Since the earliest days of GPS tracking, we have tested 3ARC software with trackers from most of the hardware manufacturers. Some were hopeless and none were perfect.
As a result we evolved a "dream" specification for our own tracker hardware ...and now you can buy such a device: The 3ARC Vehicle Tracker.
Inside the rugged waterproof casing, you will find well-proven circuit designs that are carefully engineered from the best components and optimally controlled by 3ARC firmware that can be configured to suit your requirements. So you can be assured of reliable performance in every situation.
For maximum versatility, four inputs can be wired to a choice of sensors (or other external triggers) and one spare output can be connected to another device ...such as a relay to cut an ignition circuit (subject to suitable software settings).
If power to the 3ARC Vehicle Tracker gets cut, the internal 2000mAH battery will survive up to 40 days on standby (or can be set to wake and communicate at any mixture of intervals from 30 seconds to once a day). This tracker can be used with or without an external antenna. As a failsafe, the internal GSM/GPS antennae will switch on automatically if the external GSM/GPS antenna is disconnected.
A built-in motion sensor can also trigger communication by GPRS (with SMS text fallback) over any GSM network that uses 850, 900, 1800 or 1900MHz SIM cards.
