QStarz finally comes out with a real time GPS tracking device. It is called QTracker and is still in sample phase. But we’re hoping we’ll get our own sample pretty soon. The idea is you put a SIM card (pre-paid recommended) in this device and dial this number from your personal cell phone and receive a text message back with a link to Google Maps. Brilliant! You can get moving alerts that can be sent up to three numbers. And it even texts you back when the battery is running low. The only thing you have to worry about is to find a SIM card that doesn’t charge you monthly fees for being idle and doesn’t expire.
This will potentially work in any country provided you plug in a SIM card that works where ever you are.
QStarz QTracker uses an MTK II GPS module which is capable of tracking 66 satellites at once. GSM frequencies it runs on are 850/900/1800/1900Mhz. It charges via mini USB in about 3 hours but the spec sheet does not mention how long it lasts. We’re hoping this real time GPS tracking device has an auto power off so it doesn’t waste batteries when your asset is parked somewhere for long periods of time.
We’ll keep you posted
