The art of the GPS measurement

  • When you start the GPS measurement, it is necessary to be connected with 3G time line or Wi-Fi.
  • Please set the measurement interval according to the passing speed and the time required.
    For example・・・

    • Driving(Local road)・・・5 minute
    • Driving(Freeway)・・・3 minute
    • Jogging・・・15 minute
    • Leisure・・・30 minute
  • * In GPS Chaser Plus (the paid version), a flexible setup is possible about GPS measurement. For example, you can set up GPS measurement time in 3 to 120 minutes (at intervals of 1-minutes) and you can set up the send interval of the E-mail which recorded position information between 1 time and 9 times. Moreover, the mode that can do the setting easily according to the usage (drive, stroll, and sightseeing, etc.) is installed. Please try by all means.

  • GPS Chaser Lite can carry out an application while playing music by iPod. When you are playing music and double-click a home button, GPS Chaser Lite displays the controller of iPod and can perform simple operation of a stop, music sending, etc.
    (*It is necessary for “iPod Controls” to become “ON” at “a “setting” -> “General” -> “Home” of iPhone.)
    However, the application ends if you fail in double-clicking the home button. When you fail during GPS measurement, the data which you measured by then is lost. Be careful.

  • * In GPS Chaser Plus( pay version), it was equipped with iPod function. Operation of the music is enabled in an application, and you can more easily listen to music.

  • If 3G circuit and the electric wave situation of Wi-Fi are bad, there is a case where E-mail transmission goes wrong.


* As a future Update of GPS Chaser Plus (the paid version), an E-mail transmitting function is due to be strengthened.

  • The resume function at the time of transmitting failure
  • The function which transmits to a user’s favorite timing
  • A function to display direct Google map in an application without the E-mail transmission of a message.
    Etc…

Please expect!

<Notice>

  • When you have set the “Auto-lock function”, the “Auto-lock function” becomes invalid during this application execution. The “Auto-lock function” becomes effective again after an application end.
  • When you lock with the lock button of the iPhone upper part during GPS measurement, GPS measurement is not performed in the meantime.
    When you delete backlight, please put into the main body of iPhone in a bag or a pocket. Or please put the main body inside out. The power-saving function that used a certain proximity sensor in the vicinity of earphone Jack operates, and you can delete backlight.
  • When you replied to a telephone during a GPS measurement, the application is finished. The GPS information that an application measured so far is cleared, and an application reboots. When you refuse telephone, the application doesn’t end and the measurement is continued.
  • Under the environment where it is hard to receive the electric wave of a GPS satellite, the accuracy of position information may become low.
    For example, shade of the inside of a subway and a building, and a building etc.
  • Since E-mail transmission cannot be carried out at the time of “3G Outside of the circle” and “Wi-Fi un-connecting”, GPS measurement information is thrown away.
  • When GPS information is not able to be acquired, GPS information is not counted to the number of times of a E-mail transmitting interval.
