Notes about using the app

  • Install TagMax for iOS from the Apple App Store or TagMax for Android from the Google Play Store
  • Ensure your EID Reader is updated to the latest software as well as firmware
  • You will be asked to allow TagMax to access your location. Click "Allow" as this permission is needed for obtaining the GPS coordinates that are stored with your scans
  • New to the idea of EID? Interested in a complete herd management solution, such as EID + software? We can help! One of the biggest things we can help you with is to ask you questions and help you through the answers.
