Q.What is a
A. geofence is a geographical area with a radius that is defined
by the user. Carminder allows you to create 10 invisible fences
each of variable size anywhere in the world. As soon as your
vehicle enters the defined area, you are notified via SMS.
Examples include being notified if your vehicle enters a suburb
or city, worksite etc. Or perhaps if your vehicle goes to
a location where it is not authorized to be, such as most
4WD hire company which prohibits vehicles going on the beach

be set to notify the owner when their vehicle leaves a given
All geofences are easily administered via PC or mobile phone.
Each geofence has it’s own label that you set.
I find the latitude and longitude co-ordinates to create geofences?
A.There are several ways, you can use internet web sites such
as multimap.com, UBD CDROM, Magellan MapSend. Alternatively
if your vehicle in the area which you want to create a geofence
then you can use the ‘HERE’ parameter.
Q.What happens once a geofence is
A.If your vehicle travels into geofences 1-9 then you will
be notified via a text message what fence was breached. That
particular fence will then be disabled. To re-enable the geofence
you can use the command GEOON 3, where 3 is the fence that
was previously entered and disabled. To re-enable all geofences
you can use the command GEOALLON.
