Event Tracking

GPS Tracking for Hiking, Running, Cycling, Watersports, Motorsports, Charity Challenges

GPS Tracker Hire

We can provide single mini GPS tracking devices to individuals, or sometimes tens or hundreds of GPS trackers to event organisers.  The trackers are easy to operate with a single power button to set them running. The trackers are programmed to send their location to the tracking website at set intervals (15 seconds to 10 mins). The tracking website shows a map with a Pin/flag highlighting the current location of each GPS tracker. It shows the time the update was received, and information such as the speed and status (moving, paused etc).

If your event or expedition is somewhere really remote, then we also stock Garmin In-Reach Iridium devices which are two-way satellite communication trackers, that allow you to send messages back and forth as well as be tracked anywhere on the planet, including at sea. They also have in-built maps, and can be used a satellite navigation devices if required.

Even our standard trackers also feature an SOS button, which we can associate with up to three mobile numbers. If activated, all three mobile numbers will receive an “Emergency SOS request”, with the location, date and time. The tracker status also turns “Red” on the tracking map.

To provide a safe and stable service we have servers in the UK, with backups in Germany and Holland, so you can be assured of a reliable service for your personal challenge or event.
