How to set up cell tracking

We have 2 apps you can use for cell phone tracking at preset:

  • Btraced – Costs a few dollars, for Android and iPhone
  • Overland – Free, but only available for iPhone

Step 1. Get a USB Battery Pack for your mobile

It’s recommended when flying to use a USB battery pack. Having the phone running all the time with GPS and transmitting data will chew through your battery. Don’t run out and then find yourself without a phone in a paddock!

Step 2. Download an app

On iPhone, search the App Store for Overland. It has an orange icon.

On Android, use the Play Store to search for and install BTraced

Step 3. Follow the instructions for your app
