How to get a location of Monimoto at any given time?

It is not possible to see the location of Monimoto at any given time. Monimoto sleeps all the time and can only send locations when it is in Alarm mode. 

Such functionality allows the device to work in GSM off mode for around one year, without having to replace the batteries. We could implement the "get location" functionality, but the advantage of long battery life would be lost.

However if enabled, Monimoto can send it's location with the regular update every 24 hours. This feature reduces battery lifetime and by default is disabled.    

Additional feature 'Active Tracking': 

If your device was stolen with a Key Fob, you can go to Settings and press 'Start Active Tracking'. This will unpair all Key Fobs with the next regular update and allow the device to alarm even if a Key Fob is nearby. Depending on how much time is left until your next regular update, it can take between 5 minutes and 24 hours with the default setting. For example, if your next regular update is in 10 days, the device will delete the Key Fob and enter an Alarm state then.
