Preserving battery life of GPS 2

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

To preserve battery life:

  • Name places to assure power saving is activated
  • Assure place borders are large enough, e.g. to include all of school's buildings
  • Use Runner Mode and 1-Way Voice (Listen-In) and 2-Way Voice (AngelCall) moderately
  • Connect GPS 2 to Wi-Fi 
  • Leave the device charging until you are ready to use it
Some more About the battery:
  • The battery can last up to 24 hours with normal use after a full charge (about 2 hours). 
  • The battery life can be impacted by poor cellular reception, being in unnamed locations, and use of Runner Mode and 1-Way and 2-Way Voice. 
Note: Keeping the app open as well as receiving notifications do not affect the battery usage of the device.

From the AngelSense Blog:

Why Your Child with Autism Needs a BIGGER GPS Device 

Proactive alerts to routine deviations and providing consistent location updates in poor GPS and cellular conditions are indispensable features. Supporting these capabilities require enough power to sustain the device and can only be achieved with larger battery size and an equally accommodating device.
