Over Speeding

This feature is used to prevent the driver from exceeding fixed speed and inspects the driver if needed. When vehicle speed exceeds maximum configured speed value the scenario is activated, and a record is generated. Scenario is activated until speed value decreases below the set parameter value.


This function can only be triggered by the configured button. When the alarm is triggered, an event with IO ID 236 is generated. Eventually an SMS will be sent informing user about the event. A call possibility is also available if desired number is selected near Call to parameter. In addition, users are allowed to configure event priority. Two options are available - Call where voice call comes first and Record where data transmission to servers will be prioritized over a voice call.


This feature gets current accelerometer data and calculates angle between offset positions. Currently there are two positions: horizontal (when the device is in horizontal position and LEDs are on top of the case) and vertical (when the device is in a vertical position and USB connector is facing down). Scanning is performed each second. When calculated angle exceeds configured threshold for configured timeout, then an event with IO ID 242 is generated. SMS event and/or call takes place, if it is configured.

Audio Control

This feature allows users to customize GH5200 volume based on their needs. 3 volume control settings are available - Indication volume, Normal Speaker Volume, Loud Speaker Volume.

Event Notification

The purpose of this function is to notify any alarm events by sending an SMS message to up to 5 receivers and to call up to 5 pre-defined numbers.
These high priority events can be configured:

  • Alarm;
  • ManDown;
  • Movement Event.

At least one of the following has to be selected for this feature to work - Alarm, ManDown or Movement Event. In addition, at least one SMS Number or one Call Number has to be configured.

Users are allowed to configure SMS sending method. Two options are available - GPRS or SMS option which sends an SMS when GPRS fails and GPRS and SMS option which sends an SMS when GPRS fails or device sends records to the server.

Call Answer Timeout is used for indicating successful call - if voice call was answered but configured time-out has not been reached, the voice call is considered unsuccessful and if only one number is configured, the device repeats the call as many times as the value configured in Call Repeat field. However, if the call is not successful and there are other predefined numbers selected, the device continues to call other configured numbers instead of repeating voice calls to the same number.

NOTE! Some operators provide voice information when the recipient is unreachable or call is not accepted. Such voice information may last longer than the configured time. In that case, the call will be considered as accepted.

Movement Event

Movement Event scenario makes an eventual high priority record (and sends an optional SMS) when the device is stationary or in motion (depending on configured "Mode") for set Timeout.
Timeout is a configured amount of time (in seconds) after which an eventual high priority record is generated.
Movement Event mode generates a record after the start of movement whereas No Movement Event generates a record after the stop of movement.

NOTE! In case if No Movement Event is selected as Mode, then Pre Alarm Timeout is counted additionally.

Additional Features

User ID feature allows users to send custom number as AVL ID 854 parameter.
