White Bear Technologies RoamEO GPS Pet Location System User Manual
The RoamEO GPS Pet Location System is designed to be operational
without any set-up or third party services. You can begin using
To begin using your RoamEO system:
Power on the Receiver.
Press the Power button on each Collar you would like to place
RoamEO is now operational. The Basic Tracking Screen will appear on
Upon power up, the Receiver immediately begins searching for
Collar(s) that are enrolled and powered on. This process will only take
a few seconds. Every Collar that has been enrolled will be displayed in
the Collar Status Bar. At the same time it is searching for active
Collar(s), RoamEO also begins the process of acquiring a GPS fix.
Under optimum conditions, it can take up to 45 seconds for RoamEO
to lock on to satellites and acquire an initial GPS fix*. During this
period while RoamEO is acquiring the necessary GPS information to
begin operation, the tracking screen will come up on the LCD.
RoamEO will begin tracking immediately af ter the Receiver and any
one Collar have a GPS lock. RoamEO will display tracking information
for any Collar that has been powered on and has an active GPS lock.
* Note: To obtain a GPS lock, the Receiver needs to know its current position and date so that it can calculate
which satellites should be in view and then searches for only those satellites. When your Receiver is powered
on for the first time, it does not know your position so it immediately begins to search for satellites using data
acquired the last time it was turned on (which was most likely at our factory). Because there is a high degree
of probability you are not at our factory, the Receiver is looking for the wrong satellites. After a short period of
time of not being able to find these satellites, the Receiver then switches automatically to an auto search
mode, causing it to search for any satellite in the sky. Due to advances in GPS technology, this process has
become much quicker now. Once the Receiver locks onto these new satellites, it should become much quick-
er to display your position next time you use RoamEO provided you have not moved more than 100 miles from
the last location it was used.
