Configure GPS Tracker to access maps on the Internet

Then you need to track your car on the Internet, following the route, speed and location in real time? Or maybe be more relaxed knowing someone from your family? Take a look at this!



Nowadays with so much insecurity and financial difficulty, We do everything to not have damage. But worse than having a stolen car, is to have a family member in trouble in that car, God knows where. With a Tracker you will not be able to avoid this, but at least you can search and send help knowing the exact location of the vehicle.

Obviously this pseudo peace of mind comes at a cost. The Tracker you buy by R$ 180,00 em media, already maintaining a telephony Chip with data packet leaves around R$ 10,00 monthly, using or M2M system (Machine to Machine). And there, worth it or not? Good, Each knows where the calo squeeze, and what deserves to be protected. But as they say “just no use putting the lock after door broken”. I decided to try ;)


There are personal and vehicle Trackers. In my case, I bought a TK103A (Coban), because the idea was to put in the car to monitor certain paths of family. But the problem is that when one acquires a GPS Tracker, Nobody wants to be sending commands and receiving the coordinates in SMS (text). This is boring! You want to see “the thing” on a map, in real time. So come on!

I tried to use the, but for some reason it didn't work. I tested also in (TrackerHome), that is the system proposed in the manual TK103, However, just ran the “1 Server” (IP Had success using the service too Recommend!


Were two configuration steps that are described below: one that is made in the Tracker Site and another in the TK103A/SistemaWeb that receives the coordinates to assemble maps. I'm going to demonstrate the configuration using the TrackerHome and CorvusGPS, It is your discretion choose.

Before you begin, I believe that your Tracker (TK103A Device) is already in full operation, IE, accepting commands via SMS sent by the Administrator's phone, that is you =)

If you have not already done so, take a look at this TK103 manual in Portuguese. Basically you just need to add your mobile number authorizing the Tracker to receive and send messages.

So that everything works, make sure that your Chip has text messaging plan (SMS) and data (Internet) enabled. You can test this by placing your Chip in a cell phone, auditioning for sending SMS and navigation before placing it in the Tracker.

Tracker configuration

Before you begin, consider the following:
– This setting refers to the Tracker TK103A, While it may work on other similar models.
– For demonstration purpose, We will use the default password that is 123456, but you can change it if you want (See the above-mentioned manual).
– When typing, use the uppercase/lowercase letters exactly as shown in each command.

So, come on! From a mobile phone any, send the following SMS command to the number of your Tracker:

– Reset all settings to factory default


– Configure the Tracker for GPRS mode (the default is SMS). This causes messages to be sent to a server on the Internet instead of text messages (SMS)


– Configure the APN for your GPRS.
Access Point Name (APN) allows you to connect to your Internet provider. This setting depends on the Chip you are using. You can consult this list with all the APN:

Below, two examples (choice 1, as your Chip):

This setting applies to who uses the TIM Chip.

Apn123456 tim.Br

This setting applies to those who use the M2M VIVO Chip.

Apn123456 smart.M2M.alive.with.Br

– Configure the APN username and password GPRS connection.


up123456 tim tim


up123456 alive alive

– Configure the IP address and port of the map provider. Here you should choose to use the TrackerHome or CorvusGPS, but not both! Enter only one of the commands “adminip” below.

Enter this command to use the TrackerHome, Server1:

adminip123456 9000

Or, enter this command to use the CorvusGPS:

adminip123456 31200

– Configure the time interval that the Tracker will report the coordinates. In this case, every 30 seconds.

fix030 s***n123456

Maps Site configuration


If you chose to use the TrackerHome, do the following:
1. Visit, and choose Server1, and then click “Register” to create an account (Get the IMEI by sending an SMS to your Tracker with the command “imei123456”).
2. Log in and click the menu “System Settings > Terminal Management” to add your Tracker.

       (Get the IMEI by sending an SMS to your Tracker with the command “imei123456”)

On the official website of CorvusGPS you find the user manual for TK102 and TK103 GPS Tracker.

Both sites offer other interesting settings, including various types of maps.

Listen / Monitor

You can leave the Tracker on the way “Monitor” to listen everything in your surroundings.

Turn on listen

Send by SMS the command below and wait for the answer “Monitor Ok”. After this, make a call to the phone number of the Tracker and it will be possible to hear the environment.


Disable bug


And still, If you are using a real-time system WEB as TrackerHome or CorvusGPS, do:


Motion alert

This feature is interesting, because you are warned if the car get out of place :)

Activate motion alert

Send by SMS the command below and wait for the answer “Moves Ok”. If there is any movement, you will receive an SMS “Moves” with the coordinates.


Disable motion alert


M2M phone chip – Machine to Machine

You can use a common cell Chip with data packet, but don't advise, because it costs a lot, in both the prepaid monthly plan. In TIM, for example, keep a Chip will cost on average R$ 35,00.

If you want to keep a cheap chip in your tracker, M2M is undoubtedly the best option. In this mode (M2M) you will spend on average just R$ 10,00. As the M2M not normally comes with SMS package (Data only), It is good that you do the initial settings of the tracker with a Chip that has SMS, then just change. Tested it and it worked perfectly.

On the open market you find Unlimited M2m For Live Chip Tracker (Monthly Plan) the R$ 10,00.

That's it!

    I would like to use the GPS TRACKER v. program to manage my TK103.
    Sending the Ip of my connection, redirect the door 9000, everything right.
    But when you add the tracker appears the following message “IMEI invalidation”.
    What do I do?
    From already thank you.

      The car is not the ocean when you should be at the point that the GPS locates.
      Actually this is a problem that nobody explains or don't know, probably only the Chinese who created this site know.
      I had the same problem, some videos teaching how to register the GPS but in practice nothing happens gives to understand that tracking site does not work, as well as having a few information and does not have a help tutorial doesn't accuse any GPS action. It's creepy even.

      Do not crawl the application because it fails greatly. make it through the manufacturer's website and much better and have to send the settings correctly before using the site.

    I have the same problem, all turns well but not shown on the map, GPRS OFF, even though the message to activate it is correct (Msg: GPRS123456 and responded GPRS OK!).
    How can I fix it?
