The XTracker IR from RedPort is a robust, dependable and extremely compact satellite tracking terminal that sends out GPS position reports at pre-programmed intervals from anywhere on the planet. It uses Iridium technology and because of Iridium’s pole-to-pole coverage, offers truly worldwide satellite position reporting. Position reports contain date, time, latitude, longitude, and average course and speed over the ground. XTracker’s modest power requirements make it ideal for remote locations where solar panels or batteries are the only source of electricity.
The XTracker IR is installed quickly and easily on a standard 1″ threaded antenna mount. The IR starts submitting GPS position reports for satellite vessel tracking immediately upon power up. Everything is controlled from shore, including position reporting and polling intervals. With a simple install it makes it that much more convenient.
Up to 10 Year Battery Life
The XTracker IR can be powered in one of two ways: either by connecting the unit directly to a powering bank on board, or by wiring the unit to a standalone long-life battery (purchased separately). Depending on the type of battery being used, the XTracker IR can last as long as 10 years without changing the battery or needing any kind of upkeep.
Ability to track hundreds of vessels or assets on one web-based monitoring system
Great position reporting, no complaints, works as it should. I've had it out with my boat for six months now without any issues with it.
Every year I go off the grid on a trek at sea and I recently added this tracker to my ship. It's really simple for my wife to keep track of my ship to help ease her mind. Then I have a backup as well in case something goes wrong.
I have a family business that I help manage with a small fleet of ships that are used for everything from deep sea fishing to just some simple recreational boating. We have one of these devices on every one of our ships and at first I was weary of them since I don't have any experience with equipment like this. At first it was a bit intimidating but after using the equipment for a few months now it is so simple that it's almost just second nature, exactly how you want it with tracking devices.
I fun a small fleet of ships that do scuba diving tours for tourists in Hawaii. We have RedPort trackers on each of our ships including this one. They all work flawlessly keeping track of our ships is really simple jjust using the web.
