Q.   How do your GPS trackers work?

A.   All of our GPS (Global Positioning System) trackers obtain their location using a fix from at least 4 satellites and in the case of our live trackers such as the Track Pods and Enforcers the position is sent to the customers mapping panel which can be accessed via the internet on a PC, tablet or mobile phone. Or in the case of our text trackers such as The Sentinel a text message with its location and a colour map WAP link.

An example of how a mapping panel works is shown on this link  http://www.trackershop.ie/mapping-panel

Q.   Does a GPS tracker work inside a building?

A.   GPS trackers get optimum GPS signal when used outside. Inside buildings the signal can be restricted which in turn gives restricted tracking.

Q.   Can your magnetic trackers be placed under a vehicle, won’t they fall off?

A.   Our covert magnetic trackers are designed to be fitted under a vehicle or asset. They are fitted with high grade neodymium industrial magnets some of which have a strength hold of 50kg. As long as the magnets are fully attached to the metal chassis of the vehicle (Not the exhaust pipe) the magnet(s) will keep the tracker in place.
