I can’t pair my trackers.

Please ensure the trackers are fully charged and that you have switched on bluetooth. Also ensure that you are placing your phone directly on top of the tracker before pressing “Pair”. If the app still isn’t pairing with the trackers, please do the following:

  • Completely close the app and restart your phone
  • Place the trackers on charge
  • Open the Carv app, and follow the steps to pair your trackers. For a reminder of how to do this see: How to pair your trackers

My trackers are stuck on updating firmware

If you are unable to pair your trackers because they are stuck on updating firmware you will need to follow the steps below:

  • Select the three dots found at the bottom right-hand corner of your screen
  • Once there, select the “Carv setup" tab at the top of your screen
  • Select "Setup Left"/"Setup Right"
  • Click on the "Tracker" tab in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen
  • Click on the three dots in the top right hand corner of the screen
  • Select "Recover"
  • If you’re still experiencing firmware issues, please try on another device, if you have access to one. Successfully updating the firmware first on another device may resolve the updating issues on your own device.

My trackers are flashing red while charging

Please try resetting your trackers:

  • Select the three dots found at the bottom right-hand corner of your screen
  • Once there, select the “Carv setup" tab at the top of your screen
  • Select "Setup Left"/"Setup Right"
  • Click on the "Tracker" tab in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen
  • Click on the three dots in the top right hand corner of the screen
  • Select "Reset"
  • Please note that you will only be able to see this reset option if your tracker is paired to your phone

This will reset your trackers and the lights should now behave as expected. If your tracker continues to flash red, please submit a bug report and contact us via the issue form at the bottom of this page.


My Carv trackers keep disconnecting from my phone

The human body can sometimes act as a source of interference for bluetooth signals. If your trackers are frequently disconnecting from your phone, we recommend you try moving your phone to a different pocket so that it has a clear line of sight to the trackers. For example, we suggest carrying your phone in a front chest pocket and having the trackers at the 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock positions on your boots.

We also recommend that you try toggling your Bluetooth on and off on your phone. If you are using an Android device you should also try clearing your Bluetooth Cache and then repairing your trackers.
