The Connectivity Update

- 12th of April, 2017

There’s a new software update for your Tinitell! Please update your Tinitell today to get the best performance from your device:

  • We’ve improved the connectivity algorithm for tracking – this means you will get better GPS location updates and less errors;
  • We’ve made it possible for you to see SMS messages sent to Tinitell in the app – for example, you can now receive SMS messages with credit status from Tinitell’s carrier (SMS forwarding via Bluetooth to the app).

How to perform the software update:

  • Update the Tinitell app via Google Play or App Store and then follow these steps.
  • Switch Tinitell ON and charge it until it has at least 50% battery.
  • Bring Tinitell close to your smartphone.
  • Open the Tinitell App and switch on your smartphone’s Bluetooth.
  • Tap on the Tinitell icon in the bottom right corner of the app.
  • Swipe up the Tinitell menu screen.
  • Tap on “Tinitell Settings”.
  • Tap on “Software Update”.
  • Tap on “Update Now”.
  • When the app displays the message “Your Tinitell is now up to date” tap on “Done”.
  • Tinitell will restart automatically. Please allow up to 5 minutes for Tinitell to power on.
  • You’re done! :)
