The PEBBELL.ONLINE web App (https://pebbell.online) can be used to show the latest reported position of a PEBBELL using google maps. The web App can be saved on a smartphone’s home screen and used like a native app. In addition to the current position the PEBBELL’s last ten waypoints or 24 hours can also be displayed. By clicking on a waypoint a legend will be shown including a link to google streeview and the time the PEBBELL entered and left the waypoint. From the web Apps toolbar the map type can be toggled between roadmap and satellite views. Additional services including online support and top up services are also provided via the web App menu.

  2. Tap the “Add to Home Screen” icon in the Share menu.
  3. You will be prompted to name the shortcut before tapping the Add button. The shortcut can be dragged around and placed anywhere, including in app folders — just like a normal app icon.  When you tap the icon, it will load the website in a normal tab inside the Safari browser app.
