Mini Magnetic GPS Tracker
Real time magnetic GPS tracker with average of two weeks battery life – price includes first year’s running cost (tracking console, SIM data, text commands).
A GPS tracker which reports its locations in real time. View current location and previous journeys using the included online tracking console on your computer or smartphone. Supplied fully set up and ready to go. This tracker really does make it easy to see where a vehicle is going.
This will track for about two weeks of average useage before you need to recharge it. However the smart tracking console allows you to change tracking intervals or even put it to sleep when you wish which can extend battery life even more.
When used with the included waterproof pouch and very strong magnet it is ideal for attaching outside a vehicle and is suitable for a wide range of covert surveillance uses.

Complexity: Suitable for beginners and professionals alike. Supplied fully set up and linked to online and mobile tracking consoles. Straightforward instructions are included and we are here to help if needed.
Tracking Frequency: Every 30 seconds whilst vehicle moving is ideal, but you can vary this to suit your needs.
Accuracy: Locations accurate to within a few metres. Note that if GPS signal is hindered by poor positioning of the tracker or for example by tall buildings, dense trees and similar then accuracy may vary.
Deployment: Charge the tracker, switch it on and take it for a walk or a drive so that you have some sample tracking locations on your tracking console. Log in to your tracking console and check you can see these locations. Think about where you are going to position the tracker:
- It needs GSM & GPRS (mobile phone & internet) coverage in order to report in – this is not normally an issue in most of the UK.
- It needs a GPS fix in order to get its location – this means you may hide the tracker away under a certain amount of plastic, material, glass etc. but not metal. It will only track indoors if near a window. It won’t track in underground car parks or in, for example garages. If fitting on the outside of a vehicle using the magnet a good idea is to reach it up behind the rear plastic bumper cover where it should affix to the metal of the car, be shielded from view and excess water and will be able to get a good GPS fix.
Once you have found somewhere you think is suitable, test the tracker in that position and adjust positioning as required.
