## Steps to use SDK into your project

#### Step 1: Import Intouch SDK
import MapmyIndiaIntouch from 'mapmyindia-intouch-react-native-sdk';

Step 2. Check if Intouch SDK is already initialized

const  status = await  MapmyIndiaIntouch.isInitialized();

Step 3: Initialize Intouch SDK

Initialize the SDK with your Client ID and Client Secret and device name.Device name helps to identify the user on Portal.

.then(entityId => {


Initialize the SDK with your Client ID , Client Secret , device name and deviceId. deviceId should be unique ID for every user.

  • deviceId will be used to store the data against the particular user.
  • deviceName will be used to identify the user on Portal
(result) => {
if (result === 'success') {
} else {

Note:This method can be used in case if your users uses two mobile phone. In this case, Both the mobile phone data will be pushed against the same deviceID. So ensure that before user logging into the new phone, logout the user from previous phone and call the stop tracking method. So that always tracking data will come from the single phone.

Step 4: Check if Intouch SDK is already running

const  status = await  MapmyIndiaIntouch.isRunning()

Step 5. Start tracking

Track your app user's phone live location by using the below method.


You can start tracking using below three options

  • MapmyIndiaIntouch.BEACON_PRIORITY_FAST
  • MapmyIndiaIntouch.BEACON_PRIORITY_OPTIMAL(default)
  • MapmyIndiaIntouch.BEACON_PRIORITY_SLOW

Note: If no priority provided default will be used.


standByTimeInMins: 1,//mandatory
timeWhileMovingInSec: 10,//mandatory
autoTrackingConfig: {endTimeConfig: {hour: 7, minute: 58, amPm: "pm"}}
  • timeWhileMovingInSec:(number) tracking api hit time while moving in seconds.

  • standByTimeInMins:(number) tracking api hit time while standby in minutes.

Only for android Platform

  • enableRequestPermissionIfMissing(boolean) Location permissions will handle by SDK if set to true.Default value is true
  • autoTrackingConfig(object): To set auto tracking settings:
