How to connect to Navixy server

Coban GPS306 is tightly integrated with this software platform.

Activation process

Automatic activation (recommended)

The software platform supports automatic device activation by applying APN settings, server address and port, as well as recommended tracking mode though the SMS channel. Normally you don’t need to configure anything manually. Just install the SIM card, switch the device ON and make sure it is located in the place with good GPS signal reception.

When you activate a device, the following SMS commands are sent from server to device:

SMS command from
Server to Device
SMS reply from
Device to Server
begin123456 begin ok! Activating device setup
 apn123456 <apn_name>  APN ok  Set up APN name
 up123456 <apn_login> <apn_pass> user,password ok! Set APN login and password
 gprs123456  gprs OK! Enable GPRS mode
 adminip123456 47750  adminip ok! Set up server address and port

Some parameters will depend on your cellular network operator:

  • <apn_name> – APN name
  • <apn_login> – APN login
  • <apn_pass> – APN password

As soon as these commands are executed the GPS tracker will connect to the server, and the rest of configuration process will be done via GPRS channel.

Important notice:

  • Do not set any password on the device (by default: “123456”)
  • Do not set any master number prior to the device activation
  • Do not set the Time zone, it must be UTC+0h as per default
  • Do not set any pin-code to your SIM card

Manual configuration

If you experience issues with the SMS delivery from the platform to device in your country, you can setup device manually by sending the above list of commands from your mobile phone.

Default settings

Tracking mode

By default tracking by distance (100m.) is set, as field tests show this is one of the most preferable tracking modes. However, you can change tracking mode remotely in “Device” section.


  • SOS button. When you activate a GPS306 device, the new rule “Emergency (SOS) button” is created automatically. That means the event will be logged by default and shown on the screen and in Monitor mobile application. If you want to get instant notifications by Email, SMS you should update contacts in this rule.
