WeHunt GPS needs two things in order to work correctly: Contact with GPS satellites and a connection to the GSM network. The unit is designed for use in woodland and fields and should be fastened in place so that it has an unobstructed view of the sky. It will struggle to get a GPS signal indoors and around tall buildings, for example. The GPS cannot send its locations to the app if the GSM coverage is not good enough.

We recommend setting the unit for the entire hunt time whenever it is in use - WeHunt GPS has a built-in motion sensor and switches to hibernation mode to save battery power whenever it is not moving. To activate the unit, simply shake it a little. When the unit is in hunt mode, you will automatically receive a push notification telling you that the unit has a weak GPS or GSM signal, or its battery level is beginning to get low.

The unit has two LED lights: one blue one and one green one. The blue light will flash every three seconds. The green light will flash twice every three seconds. If the blue light is flashing slowly, the GPS is searching for GPS signal; if the green light is flashing slowly, the unit is looking for GSM signal.

WeHunt GPS transmits GPRS/GSM (2G), so not 3G or 4G. Strong 3G or 4G signal on your mobile phone is no guarantee of good GSM coverage. WeHunt GPS is fitted with a SIM card that chooses the GSM network with the best signal strength in the area, irrespective of the operator.
