• Tinitell Smart Location (GPS Tracking)

    With Tinitell, you are able to locate your kid in a safe and secure way. Just open the Tinitell app (after pairing it with Tinitell) and see the location on the map. Tinitell uses GPS, cell tower triangulation and wifi to provide a good location indoors and outdoors.

    In order to see location updates, you just have to pair Tinitell to the Tinitell app on your smartphone. 

    If you don't see any location updates in the app, and the location pin remains grey after 15 seconds, please check the following: that you have inserted the SIM card correctly, that you have data on Tinitell's SIM card and that you have activated the SIM card with the carrier. Here's a list of tested carriers for Tinitell. If the answer is "yes" to all these questions and you still encounter issues receiving location updates, please email us to hello@tinitell.com and our support team will help out. 

    All set? It’s time to go play outside with your kid! :)

  • Location Accuracy

    Our tests indicate that outdoor accuracy is the same as a normal smartphone with GPS, which is 1 meter accuracy. For indoor accuracy, we are seeing 20 to 40 m where there are wifi points. 

    When there are no wifi points available, we aim at 400 - 500m in rural areas and less than 200m in urban areas.

  • Why do I need data if Tinitell has GPS?

    Tinitell uses GPS, cell tower triangulation and wifi to provide a good location indoors and outdoors. It has a GPS module incorporated and GPS is used as the primary localisation system. 

    As the map and the GPS module are not incorporated in the same device (the map is on your smartphone) Tinitell needs data services to transmit its location to the app. 

    Based on our latest analysis, Tinitell needs on average 50 - 100 MB of data per month. We are constantly improving the localisation algorithm and optimising the frequency in transmitting the data, so as to reduce the data consumption.
