IMPORTANT

Once you have established your ideal location, (outdoors with a clear view of the sky) turn on your Tag(s) first, before setup. This will ensure the Tag has time to establish a strong GPS signal.

Things to Know Before Tracking

  • Moving the Base

    No Problem. It is possible to reposition the Base at any time. Simply pick up the Base (and Tripod) and move it to a new location.
  • Re-Calibration After Moving

    If tracking is on: Picking up the Base will automatically pause tracking and recording. Once stable, the Base will re-calibrate and resume tracking and/or recording

    If tracking is paused: The Base will re-calibrate once the user resumes tracking.
  • Tracking Distance

    Minimum Distance: The Base is optimized to track Tags at least 30 feet away. When tracking Tags inside a 30 feet radius, the Base may temporarily lose the subject.

    Maximum Distance: Up to 2,000 feet away. If Tags fall out of range, the Base will become idle, or track the next available tag in multi-mode.

Using the Track App

  • 01. Home Screen/Track App

    Within the HOME SCREEN, tap TRACK to enter the Track App.
  • 02. Track Button

    Tap the TRACK button.

    If “Ask to Track” was selected when setting up your Tag or no Tag is detected, follow the onscreen instructions.
  • 03. Tracking Action Sheet

    This is the tracking action sheet, which allows you to either begin tracking, or change tracking settings.

    Select TRACK.
  • 04. Track Modes

    Select the TRACK MODE that best matches your activity.

    Tap CONTINUE to begin calibrating the system.
  • 05. Calibration

    The Base and Camera will spin and tilt for about one minute as it calibrates the sensors.
  • IMPORTANT

    Before beginning your activity, we recommend that you walk back and forth in front of the Camera a few times in the area where you will be performing your activity. This will allow the camera’s smart tracking system to center you in the screen.

Calibrating

  • Successful Calibration

    Once calibration is successful, your Base will automatically begin tracking the selected Tag(s).

    Other successful calibration indicators:
    • The Camera viewfinder appears on the screen.
    • The LED at the front of the BASE blinks green.

    If every selected Tag indicates they do not wish to be tracked, then the Base will be idle.
  • IMPORTANT

    SOLOSHOT3 is designed to track subjects outside a 30 ft. radius. If the subject is inside this radius, tracking may not work properly.
  • Problem Detected

    Calibration may fail due to poor GPS signal or local magnetic interference. In this case, follow the on-screen instructions. Set up in a location with a clear view of the sky.

    DO NOT set-up near:
    • sources of magnetic interference
    • high voltage power lines
    • radar/radio jamming equipment
    • telecommunications towers

    These could interfere with the communication system.
  • Green Indicator LED States

    LED is highly directional and changes brightness with distance. If you can see it, the Base is pointing at you and you are within range.

    Slow Blinking
    Base is actively tracking. No problems detected.

    Rapid blinking or No blink
    Problem detected. Return to the Base immediately and resolve the issue via on-screen instructions.
