If the installation has been done correctly, the device is not connected to the battery, but to the electrical system, so the device will only be charged when the motorcycle is on. This means that it will never be charged directly from the battery, so it will not deplete in any case.

Even so, we recommend that you start your motorcycle at least once every two weeks and turn around, to charge the battery and to charge the device.

What does the percentage of battery inside the app indicate?
This is the battery level at which the Mapit is located, not the motorcycle’s battery. Its optimum performance is between 20 and 100%.
The Mapit’s battery discharges very fast. What could be happening?
- The device is not properly installed and is not charged when the motorcycle is running.
- The motorcycle has been in the sun for a long time and the Mapit’s battery has suffered. This may occur more frequently during the summer months.
- My journeys last less than 15 ’or 20’, and the Mapit receives a low load level.
- Using the motorcycle less than 2.5 / 3 hours per week may cause you to consume more charge than you input.
Do I always need to be connected to the application from the same device?
No. You can be connected from any device you want and from wherever you want. Of course, you will always need to do it with the same username and password.
Can I have my session logged in on more than one device (Tablet, PC or Smartphone) at the same time?
Yes, you can have your account open from several devices, but remember, always with the same username and password. That way, once you associate a device to your email account, you can only access you and those people to whom you want to provide your personal user data and password.
Do I have to close the App if I do not want to use GPS?
No, it is not advisable to open and close the App often since firstly, smartphones already optimally manage open applications in the background, opening and closing an app consumes many more battery and RAM resources. Doing this with Mapit may take several minutes to restore and may affect your communication with the device. If you do not want to receive notifications for a certain period of time, you can deactivate that option from the application settings. Similarly, from the settings option you can stop GPS tracking whenever you want.

Of course, it is equally simple the installation and the Mapit battery will last even longer in a car.

Once installed all the devices you want in your vehicles, you will only have to register all with the same user, your email address. This way you can see the location of everyone on the same map. If you click on each of them, the specific information of each locator will appear.
What happens if I sell my motorcycle?
In a resale case, you must follow the steps below:
- The buyer must register in the Mapit app through the app or website itself and enter their payment method (Card) to register their user.
- The buyer or seller should contact Mapit through the email firstname.lastname@example.org attaching the change of ownership document to unlink their old user from the device.

How often is the position updated?
A GPS position is sent approximately every minute while the vehicle is in motion. When the vehicle stops you can see the last known position on the map, and it will warn you in case the vehicle starts moving again.
I just activated my Mapit Connect, but I do not get any position indicator on the map, why?
You will not be able to see the situation on the map until you have been able to receive a GPS signal correctly at least once. Please, place your vehicle in an open space and ride around 15-20 minutes, until you receive a position.
I do not receive any position on the map, what happens?
If you already have your Mapit Connect installed in your vehicle and you have been driving for a while, even so, you do not receive any position, please check out:
- That you are in an outside area
- That your area has coverage.
What approximate precision does the GPS have?
The accuracy of Mapit is given by the GPS system. In the city, depending where you are and also the GPS signal between the buildings, is possible that the location point moves a few metres.
Motion alerts are not working for me. What should I do?
It can be due to several factors. First, and depending on your phone model, it may be due to some fault in the application settings. Check out that:
- The phone is not in the ‘Energy saving’ or ‘energy optimization’ mode enabled. The application must be working in the background and should not be affected by the superposition of other functionalities or applications.
- You have the notifications activated (both in the settings of the application and those of the phone).
- If none of these options solve your problem, contact us from the contact section of the website and we will help you solve it.
My Mapit indicates that it is in a wrong place, why is it?
If the location you receive does not correspond accurately with the real one, it may be because your vehicle is parked in a garage or interior area without coverage.
If the motorcycle is outside; it may be because the area where it is located does not receive a good GPS signal. In either case, it is possible that the location is inaccurate, but it will be solved when you return to an area with good coverage.
