Android Probes Alarms



We are currently trying to use the PRTG for Android mobile probe. The overall goal is to have the device (along with others eventually) on a Geo-Map with other stationary devices, to show the moving location of dispatched technicians during business hours. However, I set up the probe and it seems to trigger alarms quite often. How do I set this up so that no alarms show up when the phone is not feeding data?

it is not possible to show no alarms at all. You only can turn of the Notifications for the whole Android Probe.
As regarding the self updating Geo Map, please refer to this article.
Best regards
