Various Status window tabs display information about GNSS, GSM, I/O, Maintenance and etc. MSP500 has one user editable profile, which can be loaded and saved to the device. After any modification of configuration the changes need to be saved to device using Save to device button. Main buttons offer following functionality:

  1. Load from device.png Load from device – loads configuration from device.
  2. Save to device.png Save to device – saves configuration to device.
  3. Load from file.png Load from file – loads configuration from file.
  4. Save to file.png Save to file – saves configuration to file.
  5. Firmware update.png Update firmware – updates firmware on device.
  6. Read records.png Read records – read records from device.
  7. Reboot device.png Reboot device – restarts device.
  8. Reset configuration.png Reset configuration – sets device configuration to default.

Most important configurator section is GPRS – where all your server and GPRS settings can be configured and Data Acquisition – where data acquiring parameters can be configured. More details about MSP500 configuration using Configurator can be found here.

Quick SMS configuration

Default configuration has optimal parameters present to ensure best performance of track quality and data usage.
Quickly set up your device by sending this SMS command to it:

"  setparam 2001:APN;2002:APN_username;2003:APN_password;2004:Domain;2005:Port;2006:0"

GPRS settings:

  • 2001 – APN
  • 2002 – APN username (if there are no APN username, empty field should be left)
  • 2003 – APN password (if there are no APN password, empty field should be left)

Server settings:

  • 2004 – Domain
  • 2005 – Port
  • 2006 – Data sending protocol (0 – TCP, 1 – UDP)

Note: Before SMS text, two space symbols should be inserted.

Default configuration settings
Movement and ignition detection:
Accelerometer.png Vehicle movement will be detected by accelerometer Ignition detection-2-2.png Ignition will be detected by vehicle power voltage between 13,2 – 30 V
Device makes a record On Moving if one of these events happen:

Min distance.png Vehicle drives 100 meters Speed delta.png Speed difference between last coordinate and current position is greater than 10 km/h
Device makes a record On Stop if:
1h icon.png 1 hour passes while vehicle is stationary and ignition is off
Records sending to server:
120 s.png If device has made a record it is sent to the server every 120 seconds


After successful SMS configuration, MSP500 device will synchronize time and update records to configured server. Time intervals and default I/O elements can be changed by using Teltonika Configurator or SMS parameters.
