Attention:

At each location request, if the password has already been set, it will be an SMS message of the client (parent) and another SMS message back from the server (child);
If the password has not been set, extra messages are needed.

- Improvements in drawing of accuracy circle of the marker;
- Security fix on the message "Screen On";
- Fixed the logic of rerunning the command "screen on/off", saving up SMS messages;
- Incorporation of tracking system for identifying problems and difficulties of users.
