specific recipient. 

 

 

Auto mode

: To enable the auto mode, by pressing the F2 key on the 

device and wait for the F2 LED being on, the device will enter the auto 

mode.  The recipient is the last recipient of the manual mode; the interval 

is defined in the 

Auto Trace Rate

 (Figure 7)

. To disable the Auto Mode, by 

pressing the F2 key again and wait for the F2 LED being off, the device 

will return to the Manual Mode. 

2.4. Navigation

The device can output GPS data thru the RS232 port.  Any notebook, PC, or palm 

device with a map application, as long as the map application is able to interpret 

the GPS data, the whole system becomes a real-time navigation system. 

 

To enable this feature, by pressing 

F1

 key and wait for the 

F1

 LED being turn on, 

the device is in navigation mode.   To disable this feature, by pressing the
