AVT10 Standard Tracker (less aerials) 

This is our base unit, it is splash proof with separate aerials and will work well in most installations. If you are looking to cruse far off shore then then this unit is especially useful as it lets you mount your aerials higher (perhaps on the mast or bridge roof). We also do a range of magnetic or adhesive 'stick on' aerials that will work with this unit for easy installation. It needs a 10-30 volts and if you are on our Standard monthly rate can send a message live when equipment (Anchor, Engines, trim etc.) is being used.

Unit Cost £65 (less aerials)

Some of our Tracking Device Aerials

Aerial Choice

If you are purchasing our AVT10 then you will need two aerials (one for GPS and one for data) above shows our two most popular options. The first are adhesive aerials (mount the GPS aerial flat and the Data one upright), the other is a combined system, which hole mounts. We have other systems but one of these two will deal with 95% of most Boat and Vehicle installations.

Cost £12 (a pair Adhesive)

Cost £16 (Combined hole mount)

You can purchase the AVT10 with the above aerials by using the PayPal drop down options menu. If however you require a special aerial i.e. Covert, Mast Mount, etc. please phone first.

Solar Cell powering boat tracker

Not everyone has access to shore power, to keep the battery topped up! For those customers we offer a range of solar power options, this is a little bit too specialised to discus in depth here, but for most people a Solar Panel with cable (around £40) and a Charge Regulator (around £14) is all you need to keep our system topped up and we can supply these for you.

The Solar Panel can be mounted inside a glass hatch, behind a south facing window, or best of all laid flat on the deck, anywhere in fact where the sun can reach it. In the event your vessel does not already have electrics then a small Rechargeable lead battery can be purchased for less that £15 to help get it through the night.

Solar Cell powering boat tracker

Fast power boats: Most customer mount our units with a couple of Cable Ties which is fine for Sailing Boats and ordinary Motor Cruisers, if however you are operating a high performance 'wave crasher' then you may wish to consider one of our aluminium mounting 'U' brackets and at £9 each they will not break the bank.

Installation Information: All units come with full instructions and almost anyone who can strip a wire, can do the job. With the inbuilt aerial version of our trackers it is one lead to positive power and one to negative. Then mount the unit inside behind some wood , glass or plastic if it is not waterproof. If it is then it can go up high outside. Plus our helpline is always there for you to talk through, or debug your installation.

Why our system is the correct one for Boat Owners

Because our Tracking Devices end up in boats they can spend long times away out of coverage, unlike their vehicle mounted cousins We have given considerable thought to this and all our units will store your location when they cannot send it back to the server.

What this means is on a crossing from say Plymouth to France there would be a short area of no coverage. What someone watching would see is the vessel going out into the channel and then at some-point it would stop reporting and remain stationery on the map.

As soon as it picked up a cell-site on the other side, it would fill in the gaps and continue reporting. This would show in the reports just the same as if it had not been delayed and so you would still have the complete route and the true times at each point.

Another difference between our boats and cars is change of direction vehicle trackers tend to report in every 'X' seconds when moving and every 'Y' seconds when not (X is usually 2-5 Mins and Y 30-120 Mins). Our devices are programmed in the same way but we add another dimension 'Direction', we can configure the unit to send an extra fix if the boat changes direction (Tacking) by more than 35, or 90 degrees. We can even configure them to update based on distance travelled (ideal for slow moving boats).
