How it works

A long battery life of up to 5 years, up to 3000 GPS check-ins on two standard off the shelf Type C High Current lithium batteries

Can be preprogramed to send the GPS location every XX hours (usually once a day) when the asset is in stop position.

When vibration is detected the unit wakes up automatically and sends
an alarm and switches to motion mode sending GPS every XX minutes for as long as the asset is in motion mode (usually every 60 minutes).
