The Number Plate GPS Tracker has now had some new enhancements. Improving the GSM signal strength was a major change. Placing the antenna between the PCB and the battery, ensured the GSM antenna was not shielded via the metal bumpers of some vehicles. It now includes WIFI/LBS tracking, this now gives further confidence in obtaining a position if the vehicle is parked inside a garage and a valid GPS position is not available.
Also there is a hugely added feature with the new audible sounder. This can be activated via the APP or the software. The purpose is to have the ability to accurately find the Number Plate GPS Tracker within a few centimetres.
The Number Plate GPS Tracker
A brilliant concept and extremely hard to find. The Number Plate GPS Tracker was designed to be covertly fitted into places, either behind the number plates on vehicles or into areas on a vehicle that conventional trackers cannot be used. The Number Plate GPS Tracker is very robust and thin and harsh handling is not a problem.
To retain its small size, it has been shrink wrapped, ensuring that it can still be charged via the Type C waterproof charging port.
If being used with the Normal tracking mode, you can expect around 7 to 10 days for the 1850mAh version and around 15-20 days for the 3000mAh version. This really depends on the tracking interval and how many kilometers the vehicle travels per day. However, this can be greatly extended if other modes are used.
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.
|1850mAh = 125 x 64 x 3 mm / 3000mAh = 185 x 64 x 3 mm||1850mAh or 3000mAh||1850mAh = Around 7 to 10 days / 3000mAh = Around 15-20 days|
