How To: What do the GPS Lights Mean on My Device?

On your GPS tracker, you will find a series of four GPS lights. Each one is color coded to relay information about the functioning of the device. Using the lights, you can get a quick snapshot of the device. The lights can show you if the GPS device is working as intended and, if not, where the error may be occurring.

In this video, we go through what each of the lights mean and what their status should be. Take a moment to find out:
