How the Boat or Outboard Marine GPS Tracker works
The tracker receives a signal from the sky satellites and sends the position information through the internet to your phone app or desktop computer.
When you purchase this tracker it comes with a free SIM card already installed, powered up and ready to go. The SIM card comes with free credit to last 12 months based on average mileage and three minute position upload intervals. You can even track it coming towards you in the post. After 12 months you can add credit to your SIM for a small fee of €35 and this will last another 12 months.
The tracker comes with a desktop web portal where you can track live on your PC or alternatively you can track on your mobile phone app.
If you have a fleet of boats for example boat rental you will be able to locate each one at any given time. You will also be able to set them up so the tracker will alert you if the boat exceeds a pre-set speed or if the boat goes outside a pre-set route/area.
