    If you are in a rural area then chances are that you don't have a good network connection. The device runs on the 3G networks of ATT and T-Mobile networks. If you don't have strong 3G signals from these providers then you may need to attach the magnetic fleet tracking device to the vehicle and drive around a bit until the device can pick up a good network connection. If the device still doesn't update after driving around please reach out to us.
