The water resistant GL300W is a powerful GPS Tracker. Its built-in GPS receiver has superior sensitivity and fast time to first fix. Its built-in 3-axis accelerometer allows motion detection and extends battery life through sophisticated power management algorithms. The GL300W supports Assisted GPS, as well as GSM cell-ID based positioning.
In the middle of the front panel you can see the emergency button. It’s thumb-size and easy to find without looking into it, nevertheless you’ll hardly push it occasionally. To confirm the SOS signal is sent the GPS tracker vibrates when the button pressed.
The GL300W GPS Tracker is remarkable for its battery life. The Li-pol rechargeable battery has capacity of 2600mAh. To charge the battery you can use included AC/DC adaptor (or any other similar adaptor with standard micro-USB plug) But it’s not only about the battery capacity that puts GL300W among the GPS trackers with the longest working time, the device also transmits the data over the 2G and 3G network. Many countries across the globe are closing down the 2G network.
The GL300W GPS Tracker also has the ability to store 10 000 positions on its internal memory, this is very useful when the device travels through an area with either poor or no GSM network. The device will then store this on its memory until the network is available and then transmit all the positions, to our server.
A great advantage is the fact that the GL300W GPS Tracker also uses the standard GNNS and Glonnass plus Galileo for its positioning. This hugely enhance GPS performance and accuracy and also helps with power consumption.
Available Tracking Modes
This mode will switch off the PCB completely for a selected period of time, for example ECO 4 hours, the board will wake every 4 hours and report a GPS or a GSM location, it will only report a GSM location if the PCB is not able to obtain a quality GPS fix. The board will then turn off and report again in a further 4 hours. Switching the device back to normal tracking mode can be done via the PC or APP, the PCB will only act on this action, when it’s time for the board to wake on the 4-hour update. Eco hugely improves battery life. The battery can last for months using this mode. Eco mode is available from 1-24 hours.
Normal Tracking Mode
This is the most frequent mode that most people use. Whist the PCB is moving it will track at the interval you requested. Example Normal Tracking Mode 10 seconds.At all times, the PCB is on in this mode, when it stops moving for 15 seconds, it will turn off GPS and disconnect the data connection, keeping the functionality of SMS so you can still send commands. By automatically switching off GPS and data connection while stationary, the battery life is greatly improved. While in this static mode, the device will wake up every 4 hours, get a GPS fix and send this information with battery level back to the server. This gives assurance that the device is still working and shows its last location.
You can change the tracking interval and send any type of command to the PCB whilst it is in this mode. The GPS will only try to get a fix when in motion, or when request is sent via the APP or panel. Compared to other modes, Normal Tracking Mode reduces the battery life, but the PCB has very low power consumption quality components, so depending on your choice of battery, this mode can be enjoyed for several months.
This mode forces the tracker to operate 24/7 updating its location regardless of motion state. The device will stay in this mode until switched to a different mode. This mode allows up to 1 second live tracking, but will have a serious effect on battery life due to continuous transmitting. However, this mode is ideal when live tracking an asset. Again, this can be activated via the APP and the panel.
Using this mode will switch the unit completely off for a scheduled time period, example Flight 12 hours, the unit will confirm to the server before switching off and display a timer clock that displays on the platform when the device will switch back on. When the 12-hour period has lapsed, the PCB will return to normal tracking mode.During the 12 hours off period, it is not possible to communicate with the PCB. This function improves safety when travelling on aircraft and increases battery life. You may choose to carry out this action on a daily basis from hour to hour, the choice is yours.
The device can be remotely turned off via the APP and Panel for a pre-determined time period, example Log mode 5 hours. The PCB will now turn off, but log and store all location points and update them to the server in the same format as if it was tracking live at the end of the time period. This mode will include data for stops and starts, and will not log when not in motion, the interval of logging when in motion can be set via the apps.
The on-board memory is around 1Gb and the device will be able to store 50,000+ locations whilst in this mode. Once the timer has expired for how long it is in log mode, it will power up fully, upload all data it has collected and then resume to normal tracking mode. The advantages are huge for those using this mode. Increases battery life, extremely difficult to detect a PCB that is not emitting any RF. It also allows you to reduce the size of your battery both in capacity and physical space allowing for a smaller more streamlined device.
Once this mode command has been remotely sent to the device, the PCB will switch off. When the board moves it will switch back on and track every x seconds. The board will automatically switch off after 120 seconds of non-motion, this is a default setting that can be changed. This mode again increases battery life. The normal tracking mode will only be accepted by the PCB when it’s in a motion state.
The magnetic water proof case has been made specially designed for the GL300W and the device slides inside with ease. The magnets are extremely strong and once you attach the rubber sealed lid cover, then tighten the two screws, you have a small magnetic power tracking device that will attach to most Metal objects.
GL300 GPS Tracker Summary
Powerful, simple and very accurate. Strong and robust and blessed with supreme stability and allows you to track live from 3 seconds.
