how can you get a telephone number or a way to for the unit to talk
If you can not do that can you tell me what obd2 device is compatable with your system also does aeris have tracking customized portals. for tracking in real time.
The device I am trying to get working is http://www.amazon.com/Floureon-OBD-GPS-Positioning-Diagnostic/dp/B017R6NT34?ie=UTF8&psc=1&re...
The device uses SMS to communicate. For example sending SMS command STATUS# causes the device to respond by SMS with a message containing status info. Sending the SMS command WHERE# causes the device to respond via SMS with current GPS coordinates.
If I send the command LANG,0# then via the NEO API I get back SET LANG OK:EN
if I send RESET# I get back RESET OK!
Since the basic SMS send response is working, can I assume that all SMS commands are working? One potential wrinkle is that the device send Unicode strings. Decoding the base64 and then decoding Unicode correctly produces the above strings, but are there other characters that might cause problems?
At the moment I have switched over to Twilio. The OBD GPS units themselves work fine with SMS. SMS is also cheaper with Twilio (All Carriers $0.0075 per SMS message).
So end result, there must be some device incompatibility when using IMSI instead of a regular phone number. What is most weird is that some messages work and some do not. It appears that the longer messages fail, so maybe there is a timing issue or data length issue (e.g. the device app only reads the first 10 digits of the SIM number).
Of course, I want to switch back to Aeris for security reasons but in the absence of an OBD GPS that works with IMSI, I am currently stuck.
Has anyone found a device that works reliably with IMSI (15 digit code)?
