Mini SMS Personal Tracker; with GSM + GPS + WiFi Location Tracking

The Mini Bolt SMS Tracker combines small size with powerful performance and is a sure-fire winner for any customer looking for a reliable 'on-demand pay-as-you-go' tracking device without heavy running costs.  This tiny robust tracking device has a hard exterior shell that is waterproof to IPX5 compliance and can be used either as a personal tracker for the elderly or children (with panic button), or can be placed inside small parcels or within a vehicle, motorbike, pedal bike etc for accurate street-level tracking.


The Bolt Tracker preliminary uses GSM and GPS satellites to obtain a street-level location but also uses WiFi signals to provide a location when the tracker is indoors or has a poor GPS satellite reception.  WiFi tracking technology is a fantastic addition and works automatically without any setup - just track straight out of the box!


A huge advantage to using SMS trackers is no computer is required.  From anywhere and at any time you can obtain the Bolt's current location either as a readable street name and postcode, or view it on a colour map - directly on your mobile phone.  And for such a small size the tracker has a battery of approx 3.5 days (per charge).


The Bolt Tracker has a small push button that sends an SOS text message to a relative of your choosing in the event you are in trouble.  This function can be enabled or disabled by sending a coded SMS to the tracker but is a great little feature to enable for elderly relatives or school children to use as a keep safe.

How do I get the Bolt trackers location to my mobile phone?

There are two (2) different coded SMS messages you can send to the tracker from your mobile phone.  Depending on the code in the SMS message will determine how the location is sent to you.

  • Get a URL which opens a colour map to pinch and zoom on surrounding streets
  • Get a readable street name and postcode
The Bolt tracker uses in-built WiFi - what does that mean?

In addition to GSM and GPS satellite tracking, the Bolt tracker can also obtain a location by scanning for nearby WiFi router signals to obtain a location from Google's database.  This provides the ability to obtain a location to within approx 50 meters even when the tracker is indoors!  This is very clever tracking and just works automatically.

Is the tracker waterproof?

Yes.  The tracker is compliant to IPX5 which will withstand normal weather conditions and light water spray.

My parent has alzheimer's - is this tracker suitable?

Yes.  It makes an excellent personal tracker for the elderly or children due to its very small size.  It can be carried in a pocket or a bag and the tracker can also be inserted into the supplied silicone case and threaded onto a belt.  The tracker has a button which can be pressed to send a text message SOS alert to your mobile phone so you can instantly begin tracking for peace of mind.

What about vehicle tracking or tracking my pedal bike?

Yes.  The bolt tracker is perfect for locating many assets because it is not magnetic it can be placed inside a small parcel, vehicle, motorbike, boat, car trailer, caravan or under the seat of a push bike.

Do I need a computer to operate the Bolt tracker?

No computer.  You only need a mobile phone that can send and receive text messages and open a web page.  The Bolt tracker is controlled entirely from your smartphone for convenience.

What is the battery life before a recharge is needed?

Due to the small size, the Bolt tracker can hold its power for approx 3.5 days. It should be noted that the overall battery performance (per charge) depends on how many times you request the trackers location each day because this is when battery juice is used more than in standby.

What is the cost to receive each tracking location?

Every time you request the Bolts location, the network SIM card will deduct the cost of an SMS message (approx 10p).  To get the best value we recommend inserting a SIM card which offers lots of text messages or unlimited text messages for a fixed monthly fee.  There are many good deals for text messages on the market for example: The Vodafone network have 'Freedom Freebie' which gives unlimited text messages for just £10 per month.

Can I use the Bolt tracker in a different country?
