GPS Trackers For Personal Use

Personal Use GPS Trackers

GPS trackers provide so much more than navigation these days. Whether you have a teen driver or you want to make sure your vehicle isn’t stolen, GPS trackers are the solution you are looking for. We offer a couple different solutions for GPS tracking for personal use and our devices come with a 2 year warranty. We have partnered with all Major mobile carriers in the U.S. to ensure we don’t have data issues for our devices. It doesn’t matter where you are, small town or large, SATX Technologies has got you covered!

Magnetic GPS Tracker

Device: SATX2041

Magnetic GPS Trackers are primarily used by Private Investigators or by construction/industrial companies working offsite. These devices come with a really strong magnet for hiding the device under the vehicle. These devices can also be placed inside the trunk or on any part of the vehicle on the inside. Our devices have a rating of IP 65 for water resistance. We do offer a special upgraded case that has the highest rating of IP67 which would protect from Able to protect against Immersion up to 1 m. Magnetic trackers typically have a longer battery life than other devices. We offer 10,000 mAh for a standard battery which gives consumers up to 120-150 days on standby when put in a low use state.

The device itself goes to sleep on its own, it simply wakes up through vibration and can be queried when needed for location. If you needed something convert, easy to use in a hurry, and a device that can be changed from asset to asset, the magnetic GPS tracker is for you.

OBD - On Board Diagnostics Device (OBD GPS Tracker)

Device: SATX2041

This tracker plugs into your OBD port for power while also sending data to our GPS servers through a small antenna that is built into the device. When the device does not have direct power from the port, it has a small standby battery that can provide the last position before the device is powered off.  It can also provide useful information such as:

  • Speeding
  • Location (Real Time)
  • Geofencing (Alerts when outside or inside a designated area)
  • Trip Routes
  • Trip History
  • Maintenance Alerts

OBD devices can be installed in the port but also can be installed the port using a splitter to keep the port facing the driver open for use. Typically OBD ports are used for mechanics to run diagnostic tests. Our devices do not communicate with car’s computer whatsoever nor will it void a warranty. The only thing the OBD port is used for in our GPS trackers is power. While some GPS trackers have a wide variety of sensors that can be read from the OBD port, our devices are simple and use GPS data to deliver information about location, speed, and miles driven.

In Dash GPS Tracker

Model: SATX2042

The In Dash GPS Tracker is great for long term and covert. Basically this small device will use power from your car through a wiring harness. In Dash trackers can be taped, zip tied, or fixed to anything inside your dashboard. Although removing the dash could be a tedious task, the device is so well hidden it is almost impossible to detect. While OBD’s and Magnetic trackers sometimes can be detected, unless someone is ripping out the dashboard this device is safe from detection. When the device does not have direct power from the port, it has a small standby battery that can provide the last position before the device is powered off. In Dash devices can provide the same information OBD devices can:

  • Speeding
  • Location (Real Time)
  • Geofencing (Alerts when outside or inside a designated area)
  • Trip Routes
  • Trip History
  • Maintenance Alerts

Pet or Personal Trackers


With so many personal trackers on the market today, be wary when it comes to pet or personal trackers. While some offer a lot of great things, almost all of them lack connectivity. Some sync by bluetooth, some require a wifi connection, some sync to your phone. If you sync by bluetooth, you need to be near the object. If you need a wifi connection then most likely you have to be within a close range and your object isn’t very far from you to begin with.
Don’t fooled by no service plans or cheap devices. All GPS trackers that can provide some sort of data with a location will require connectivity by mobile or satellite communications.

 

Our pet or personal trackers ensure your loved ones can be tracked when lost. Simply ensure the device is charged when needed and your device can be tracked using our mobile app or from your PC. Simple and lightweight, these powerful devices can give you 5 meter accuracy. It can also provide you with routes, times, and real time location via Google maps with a street view overlay. Whether you have a small child, pet, or elderly parent, our devices work hard when they are needed the most to bring back your loved ones.

Why Do Devices Require Subscriptions?

Devices are linked with a GPS satellite, which can be used by anyone, however to show it on a meaningful map and other interesting data you have to have a data connection. Some devices and companies use CDMA devices, mobile providers, or purchase satellite airtime. Devices hit cell towers with signal, they send what they need to, and in return you get to see this on a map interface on a smartphone or PC. Like the data on your phone, this cost money and in turn is charged back to you. On top of data charges, there are sim cards, activations, and also sms messaging. Throw in a couple support personnel, monthly subscriptions are necessary to sustain supporting our devices.
