Blip Personal is tightly integrated with this software platform.

Activation process

The software platform supports automatic device activation by applying APN settings, server address and port, as well as recommended tracking mode though the SMS channel. Normally you don’t need to configure anything manually. Just install the SIM card, switch the device ON and make sure it is located in the place with good GPS signal reception.

When you activate a device, the following SMS commands are sent from server to device:

SMS command from
Server to Device
SMS reply from
Device to Server
ITV123456 30 OK! Time period settings
 apn123456 <apn_name> <apnUser> <apnPass>  APN ok  Set up APN name
timezone123456 0 OK Time zone settings
 adminip123456 47735  adminip ok! Set up server address and port

Some parameters will depend on your cellular network operator:

  • <apn_name> – APN name
  • <apn_login> – APN login
  • <apn_pass> – APN password

As soon as these commands are executed the GPS tracker will connect to the server, and the rest of configuration process will be done via GPRS channel.

Important notice:

  • Do not set any password on the device (by default: “123456”)
  • Do not set any master number prior to the device activation
  • Do not set the Time zone, it must be UTC+0h as per default
  • Do not set any pin-code to your SIM card

If you experience problems with automatic device activation, you can send the commands manually, and your device will become activated on the platform.
