SPOT debuts SPOT Trace

SPOT has launched new SPOT Trace,  an anti-theft asset tracking device. SPOT Trace ensures airplanes, cars, motorcycles, boats, ATVs, snowmobiles and other valuable assets are where they need to be, notifying owners via email or text when movement is detected anytime, anywhere.

SPOT’s family of products uses 100% satellite technology to provide location-based messaging and emergency notification for on or off the grid communications.

SPOT Trace users can view their plane, boat, ATV, motorcycle or other asset’s GPS coordinates online 24 hours a day in near real-time through Google Maps.

With multiple mounting options, SPOT Trace is small and durable enough to be placed practically anywhere, according to company officials.

SPOT Trace also features customizable tracking, which allows users to track an asset’s GPS coordinates at 2½, 5, 10, 30 or 60 minute intervals.

The units sell starting at $99.95, with service plans from $99.99 a year.

    Wow – $100 to purchase and $100 a year to find your stuff. Just buy a cheap Android phone with a pay-as-you-go service plan then run the free program “android lost”. Done.

      Cell phone work well as long as you are in cell phone coverage areas. Not at all suitable when over the ocean or bush out of the coverage areas. I believe Android phones are a little more than $100 to purchase and to operate per year.

        Yes, cellphone coverage is a prerequisite for using a cellphone tracker. I bought an older Android phone on eBay for $50 and use a pay-as-you-go plan where I add minutes to the sim card as needed. No monthly service charge.
