When the tracker is used on a school bus, it’s very important to be aware of two factors:
- How the tracker is positioned inside the backpack 🎒
- How the backpack is positioned inside the school bus 🚍
This is because the metal enclosure of the school bus will trap the electromagnetic signal in a faraday cage. This will cause the signal to be obstructed and locations to be missed.
In order to prevent this, please make sure that during the bus ride that the Invoxia logo is facing upwards and preferably out of the window. If the tracker is pointed towards the ceiling, the ground, on the metal sides of the bus, then the signal will not be communicated successfully to the server.
It is also important that the tracker is not inside the main pocket of the backpack. For best reception, please make sure the tracker is in an exterior pocket that will not be obstructed by a lunch box, books, a water bottle, or anything else.
