Package content

The cardboard box contains the tracker itself and USB cable, that can be used for manual setup and firmware upgrade.

  • USB cable

Location and tracking

GoSafe G717 is based on chip from ublox™ that supports GPS and GLONASS signals, as well as Assisted GPS technology for faster location acquiring. When no satellites signals are available, it uses Cell ID location method, also known as LBS-positioning. Tracking mode can be flexible configured: by distance, time interval and cornering.

Mobile networks

GoSafe G717 has Quad band GSM module, but depending on the hardware revision it can be either 2G or 3G. The slot for SIM card may also vary from standard to micro size. It is recommended to check these parameters before the purchase.

Power supply

There is the only way to power GoSafe G717 – from a car cigar lighter socket. The voltage range is between 8 and 32V. Device also features a built-in rechargeable backup battery. When fully charged it ensures about 1 hour of device operation (in normal conditions).

It is remarkable that device allows to check engine working status – by monitoring the voltage level; thus it makes possible to collect this data on the tracking server.

Local and remote management

GoSafe G717 tracker can be controlled over GPRS and it supports firmware updating via GPRS (FOTA). Also there is a wide list of SMS commands, on which device always replies back. In particular, Server address and port, APN settings can be applied remotely with SMS.

You can also configure G717 from a PC using proprietary software and standard USB-cable which is included into package.

Eco driving

In the latest hardware / firmware versions GoSafe G717 offers harsh driving monitoring, e.g. harsh braking or harsh cornering. This feature is based on the use of the information from internal accelerometer.

LED and sound indication

There is a multi-colour LED that lights up the butt-end of the device. It shows current GSM/GPRS mode, GPS reception and power status. Besides G717 has built-in buzzer that beeps for GSM connection, GPS fix and in the event of harsh driving behaviour.

    Works well in general, with fast GPS acquisition, although not always accurate. If you’re looking for plug-n-play tracker, I’d recommend to check one of the OBDII trackers as well.

    I couldn’t set it up for distance-based tracking: if the distance value is below 1000 meters – I get error message. I guess it’s kinda firmware bug. Anyway, I overcame that issue with configuring time-based interval (30 sec), plus by cornering (20 degrees) and it worked.
