Mobile SIM card required


GPS trackers require a mobile SIM card so they can send their location data to you and to the website which stores its location and travel history. It also allows you to control the tracker from your mobile phone usually by text or data.

Getting the correct SIM card for your tracker is critcal and simple

A simple option is to purchase a standard PrePay SIM card. VOICE-TEXT-DATA

The type of SIM card needed must have voice, text and data, same as you would get for your mobile phone.

The Tracker for standrad usage consumes very small amount of data and can be very low cost. When you activate your Prepaid just choose a Longer Life option for your Prepay SIM.

SIM costs on PrePay can be a low as $5.00 to $7.00 per month, making PRE-PAID the most afforable. If you set up more  warning and alerts on your tracker then this will consume more and result in increased monthly costs

If you wish to eliminate all charges, speak to the SIM card provider about sharing these costs with your mobile phone account. If you phone account has unlimited texts and data, then the tracker has no ongoing costs !
