Tracker Info

Select Tracker Info from the menu to display information on setting up a tracker client application.

If you are using the TripLogger Remote for iOS app, you only need this page to ascertain the Device identifier which is a Universally Unique Identifier (UUID). All the other information is for customising another client app. The UUID consists of a string of 32 characters separated by four dashes. This value needs to be copied, ideally by cut-and-paste, into the User identifier field in the app’s settings page.

If you think there is the slightest possibility that your UUID may have been exposed to an unauthorised person, simply click the Generate new tracking ID to immediately revoke the previous UUID and generate a new one. There is absolutely no harm in creating new ones as frequently as you like. Just make sure to update the client application you are using with the new UUID and test that it successfully reports your location to the remote server.

Download TripLogger Settings

You can upload the settings from the TripLogger Remote for iOS app to the website as described in the Upload TripLogger Settings section of My Account.

Clicking on the Download Updated TripLogger Settings button will download those settings, updating them with the latest user UUID that you may have generated. The settings can then be imported into the TripLogger app. This can be easier than trying to copy and paste the UUID from a browser window etc.

If you have never uploaded any settings, this option creates and downloads some default values that you can import into TripLogger. The values used for the default settings are configured by the administrator of your TripServer website. This procedure is intended for use when you are performing the app’s initial configuration.

The downloaded file contains your current UUID, so, if you intend to share the file with someone else, you should generate a new tracking UUID and import that into TripLogger before passing the previous file containing the old UUID to anyone else.
