Location states help LINK determine the location you see in your app as well as manage feature functionality to conserve battery.
The three Location states are With you, Near base station and Away.
- In “With you” and “Near base” you’ll see your smart phone and base station’s location on your app screen
- We will notify you if your dog has a location state change to or from “Away” so that you can track location with GPS
- Getting an “Away” message doesn’t mean your dog is lost!
- It could just be with someone that does not have the LINK AKC app, like your dog walker or child.
- Feature functionality is limited in “Near base”, in order to conserve battery. Some feature functionality is impacted in "Away" in order to prioritize location tracking (for example, you cannot adjust temperature alert preferences in "Away").
