How the vehicle 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 SIM card already installed powered up and ready to go. The SIM card comes with free credit to last 12 months unlimited 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 + VAT] and this will last another 12 months. Munster GPS will send you a text or email notification when the credit is about to run out and will include a link to top-up.
The tracker comes with a desktop web portal where you can track live on your PC monitor or alternatively you can track on your mobile phone app.
If you have a fleet of cars,vans or trucks we will set you up with an account to enable you to view all vehicles on the one monitor. You will also be able to set the tracker to alert you if the vehicle exceeds a pre-set speed or if the vehicle goes outside a pre-set route/area.

Notes and Conditions
Please note GPS trackers are dependent on Satellite and GSM coverage.
Make sure the GPS Tracker is in an optimum position in the vehicle to allow maximum satellite signal and make sure there is credit in the SIM at all times.
When Munster GPS supply a tracker with SIM card installed it has enough data credit for the tracker to work for 12 months with unlimited mileage and a 3 minute interval upload. Please make sure the tracker settings are not adjusted as this may affect your SIM credit.
The app and web portal are operated by the manufacturer and not by Munster GPS. In the unlikely event of down-time or app deletion we cannot be held responsible as it is under control of the third party. However we have been working with this particular manufacturer since January 2014 and there has been no down-time to date. Trackers cannot be installed in any vehicle without the driver and owners consent
