kuko k, i’l try to explain
Quest01: What is the url to login with the old gps-trace 1.0 credential to new gps-trace.com?
We use a common authorization form for accounts that have been migrated to the new platform. If you have a troubles please contact us to [email@example.com](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org).
Also, we plan to open auth by Google and Facebook after some tests.
Quest02: Old gps-trace 1.0 saved data for last 30 days. New gps-trace 3.0 saved data only for 10 days. Why?
We store 10 days of raw messages. Trips and events stored 30 days as before. But it’s calculated data and works a really fast. Trips are built literally instantly.
Quest03: Old gps-trace 1.0 exported my data in 5 different data format (plt, txt. kml. vnl, vlb) so I could create my own archieve.
Currently, less than 0.2% of users use exports. Some export mechanism we will add a bit later.
I’m one (five different account, better) of this 0,2% that use export since 2011!
Don’t stop orange, before you’ll add export to new platform, please!
Quest04: Something about “Share link”. Old gps-trace 1.0 (and 2.0) created a share link to access my position via web browser very fast. New gps-trace 3.0 limit this function to next 7 days only. So I had to recreate the link every 7 days… Why? (yes, you will say me: the old cannot delete the link. If so, it will be more usefull if you add new function to kill the link I created)
Cause the most of users don’t use unlimited share links. Can you provide some usecase?
I use “Share link” to verify very very fast where is my device using browser, without access to app or site (need more time).
I put the link in my browser on the phone, then with only one click I see my device on map.
If you permit only limited time link, I have to generate and update link into browser very 7 days… what beep!!!
Quest05: Notifications: I don’t understand how to create a notification. With gps-trace 1.0 it was very simply and usefull create notification to my mail (or different mail) address.
Now you do not need to create notifications. You can simply enable or disable them.
Yes, we turned off sending by email. But significantly improve the work with them in the application. And we continue to refactor this. Plus we made it possible to send push notifications to your phone.
Read more in our Quick Guide
Notification to mail are very userfull. Push notifications on app (on phone) will limit you to only one device notification!
Quest06: track analysis: on gps-trace 1.0 track could be coloured by speed for example for a best analisys. On gps-trace 3.0 I don’t understand how to colour my track.
Yes, it’s true. We will return to this later.
Ok for later.
Quest08: gps-trace 1.0 can send command to tracker via web platform. gps-trace 2.0 and 3.0 lost this very usefull function. Why?
We are now in the process of implementing the commands.
PS I’m very happy you pinned my post on your comunication (https://forum.gps-trace.com/d/21-orange-the-end-is-comming-december-2019). Thanks!
