How easy is the blackop tracker to use?
Very easy! There is No computer needed to operate this tracker, and everything is remotely controlled from your Android or iPhone smartphone. Whenever you wish to know the trackers current location simply send a coded text message to the tracker. Depending on the code you send will determine if you receive a readable street name & postcode or a URL which opens a full colour map.
Do I have to download any software to read the location?
No. Just use your mobile phone to send / receive standard messages.
How long do I have to wait for a location to my phone?
This really depends on the performance of the SIM network. A really good signal and the SMS will be sent back to your phone within approx 20-30 seconds. A relatively poor SIM network or a lull in signal strength will result in a much slower SMS reply. If the SIM network and the trackers GSM signals are both at optimised conditions, you will receive back an SMS location almost immediately and with exceptional accurately.
Is the blackop tracking device weatherproof?
Yes. The tracker is compliant to IPX7 level which means it can withstand harsh weather conditions and accidental drop in water levels to one (1) meter for approx 30 minutes.
When do I know when to recharge the blackop tracker?
Each time you request the tracker location the SMS message will display the current battery level, however, you can also activate the Low Battery notification so you are informed whenever the battery level drops to 20% or lower. At this stage you know its time to obtain the tracker and recharge it again.
Is the blackop tracker magnetic?
Yes. The underside of the tracking device is strongly magnetic for convenient deployment to metal areas of your vehicle, trailer, motorbike, caravan etc. It can also be deployed inside due to its small dimensions rather than outside.Can I attach to a smaller vehicle?
How much are the running costs to use the blackop tracker?
Each time you send a text message from your Android or iPhone device to the tracker, the SIM network will deduct the cost of an SMS message when it sends back a reply. This cost is 10p. As an example: if you request one (1) location every hour for 10 hours it will cost £1.00. It is highly recommend to use a SIM card which provides lots of text messages, or even unlimited text messages for a low monthly fee - and these can usually be obtained for £10 per month which offers great value.
Can the blackop tracker be used overseas?
Yes. The modern fitted inside the tracker uses a quad band modem for worldwide operation in any country. We advise you use a SIM card representative of the country in which the tracker is being used.
