Trackers

I am keen to keep an 'eye' on our 2 boat fleet, ideally from any desktop, or even my mobile. It must have at least a 7 day track recording facility.

The choice of units available is mind boggling. Can anyone that has first hand experience of such a system recommend a suitable tracking system.

Mark

ais

Hello

Have you thought of using AIS. If you get it fitted then you can track it on the website www.shipais.com. Everyone else can see though as a down side and the signal can vary on the west coast.

Cheers

Ship AIS

Thanks, but I dont think the Ship AIS website has the ability to show historical track? Do you use it?

Mark,
We use Quartix GSM systems in out Vehicles- Supplied and fitted by Premier Auto Electrics in Glasgow. There also used to be a guy at Kip- Island Communications?? that developed a system for logging.
Cheers,
Drew

ais

hello

aye you can track it. just search the name of the vessel then it pops up and a wee calendar on the left hand side. just click on the relevant dates.
Andy Gee sounds like his system is better though. better signal, private, etc

cheers

Trac-It

Hi all
we've just launched a self contained, waterprrof, rugged, small, security tracking device called Trac-It, It uses motion sensors, GPS, GPRS and RF technology.
It is Thatcham approved.
A user can have multiple 'assets', which can be varied, (boats, cars, trucks, whatever), all visible as personalised (named) icons on a web portal.
One trac-It phone number is stored within the user's mobile, where all of the communications from all of the assets is sent, making it very simple.
Multiple email / mobile numbers can be added (per differenet asset), within the portal.
All sorts of information is transmitted back to the user, battery life, movement detection, and the Trac-It goes into 'live track mode' (every 60 secs) when these alerts are raised. Then all of those email / mobile numbers are alerted too.
If an alert is raised, the user (and those that are included in the text / email list), can aske the Trac-It uit where it is, and it's exact position (lat long ), will appear through a text, with location viewable on a map.
Also alerted (an option) is an approved secure monitoring service, who will liase with the authorities to get your asset back in the event of a theft.
the real beauty is that the user can self manage the trac-It devices, and act accordingly.
You can set each Trac-It device to act as a journey monitoring device, as each journey (every 60 secs), can be logged displaying on a map, with speed indicated too.
Any questions:
Jonathan@blackspot.com
thanks
Jonathan

Website? Photos? Cost? Running costs? Trade membership

Does my basic ref to the above warrant it? I was answering a question!

No seriously, if some-one wants to talk to me about trade membership, then drop me a line.

Whilst Trac-It has been developed with marine industry 'in mind', and it's a perfect solution, it is quite niche!

Best
