To coincide with National Missing Person week “Trace A Mobile.co.uk” announced the launch of its personal handheld GPS tracking unit.
The battery powered device is accurate to about 10 metres and is small enough to be fitted in a bag or carried in a pocket, measuring just 143.3mm x 76.2mm x 36.7mm and weighing 205 grams without batteries. The Trace A Mobile GPS tracker has the advantage it can be used outside of the United Kingdom.
Track A Mobile first launched GSM mobile phone tracking in the UK, in October 2003. The service uses the mobile network to locate handsets without the need for additional hardware, and is available in on all the four major UK networks; Orange, O2, T-Mobile, and Vodafone. However, the new GPS tracker has no network restriction and can thus be used also outside the UK and Northern Ireland. Thanks to the built in power source the unit is easy to install and provides flexible use for applications such as private or commercial vehicles, boats, trailers, or packages.
According to Trace A Mobile’s Managing Director Jonathan Cook the “Trace A Mobile GPS tracker” is the first of a range of GPS trackers to be launched by the company. The unit will retail at £229.99 plus VAT and includes 50 free tracks. Users can use their own SIM cards in the tracking unit in order to control their costs. The pay-as-you-go tracking lets the users decide how much to spend and when. The tracking software is accessed using a web browser providing global maps to display the location of the tracking unit anywhere in the world there is GSM coverage.
