This covert GPS tracker is so thin that it can be positioned covertly behind a vehicle number plate in seconds.
It’s about 3mm thick and so just slots up behind the registration plate and is powered by a built in, rechargeable 3000mA battery. This means no cables, wires or complicated installation required.
The following video made by the manufacturer shows a couple of different versions but we stock the 3000mA version to give you longer running time before a recharge is required..
How long will the tracker last before needing a recharge?
This covert number plate GPS tracker has a 3000mA built in rechargeable battery. How long the battery will last is completely dependent upon how often the tracker is moving, how frequently you have the tracking reporting in and which battery option you choose, which tracking mode you choose etc. – the 3000mA battery can offer weeks or even months of running time before needing a recharge.
Is the Number Plate GPS Tracker weatherproof ?
Yes, it is and when positioned behind a number plate it’s quite well sheltered too. The charging port should always be facing downwards when located on a vehicle so this helps to prevent any weatherproofing issues too.
Is the Number Plate tracker a big unit?
No! Have a watch of the video above and you will get an idea of how small they are (the video shows the 1000mA version whereas we stock the 3000mA version for longer battery life). The 3000mA version is less than 3mm thick!
Dimensions are approximately 18cm long and 6cm wide (but less than 3mm thick).
How do I recharge the trackers’ battery?
Your number pate GPS tracker comes with a charging cable. You can charge via mains power or any USB port.
How do I pay for using the tracking service moving forwards?
There is nothing more to pay! No monthly fees or top up payments!
Our unlimited tracking packages mean that you do not have to worry about topping up or paying anything extra for the entire length of the subscription you choose. Along with completely unlimited tracking you also receive 25 SMS command credits every month (added to your tracking account automatically on the 1st of every month) and any credits not used are rolled over to the following month and if you run out in the meantime you can buy more here.
What are the SMS credits (command credits) for?
SMS credits are only used for when you send a new message to your tracker from the tracking website or app, for instance you may want to change the reporting interval from every 30 seconds to every 10 minutes. An SMS credit is also used if you have set the GPS tracker to send a message to your contacts if, for example, it leaves or enters a certain area or zone that you have set up.
You can also use notifications to receive alerts to your mobile phone, for example your tracker leaves a zone you have set up and a notification will show up on your mobile phone screen. These notifications can be enabled & disabled by clicking on the Cog icon in the top right hand corner of the tracking app after you login, then go to Push Settings.
Can I use my GPS tracker overseas and will this cost me extra?
Our GPS trackers will work in pretty much every country in the world at no extra cost to you.
The Number Plate GPS Tracker only works on the 2G network – it will not work in countries without a 2G network.
We have free apps for apple & android devices, just search “trackserver” in the app store or play store to download free of charge. These excellent apps mean that you can control and monitor your tracker from pretty much any mobile device whilst you are on the move.
Please note, the apps are slightly scaled down versions of the main tracking panel and so do not offer all of the features.
There are various tracking modes available which you can select between at the click fo your mouse button when on the tracking panel, some help to save battery life and others make it more difficult to be detected if it’s in a situation where this may be important. Here is an explanation of each mode:
Normal Tracking Mode – this is the default mode and used by 95% of customers, 95% of the time. You can set how often it updates with a new position when on the move and it will drop into sleep mode when not moving.
Eco Mode – 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.
Flight Mode – Using this mode will switch the GPS tracker 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.
Log Mode – The device can be remotely turned off via the APP and Panel for a pre-determined time period, example Log mode 5 hours. The PCB will now turn off, but log and store all location points and update them to the server in the same format as if it was tracking live at the end of the time period. This mode will include data for stops and starts, and will not log when not in motion, the interval of logging when in motion can be set via the apps. The on-board memory is around 1Gb and the device will be able to store 50,000+ locations whilst in this mode. Once the timer has expired for how long it is in log mode, it will power up fully, upload all data it has collected and then resume to normal tracking mode. The advantages are huge for those using this mode. Increases battery life, extremely difficult to detect a PCB that is not emitting any RF.
Park Mode – 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.
