Note! Device Launcher can detect a device only when USB debugging is enabled in the device system settings, under Developer options. On Android 4.2 and higher, the Developer options screen is hidden by default. To make it visible, go to Settings > About phone and tap Build number seven times. Return to the previous screen to find Developer options at the bottom.
On screenless radios, USB debugging is usually enabled by default.

APK - Select APK file to install on a device. Latest WalkieFleet APK is published on DOWNLOAD page.

Install APK - Install APK on connected device.

Uninstall Client App - Uninstall WalkieFleet APK on connected device. Makes sense when APK to be applied has older version than client installed on the device.

Screenshot – makes screenshot on connected radio. May be useful for screenless devices.

Startup Settings tab

Override Startup Settings – Apply settings specified on the tab upon pressing Launch Client button.

Wfinit.cfg – Select wfinit.cfg file to apply on client device. Note that all settings defined in wfinit.cfg will be applied to the device. Not only login credentials.

User Name, Password, Server Address – Login credentials to use on the device upon pressing Launch Client button.

WiFi Settings tab

Specify WiFi credentials to enable on the device and click Enable WiFi button.

Note! Be careful applying WiFi credentials on devices running Android older than 4.1. They will be applied for the first time but won’t be amended later in case if some changes are required for the same SSID.
