Tell more more about the 4 Options

The four options are:

GPS High – this uses your phone’s GPS to provide continuous location data every 10 seconds. It is the most accurate setting. The data is collected even when no cell signal is available.

GPS Normal – this uses your phone’s GPS to provide continuous location data to the system every 1-2 minutes. With this setting the battery use is minimised whilst still providing an accurate location in case of emergency.

Non GPS – updates your location at regular intervals. This setting maximises battery life whilst providing an approximate location. This should only be used if an accurate location is not required.
