XTracker BR: Satellite Broadband GPS Vessel Tracking
XTracker BR (Broadband) is a robust, dependable and extremely compact tracking device that sends out GPS position reports at pre-programmed intervals.
Position reports contain date, time, latitude, longitude, and average course and speed over the ground. GPS position reports are recorded, transmitted, and posted on the web in 20 seconds, on average. XTracker’s modest power requirements make it ideal for remote locations where solar panels or batteries are the only source of electricity.
Because the XTracker BR routes the position reports through your satellite broadband device, the frequency of the position reports can be whatever you want. Hourly? Sure. Every 10 minutes? No problem. Every 30 seconds? Done.
There is no additional charge for XTracker services for increased frequency, although you may incur additional charges on your satellite airtime bill for the airtime required to send the GPS pings.
Easy Installation for Secure Vessel GPS Position Tracking
The XTracker BR is installed quickly and easily on a standard 1″ threaded antenna mount. The XTracker BR does not come with an antenna mount. There are many types of antenna mounts available from your local marine supply store, including pole-mounts, rail-mounts, mast-mounts, pipe-mounts, etc.
Up to 10 Year Battery Life
The XTracker BR can be powered in one of two ways: either by connecting the unit directly to a powering bank on board, or by wiring the unit to a standalone long-life battery (purchased separately).
Note: we do not sell batteries for this unit. We can recommend excellent batteries and tell you their life-expectancy, but you will need to purchase the battery separately from the equipment, as we do not sell or ship batteries for this unit.
