  1. The GPS tracker device is hooked up on my two dogs. I cannot get it live. Right now one shows where dog was 5 days ago and the other one shows 4 days ago. I punch on the live button and nothing happened. My phone is Verizon android. Do you have me hooked up on Verizon or some other company. Just thought this might be the problem.
