  • Connect the Red wire (PW+) to the 2 Amp fuse that is connected to the +ve end of the vehicle power source (battery).
  • Connect the Black wire (GND) to the +ve end of the vehicle battery
  • Connect the Orange wire to the vehicle’s ACC switch.

Tip: Keeping the GPS device horizontal ensures proper GPS signal reception.

Steps: Configuring a Concox GT06 device

Once installation is complete, the data SIM card must be inserted into the device and connected to a power source. Next, you will configure your GPS device by following these steps: Before you begin, write down your device’s IMEI number and the GSM SIM card’s serial number.

* IMEI number is usually printed on the bottom of the GPS device or on the device case. The fleet management software requires an IMEI number to register the GPS tracking device.

Let’s take a look at what is involved in configuring a GT06 device.

1. Verify if the GT06 GPS device is functioning properly

The first step in configuring a GT06 GPS device is verifying it is functioning properly.

To begin using the device, you must first turn it on. The power LED will illuminate, and the device will search for a GPS signal.

The GSM and GPS (blue) LEDs will flash on and off as the device searches for a signal. Once they both stay lit steadily, it indicates that your phone’s connection has been established.

2. APN, Timezone and DNS: Port settings on GT06

Once the GPS device functionality has been verified, it can be integrated with the AVLView cloud platform. GT06 GPS tracker can be easily integrated by sending simple short message service (SMS) commands to cloud servers.

Below are the SMS commands to configure APN, DNS and port number, update interval and device time zone in GT06 devices.


An Access Point Name (APN) is a gateway between a telecom carrier and another computer network. A GPS device making a data connection must be configured with an APN to present to the carrier.

Send the following command to set APN:

Response from device “OK”

Set DNS and Port

We need to tell the GT06 device where we want it to send data. Our cloud server’s DNS and port are and 6639, respectively, so you can send this text message as a command:

To set DNS and port details: 


Response from device “OK”

Update interval:

The update interval determines how frequently the device transfers data to servers. In this case, we prefer a 20-second data update frequency. You may opt for higher frequencies if you want to save on SIM data.

To set update interval:



Following is the command to set GPS devices to Greenwich Mean Time:

GMT, E,0,0#

Important Notes:

  • Please make sure that the device is powered ON throughout the configuration process.
  • The device is supposed to respond with a confirmation text message for each command you send. So please make sure your SIM has active data service.

Other useful commands

Check device status (eg: GPS and GPRS status)


Sample response from the device:

“Battery:3.41V,Battery too low! Warning; GPRS:Link Up; GSM Signal Level:Strong; GPS:Successful positioning, SVS Used in fix:10(11), GPS Signal Level:32,31,32,31,28,29,29,36,32,33; ACC:OFF; Defense:OFF”

Note: Device with an active GSM and GPS signal would show “GSM Signal Level:Strong; GPS:Successful positioning,”

Resetting a device

If the device fails to communicate properly, you may do a device reset by sending the below SMS command.


Upon receiving the above command, the device will get reset in 20 seconds.

3. Check if the device is visible on AVLView

Please contact our support team if you still need to create an AVLView account.

After you have set the APN, Port details and other settings on your device, log in to the platform with your login credentials and check if it is communicating with our portal.

You may check the device communication by choosing the respective client and device from the partner portal.

Important note: Make sure that the IMEI no’s & mobile no’s you updated against the vehicles are correct.

Device data


Configuration process of the GT06 device is very easy if you follow the correct procedure and commands.

Taking some extra time to verify if the devices are functioning properly can help you eliminate any hindrance in tracking your fleets and assets.

Using Concox GT06 devices can assist you in managing your fleets in the easiest possible manner.
