Great tracker, and just wondering if this is possible.

I live in Central London and bike theft is high, therefore I have a big chain/padlock on the back wheel, a disc lock on the front, plus the FMB920.

When I park up, I take the ignition key out, the Tow alarm 'Activation Timeout' is set to 5 mins which is enough time to put the locks on without alarming.

Then when I get to the bike I have to take the locks off, and while doing this the Tow Alarm is triggered, is there a way that if my mobile is in proximty, the Tow Alarm is held off using the bluetooth connection, or is there another solution?

Hello Vinnie, 

Good day. Thank you for your question.

Kindly make changes to your Towing Detection settings in the Configurator (see attached - example) as this could be the reason why the event is triggered due to the movement or elevation detected by the device when the locks are taken off.

Also, you may disable the towing detection function either via Bluetooth, GPRS, or SMS command. 

If you want to use SMS command, the structure is as follows:

With login and password : <login><space><password><space>setparam 11600:0

Without login and password : <space><space>setparam 11600:0

If you are sending via GPRS then you may skip the login, password, and <space>.

The parameter list can be found here -

The SMS/GPRS command list can be found here -

If you would like to use the Bluetooth command then you may send the command via the serial Bluetooth terminal application that can be found in the play store -

The command structure can be obtained from your Sales Manager. If you don't have any contacts with our Sales managers, please contact them on our official website and click on the "Contact Us" button. When you will click, please fill the form and submit it.

Note: as a topic, please choose "Vehicle telematics" or you can send an e-mail with the description of your situation to

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards.
