How does it work

This device is like an old mobile phone

Hear all sounds from the mobile mic.

The most important thing about this device is the sim card

So you can get location from anywhere in the world where the 2g mobile network is available.

In India, airtel & Vodafone
Has 4g, 3g & 2g network service & jio has only 4g service so jio is not working on this device but Airtel & Vodafone working fine.

Before inserting the sim card you have to remove all sim locks, PUK lock from your sim card
You need a minimum balance for sending SMS & receiving a call
otherwise, it will not work.

No need any other subscription fee for this tracker but you need a basic pack for sending SMS & making calls from the tracker sim.

After sim card installation the red LED of the tracker will glow for a short time.

Those are very common problems with this tracker.

  • Make sure your area has 2G network coverage.
  • Make sure your sim service operator has 2G network services.
  • Check your Sim card has not had any lock like a PUK lock or any other.
  • Sometimes the sim card does not get the contact of the sim connector point. If you are using a micro or a nano sim card with an adapter ( tracker does not support nano or micro so you have to use an adapter for those types of sim cards) please use a thin tape on the sim split area. use a small amount of paper on the sim card to create pressure on the sim contact point. it may solve the connection problem.

  1. Is not available to register my GF-07.
    I have the following message every time that I am sending the 102 sms for registration.
    App:Registering your tracker, please try this command again later!

    1. Same problem i m facing. how to fix this problem. please suggest Registering your tracker, please try this command again later!

  2. Hello, I bought GF-07 and bind it with the wrong sim card, how do I reverse or change to another sim card. please help. thanks in advance

    1. Hi,
      I think that just take out the wrong card and insert a new one and then pair the phone from which you will always give commands.
      This new card must be registered and activated with the operator
      You will get a new card phone number and must be top up because you get SMS and it costs money .

  3. Forget this !
    Another Asian bogus money scam.
    When are these companies ever ever going to learn to hire an ENGLISH SPEAKING person to translate their instructions into understandable ENGLISH!!

    1. In addition to which, it’s NOT a GPS device; it doesn’t use GPS (or GLONASS or similar) for location so it’s only accurate to about 0.5 km.

  4. My says also INVALID ADDRESS. The website shows my position in HongKong, while I sit here in Europe.
    With 777 i get a link to a web page with only two keys and a location, which is about 210 km from my location.

    What should I do with this kind of ***

    1. Same goes for the piece of Sh*t that I brought from , It just shows a blank screen with some longitude and latitude lines and when i paste that manually on the Google Maps the location of the MINI GPS tracker shows 160 km away whereas its kept beside me like a pain in the Backside. @ technoreview85 i would really appreciate if you have any solution to this cause the sellers have just one reply ” Sir We are resetting the server , Please try after some time…….. and it goes on for ever …….

  5. I can’t get this GPS to work I can’t find the SIM card number in the card number that I do use it still doesn’t work

    1. Hi Ramon.
      I bought this shit a few days ago
      also sim card GiffGaff on eBay
      Sim card must be activated, it is necessary to log in to the sim card publisher’s website
      You have to register and top up if that’s what you pay and go
      or choose a monthly subscription.
      Only after paying for the top up card is it activated.
      You will then receive an email with the card’s phone number.
      This sim is calling up and texting you and that costs money and therefore has to top up.
      Such a trick.
      I was able to run.
      First location request and you send text 777 to the card number.
      In my case, the location (on google maps) was 5 min. driving a car from where I was.
      So far, the accuracy has blown me away

  6. The red light dont switch off. Its on constantly.. Whats the problem? I have 2 and its the same problem with both..

  7. When insert the sim card the red light comes on and stays on but it doesn’t answer back and pair

  8. I need the full list of commands to configure new apn , port, usr ,pass . etc. Data transmit will be to new platform(my mobile app) Thanks

  9. where is the tracker kept in the car? does the battery need to be recharged? if a vehicle that is tracked with this device is stolen and need to be demobilized after monitoring, is this possible with this device?

  10. This is absolutely rubbish. It is does not have GPS.
    The position of this tracker is calculated using triangulation (calculating the distance between mobile towers).
    It is not precise. The location it shows is about 700m away from the actual location.
    The only positive about this item is that it is cheap. Cheap but useless.

  11. Quand j’envoie 777 on me donne une adresse d’un site introuvable yyyyyyyyy 777yyyyy. Et pourtant le 777 a marché 2 ou 3 fois. Quelle est la solution

  12. Hi
    I got a new tracker cuz the old ones battery got swollen. Now i cant seem to use the old sim in the new device. When i insert sim the red light is on permanently inside and if i try calling the sim it says its off. . What do i do.

  13. it says Dw the addr invalid ,followed by a link if clicked it opens always one lat and long which is not the location. can any help?

  14. Kindly assist my GF-07 when i insert the sim card light switched On does not go off stays On

    1. estro puede ser debido a que la tarjeta SIM tiene protección por PIN, debes deshabilitarla colocando la SIM en un telefono

  15. It is kind of strange I have register master number but any one calling my sim that is in the device it attends the call.. I am expecting it will only receive calls from master number

  16. Sim kart takılı, Zero gps izleme prgramınızda “Bağlantı Off line” diyor
    Tekrardan OnLine olması için ne yapmam gerekiyor. Şimdiden teşekkür ederim.

  17. I have binded successfully , and the call back are happening but am not getting any location link even after sending 777 , by the i just tried test it so device is kept close it me only.

  18. I can’t find the IMEI number to register the SIM card I tried calling to get it set up and the person said might be getting IMEI number for the tracker so I can get the SIM card set up I can’t find IMEI number any tracker or anything about it anywhere on accident

  19. Det kommer ingen tilbakemelding når jeg sender 777
    I Norge er det 2G osv så det burde ikke være problemet.
    GF-07 ringer stadig tilbake men dette er vel på grunn av lyd i rommet der den befinner seg eller er det mulig å slå av.
    Hva kan jeg gjøre ???

  20. Hi. When I send text 777 to GF-07 I get a reply in Chinese which does not have any coordinates. Please tell me how to change this to English

    1. hi I have same problem……when i send 777, massege to me only chines, no gps,have you fixed it yet?

  21. This device is very intermittent. It is really a piece of trash. 777 (location) does not work. I live in the USA and it has never shown any location, just an error message in Chinese. Don’t waste your time.

  22. i send 000 to my device but it doesnt work and the red light indicator doesnt blink at all it stays on a red light but not blinking

  23. Please, how do I restore the factory settings? When I send a message * # * # * # to the SIM, nothing happens

  24. Like others said, if I send SMS from other phone, the device give the reply with the location as if this other phone is the host. How can this be fixed? Meaning, how to block all the phones of the world except for the host?

  25. I have purchased a gf-07 mini tracker and sent a text to 777 but received a map of China but live in UK and can’t find anywhere to change it over. I was sent a link to google maps as well but wherever I go still shows my home address.

  26. I got this device. I can bind the device but i can’t even track my location. When i sent 777 it did not show anything. When I type 102 , it don’t give me username and password. Just the device website and id number of the device.

    1. Rohan – yes when I typed 102 it asked fir user name and password but as I haven’t been advised this information either. Very frustrating.

  27. Hi
    My device is receiveing call, but not replying msg sometime device calling back , no msg for binding I tried all codes but no msg from device

  28. dears,
