You are probably here because you want to protect your investment, or to let loved ones know where you and your vessel are, or perhaps you are here because you want to know where your vessel is while on charter.
Whatever the reason welcome to the often confusing and sometimes dishonest world of GPS tracking. We want to assure you that BOATTRACK is a genuine and honest website for all boating enthusiasts from weekend sailors to charter companies.
Please read the answers to questions displayed below to find out what you really need to know if you are not going to be disappointed with your purchase. We have tried on these pages to give clear and unbiased information as to why we think with our twenty plus years experience in Marine Tracking, we can help you achieve your goal and much more!
Below are the 'key question' people frequently ask us:-.
Above are the key points most mariners are interested in. Elsewhere you can read about how we have been around GPS and AAT (Automatic Asset Tracking) for over twenty years (mostly in the emergency sector) and how fifteen years ago we formed Boat Track to stop fellow 'Weekend Sailors' getting 'ripped off'. You will also find technical details about our equipment, if that is your thing!
If you are one of those people who thinks all modern marine trackers are the same, you are not wrong! Recent ones (those in the modern quad band 850/900/1800/1900) certainly yes, but that’s not the point, the key thing is - how clever is the software loaded on to them and is it designed for the special requirements of sailors? Ours certainly are.
Most importantly you will find a complete breakdown of all our charges and the reasons why we are a reliable alternative to companies that stop trading just after you pay a year up front (we ask for just a month and then set up monthly Standing Orders that you can cancel after the first month).
Important: If you really cannot afford one of our systems then buy a couple of bottles of wine and enjoy them instead! Please don’t be a mug and waste it on one of the many inferior system advertised on-line, that Microsoft, or Google will close down after a few weeks because the seller did not obtain a license for the maps, or where the system stops reporting because you have used up the months airtime credit the seller purchased a few days before you brought the unit.
