Solar Powered GPS Trackers add a whole new dimension to your asset tracking options. For a long time, power was the limiting factor to tracking your assets in remote areas. With our Solar Powered trackers, that’s no longer an issue. We have two options: 4G/LTE Solar trackers and Satellite GPS Trackers. The 4G Solar Trackers use the cellular networks while the Satellite trackers us Globalstar’s satellite network to transmit the data.
These Trackers are powered by the sun which charges their internal batteries. The batteries allow for decent reporting frequencies. The 4G and Satellite trackers have different max reporting frequencies.
The 4G Solar powered tracker are a really intriguing option and really open the door to tracking assets like trailers and equipment that don’t have power.
4G vs Satellite
4G Trackers use the cellular networks, this allows pretty regular reporting, depending upon selected data plan. Satellite Trackers are a bit different. These trackers use the Globalstar satellite network.
The main advantage of these satellite trackers is they can report from areas where there is no cellular coverage. Reporting frequency can not be changed after it ships.
