Understanding why locating your device is not instantaneous

The technology we developed for the Galeo system was intentionally built to enable the device to “sleep” so that Galeo has long battery life. Galeo Pro has a 3-5 year battery life, so there’s no need to charge or hardwire it,  and Galeo Ride has a 2-3 month battery life that is easily recharged with the included 6-foot cable.

 

How it Works:

When the device is sleeping, it uses barely any battery power to lay in wait of an event, either sensing motion or receiving a location request. When it wakes, it checks to see if anyone is searching for it.  If there is no request, it goes back to sleep. If there is a request, it searches for its GPS location and then transmits the data to the app via cellular network

 

Wake-up Cycles

Galeo Ride – every 85 seconds

Galeo Pro – every 11 minutes

So, depending on where the device is in its wake-up cycle, the location could be sent to your app fairly quickly, or it might take a little time

Scenario #1:

9:30 Galeo Pro wakes up, checks for a request, goes back to sleep

9:32 You request the location in the app

9:41 Galeo Pro wakes up, checks for a request, sends its location, goes back to sleep

Total wait time = 9 minutes

Scenario #2:

1:00 Galeo Pro wakes up, checks for a request, goes back to sleep

1:10 You request the location in the app

1:11 Galeo Pro wakes up, checks for a request, sends its location, goes back to sleep

Total wait time = 1 minute
