Powering on GPS 2

Note: GPS 1 (AT&T device) guidance is available here

Turning on the device is best done after it has been on the charger for at least 5 to 10 minutes and while it is still connected to the charger, as it may not have enough power to turn on right away when the battery is completely depleted.

Turn the device on by pressing the power button until it vibrates. This may take about 10 seconds or longer. Please note that the device does not automatically power on when it is plugged in. If the device ran out of battery, it will need to be manually powered back on. 

A couple of minutes after starting, the "Device is Charging" message should sound and you should see the message on the screen: "Screen will black out when unplugged. New User? Download AngelSense app on your mobile to get started."         

  • The GPS 2 device has the option to do a restart or to shutdown the device remotely, from your app as well. Powering the device back on would need to be from the actual device itself. See: Restart or Shutdown GPS 2 Device Remotely
  • The power button is marked on the sleeve so that you can keep the device in the sleeve. (If you are looking at the device in the silicone casing with the "A" facing you, the power button is on the right upper side.) 
  • If the device is already on and the power button is pressed it will restart, to prevent your child from turning it off. Pressing the power button will not turn off the device, only restart it.
