Requires Subscription to Spot Trac
The SPOT Trace offers advanced theft-alert and location tracking for larger movable assets such as cars, boats, aircraft, motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATVs, PWC, travel trailers, RVs, and construction and farm equipment.
Hidden in your vehicle or other valuable asset, the SPOT Trace allows you to track your asset in near real-time, providing a virtual breadcrumb trail of your assets location. GPS locations are sent at predetermined tracking intervals, based on your selections in your SPOT Trace account
Instantly receive a text or email when your most valuable assets move, or follow them on Google Maps anytime using your phone or computer. Custom tracking options allow you to select the rate at which updates are sent every 2, 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes.
Mount the Tracer in any hidden location in your vehicle - in a boat locker, under a vehicle engine cover or cowling. The unit can be mounted under fiberglass, glass, or fabric, but metal obstructions should be avoided.
The SPOT Trace motion-activated tracking device features built-in motion sensors that send periodic GPS locations only when the asset is moving. To save power, the Trace enters a suspend mode when the asset is stationary for more than 5 minutes, but tracking resumes if the vehicle moves again. Alerts are sent to you every time the asset starts moving, stops moving, and periodic location data is sent at your predetermined intervals while the vehicle is in motion.
A special "Dock Mode" can be used for vehicles like boats, which may have some degree of normal movement, to prevent false alarms. Normally the SPOT Trace is battery powered, but since Dock Mode may require more power than other modes, it is recommended that you use the supplied USB power cord
In order to function as described, the SPOT Trace requires both an activation fee and annual satellite subscription (currently only $100 per year). For complete details on SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger plans, visit www.findmespot.com/ServicePlans on the worldwide web.
The SPOT Trace also notifies you if someone turns off the device. You will also receive a daily alert with GPS coordinates, so you know your asset is secure. Receive a notification when the device's batteries are low.
Expected battery life depends on the mode selected, frequency of messages, ease of satellite acquisition, temperature conditions, etc., and varies from 3 days under the most demanding conditions, to as long as a year or more with 60 minute updates and little vehicle movement. Choosing longer intervals between messages with lengthen battery life.
