What is the “Geo-Fence” and how do I set it up?

What is Geo-Fence?

Geofencing is the use of the Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite network and local radio-frequency identifiers (such as Wi-Fi nodes or Bluetooth beacons) to create virtual boundaries around a location. The geofence is then paired with a 4G Buddy GPS Tracker through “track Map” application that responds to the boundary when the paired device leaves, enters or dwells in/out from the area.
With My Buddy Gard, you are able to set and personalise your own custom notifications (Email, SMS, Call, Push Notifications and more)

You’ll know when your child, pet or vehicle crosses the geofence boundary.
