FAQ – Getting Started

What is included in the Gibi master kit box?

The Gibi master kit includes everything you need to get started.  It includes a Gibi GPS tracker, collar/harness attachment clip, charging cradle, USB cable, A/C adapter, and quick user guide.  See un-boxing video below.  Each Gibi tracker has a specific device ID.  This specific device ID is needed to create your Gibi account and subscribe for service.  Operation and use requires subscribing to Gibi’s subscription service plan.

 

How do I register my Gibi and create an account?

Before creating your Gibi account, please start charging the Gibi device.  Using a computer or tablet, go to login.getgibi.com using an Internet browser such as Safari, Chrome, or Internet Explorer. Click “Create Account” and enter the information requested, including selecting subscription service.  Please do not use auto-fill. Once you have created your account, you can access the Gibi App on your smartphone, tablet or computer using a browser.  To download the Gibi mobile app from the App Store (iOS) and the Play Store (Android), search for “Gibi Pet GPS Tracking Service.”

How do I activate the device?

When you create your Gibi account, the Gibi device gets activated.  If you have already placed your Gibi device in the charger to charge, wait for the fully charged alert.  If you have not placed your Gibi device in the charger to charge, please charge the device by sliding it into the charger and wait for the fully charged alert.   If your Gibi device has not yet synced while charging, please see below on how to orient and sync the device with the GPS satellites.  Also see FAQ on devices for information on the button light.

How do I orient and sync my device to GPS satellites?

Your Gibi device has synced with the GPS satellites when you see a paw print on the map.  Getting the first GPS location may take time, sometimes up to 20 minutes.  Once your device is fully charged, slide it out of the charger.  Take it outside to clear line of sight of the sky.  Wait until you see a paw print appears on the map.  To speed up the process, change the location Check-In rate to every 1 minute.  Please remember to change the Check-In rate back to 15 minutes or higher as battery life is reduced at faster Check-In rates.  If you don’t see a paw print after 20 minutes, please try rebooting the Gibi.  For more info, please see FAQ on Device and Battery.

How do I activate (add) another Gibi device to my account?

How do I center the map on my dogs location?
