My GPS theft alarm goes off, but my ship has not been moved
Set the alarm radius to a larger radius (advanced menu, GPS settings)
I receive an SMS message as soon as I switch off the main switch
The E-marine has an internal back-up battery. If you switch off the main switch and thereby disconnect the E-marine from the on-board battery the E-marine will measure the voltage of this battery as 0 Volt and send an SMS message with the text “low battery voltage”.Possible solution: connect the E-marine before the main switch. (Do not forget to use a separate fuse for the E-marine.)
Why is the SIM-card factory default placed in the BDS/BMS-module
Experience has taught us that most failures of a boat security systems are SIM-Card related. We mention here below a few of the possible mishaps, for your perusal: Wrong PIN codes Insufficient calling minutes on the prepaid card Incorrect GPRS-adjustments Number unknown Data traffic impossible Not available for remote support Etc. In order to avoid such malfunctions we have ourselves cont(r)acted a SIM provider, which offers the following advantages: SIM adjustments are always correct There will be no troubles on account of “empty” prepaid cards The network is top quality (KPN = official Dutch Telecom) An annual fixed subscription fee for the customer Always available through our own internet server, as the SIM numbers are immediately entered into our database
