Our GPS trackers are constantly monitoring for any movements that occur. When a movement occurs it powers on it's GPS receiver to determine the location. This increases battery life. But in some cases you way want to shut down the tracker. Shutting down the tracker means that it get's completely powered off and you can't remotely turn it on (because it has no power). The only way to turn it on is by pressing the button on the device which is located on Tracker, Pro under the power icon. On Mini it's under the Automile logotype. On Solar the button is recessed into a small hole left from the power text. See images below which is helpful to find the power button. Please NOTE you can't shutdown the tracker with the button. It's only used to power on the device.
Powering down a tracker is very seldom used and from 25 October 2019 we decided to remove the feature from the mobile apps to avoid confusion when powering down trackers accidentally. We have kept the shut down feature in the desktop app at https://app.automile.com.
