Mirror Covert GPS Tracker
This was designed to be used for those places when placing a GPS tracker is difficult. Our own testing on our own vehicles showed us that this will fit behind a lot of vehicle mirrors.
It can also be placed in difficult places on the vehicle, like under the wheel arches, tucking it inside the plastic coverings, its also very easy to apply under the bumpers.
The unit allows you to bend it almost 140 degrees. It’s tough and robust and most of the PCB boasts a large flat GPS antenna, giving it great GPS performance.
This small unit is very covert and does not have a large battery, yet we have managed to place a 850mAh battery, giving around 7 days battery life in a tracking mode of say every 5 minutes.
There are other modes available for this Mirror Covert GPS Tracker that will enhance your battery live to many weeks or months.
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.
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.
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.
Charging the unit
The Mirror Covert GPS Tracker unit has a USB type C waterproof charger. So very simple and quick to charge.
