*Available on 4G LTE Networks Worldwide 

The Industry's Most Versatile GPS Trailer Tracker Designed Specifically For Trailer Tracking

Packaged in a robust, waterproof IP67 enclosure and supporting a variety of sensors such as temperature and door, the Piccolo Hybrid+ is a complete trailer tracking solution designed for your trailer tracking needs, automatically switching from regular vehicle tracking mode to asset tracking mode when external power is disconnected, providing comprehensive visibility for trailers parked at job sites waiting to be unloaded and reloaded.

5+ Year Battery Life

Packaged in a robust IP67 waterproof enclosure with a large 7800 mA rechargeable lithium back up battery that enables the unit to send up to 5000 GPS locations on a single charge.

Comprehensive Trailer Visibility

Know when trailer is disconnected from the cabin and the ability to pair truck to trailer (which trailer is attached to which truck).

Zero Maintenance

Device recharges when the trailer is hooked up to a truck, removing maintenance and battery charging burdens.

Temperature Monitoring

For temperature controlled trailers, device lets you monitor up to 6 different cold zones simultaneously, for maximum temperature monitoring and control.

Mode Of Operation

Real-Time Vehicle Tracking Mode

When externally powered (tethered to the power of the trailer), the Piccolo Hybrid+ operates in real-time vehicle tracking mode sending GPS in high frequency, for example every minute.

Asset Tracking Mode

Once power is disconnected, the Piccolo Hybrid+ automatically switches to Asset Tracking (AT) mode, sending an alert on trailer disconnect and providing complete visibility on the whereabouts of your trailer, sending a GPS check in 1/ day when parked (user-definable).

Vibration or Motion Mode

In AT Mode, once movement/vibration is detected, the Piccolo Hybrid+ will automatically wake up, send an alert and will report more frequently for as long as the vibration continues. For example, every 30 minutes (user configurable).

Portable Tracker Mode

The Piccolo Hybrid+ can be supplied with a DC plug in place of the wire harness. With this configuration, the Hybrid+ serves as a standalone, autonomous container or asset tracker with a 5-year battery life or up to 5000 GPS on a single charge when powered by the internal 7800 mAH rechargeable lithium battery.
