  3. Connect the DMR800 to your computer and power and open the Scope program provided with the IsatM2M Developer's Toolkit.
  4. Choose File->Connect to connect to the device.
  5. After the program has connected to the device, choose the File->Load Files... menu.
  6. Under Script Designer File:, load the DMR800 Configuration Script. Under the Message Designer File:, load the DMR800 Message Definitions file. Click OK.
  7. Add the device to the tracking portal using the Terminal ID you received above and selecting Skywave M2M as the device type.

Default Configuration Behavior

The devices are set to report its position on five different events:

  1. Power On - When the device is first powered on or reset and acquires a GPS lock, it will report its Powered On position. It will also assume it is currently stationary and enter the Stationary Reporting mode.
  2. Stationary Reporting - When the device is stationary, it is set to report its position every four hours.
  3. Moving Reporting - When the device is moving, it is set to report its position every two hours.
  4. Start Movement - If the device moves more than 100 meters from its stationary position, it will issue a Start position report and enter the Moving Reporting mode.
  5. Stopped Movement - If the device does not move more than 5 kph over a one hour period, it will issue a Stop position report and enter the Stationary Reporting mode.

Changing Reporting Behavior

There are a few changes you can make to the reporting configuration once you have added the DMR800 to the tracking portal. These configuration parameters can be found by clicking on the asset's context menu item and choosing "Send Command":

  1. Movement reporting interval - Change the number of minutes between reports while the device is moving. The default is 120 minutes (2 hours).
  2. Stationary reporting interval - Change the number of minutes between reports while the device is stationary. The default is 240 minutes (4 hours).
  3. Stop duration - The number of minutes the device must remain under the stop speed threshold before it is no longer considered moving. The default is 60 minutes (1 hour).
  4. Stop speed threshold - The speed under which the device is no longer considered moving. This is not set to zero because there can be GPS jitter. The default is 5 kph.
