A mini GPS tracker can be used for many applications. For example, with a mini GPS tracker it is possible to secure objects, but also people. At Sitcon we have various mini GPS trackers for sale which can be ordered directly in our webshop or for sale in one of our stores. There are many different models available and we are happy to help you select the best mini GPS tracker for your situation.
When to choose a mini GPS tracker?
You can use a mini GPS tracker to secure valuables, such as a car, boat or caravan. You place the mini GPS tracker and connect it to the battery of the vehicle or choose a model with an internal battery if this is not possible. The GPS tracker contains a SIM card that is often supplied by the manufacturer in a kind of subscription form. The mini GPS tracker connects to the internet via this SIM card and sends the position information to a server. To view this information, log in via your smartphone or on a PC to the website of the server to which the mini gps tracker sends its information with a created username and password. You can then view the current location of the mini GPS tracker, but also see which route has been traveled.
Different mini models
Mini GPS trackers are available in many different models, but despite the wide range, most mini GPS trackers can be divided into the 3 groups below.
GPS tracker with battery connection
A mini GPS tracker with battery connection is suitable for vehicles that have a battery, such as a car, truck or camper. Depending on the type of mini GPS tracker, it only has a plus and minus connection for the battery or several connections such as a connection to the fuel pump, immobilizer and more. With these extra connections it is possible, for example, to start the vehicle via the app of the mini GPS tracer or to stop the fuel supply so that the vehicle will come to a standstill.
GPS tracker with internal battery
With a mini GPS tracker with a built-in battery, the applications are endless. As long as the GPS tracker can be placed in the object or attached to it, it is possible to secure it. For example, a mini GPS tracker with battery can be used, for example, to secure a suitcase, trailers, but can also be used for people. For example, there are special mini GPS trackers in the form of a bracelet or watch that are suitable for protecting people, such as children and the elderly.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of a mini GPS tracker?
A mini GPS tracker provides a high degree of security because you can always trace a vehicle, object or person. Due to the increasingly cheaper mini GPS trackers, this is feasible for more and more applications.
The disadvantage of a mini GPS tracker is that they require a SIM card and the use of this can sometimes be costly. On average, you should take into account an amount of 10 euros per month. In addition to these costs, there may also be costs for using the server to which the mini GPS tracker sends its locations. This is free for some trackers, but about 50 euros per year must be paid for the better platforms.
Buy a mini GPS tracker in the store?
Sometimes not all information online can be summarized properly. A mini GPS tracker is of course not something you buy regularly and we therefore advise you to visit one of our stores for advice. It is also often a lot clearer to see a product in real life to get an idea of size, shape and weight. You do not need to make an appointment to visit our stores, but you are welcome within the opening hours indicated on the store page.
