The Best Satellite Trackers for Outdoor Adventures

Introduction to Satellite Trackers

If you wanted to monitor the location of a valuable asset, fleet, or VIP, a satellite GPS tracker from OSAT is the ideal satellite solution. Our trackers employ the world’s leading satellite networks in order to achieve global or near-global coverage, so you can monitor your asset, team, or individual remotely from any location. Our trackers are typically pocket-sized, compact, lightweight, and durable so they can withstand harsh environments, unpredictable movement e.g. if they’re placed on a vehicle or shipping container, and provide accurate, up-to-the-minute location data that can be viewed on a central mapping portal.

Comparison of Different Satellite Trackers for Fleet Management

Fleet management is one of the many applications our customers use our satellite trackers for. Monitoring a fleet of vehicles is a critically important process, so the need for accurate, reliable, and regular tracking intervals is vital. Here are three trackers that rank among the top satellite trackers for fleet management:

  • SmartOne C Satellite Tracker: ultra-compact and ideal for monitoring the location of vehicles and boats, the SmartOne Solar is just 102g so is lightweight as well. With global coverage and multiple reporting times, the SmartOne C can report location data at one minute intervals from 35 minutes to 45 days. Subscriptions start from £12.50, and this dust and water-resistant tracker comes with integrated Theft Recovery and Geo Fencing abilities.
  • SPOT Trace Satellite Tracker: the ever-popular SPOT Trace tracker ensures motorbikes, jet skis, cars, and other valuable assets are where they should be at all times. Weighing just 87g, it comes with a built-in Dock Mode feature to track an asset primarily stored on water, perfect for boat or kayak owners and water enthusiasts. From $13 a month on the basic subscription, the SPOT Trace transmits your asset's GPS coordinates every 2.5, 5, 10, 30 or 60 minutes to an online mapping portal, which can be viewed from your smartphone or online.
  • SolarTrack Satellite Tracker: this solar-powered satellite tracker has longevity and efficiency on its side. Its battery is charged by the sun in a matter of hours and its antenna is built-in for an extra compact approach. Basic subscriptions are $25 a month, and these global satellite tracker solutions are extremely popular with people looking to track livestock or animals, due to the fact that they are small enough to be fitted to an animal’s ear tag.

inReach® GPS Tracker for Outdoor Adventures

Anyone venturing off-grid into the great outdoors, whether that’s for a camping trip, hike, hunt, mountain bike, or rock climb, would benefit from the globally-reaching inReach technology built-in to devices like a Garmin inReach Mini 2 or any Garmin handheld GPS tracker with an ‘I’ in its name.

An inReach GPS tracker allows the the user to view maps, mark waypoints, create routes, and track their progress in real-time. Detailed mapping software can also be enjoyed, as well as weather forecasts, and two-way messaging with those back home to reassure them that everything is okay.

For outdoor adventurers, we would strongly recommend the Garmin inReach Mini 2.

SPOT Gen4 Satellite Tracker for Outdoor Adventures

The SPOT Gen4 satellite tracker is the latest in the line of reliable and trusted SPOT satellite trackers. It allows users to keep in touch with friends and family and call for help nearly anywhere in the world. Improvements have been made to battery life and durability on the 4th generation model.

Users can tell the SPOT device to automatically send out tracking messages at pre-defined intervals. All track points will be sent to SPOT Mapping, an online mapping portal where you can create a public URL for contacts to monitor as you undertake your journey.

Motion-activated tracking means the device will only send out track points when you are moving, in order to preserve battery life.

SPOT Gen4 Tracking Frequencies:

  • 5 min tracking interval
  • 5 min tracking interval
  • 10 min tracking interval
  • 30 min tracking interval
