Although the SmallTrack is a smaller unit, that doesn’t mean that it lacks in toughness. This global tracking device boasts an Ingress Protection Rating of IP67 against water and dust. It can withstand being submerged in up to a meter of water for 30 minutes and still be in working order.


The SmallTrack can also be customized to fit your specific needs. Whether you are searching for an application that monitors external user-supplied sensors or custom geofencing, the SmallTrack can do it all with the right customizations.

Internal Backup Battery

The SmallTrack can use 6–42V DC or USB vehicle power. However, in the event that you do not have access to a vehicle power, the SmallTrack can run off it’s internal backup battery. This global tracking device can send 1 SBD report every 10 minutes for up to a week on it’s backup battery. 

Switches Automatically Between Antennas

The SmallTrack was designed to manually or automatically switch between external and internal antennas. This means that if a vehicle accidentally rolls or one antenna fails, the device can automatically switch to an alternative antenna to ensure continuous monitoring. 

Manual Alert Buttons

While the SmalTrack does have automatic alert capabilities, it is also equipped with two manual alert buttons. These buttons can be used for check-ins from employees to ensure their safety or, if necessary, can be utilized to send an SOS emergency notification.
