Tracking via USSD Code

This method of monitoring can come in handy for those in rural areas or areas with poor GPRS connectivity. All you need do is enter some set of commands + (plus) the default system password or the password you set.

Eg. Sending 8888#08# as an SMS to the phone number on the GPS car tracker is going to return the vehicle’s location (correct to 5m) to you.

Other codes and USSD instruction is contained in the device user’s manual.

In Conclusion:

Although, we’d prefer a built-in battery with higher capacity than the installed 250mAH, we must affirm that the tech heads at Nengtong did a good job here. The device worked fine with the built-in battery, and other features we tested were amazing for the price.

We strongly believe that this tutorial will help you install NTO GPS car tracker or any other vehicle tracking device with similar spec and features.
