What's in the box?

contents of boxThe World Tracker SMS is accompanied by

- a second battery,

- a mains charger,

- a car charger with very long connecting cable,

- a magnetic battery box,

- the same fancy suction-cup-soap-box holder like for the Data Logger.

As you can guess from these accessories the WorldTracker SMS is expected to be (semi) permanently installed in the car that should be tracked. Preferably hard wired into the car's power system, yet somewhere where the receiver has a chance to pick up a reliable GPS signal. The receiver uses a state of the art SiRF III chipset which obviously helps a lot to get a fix and hold on to it.

If you run the receiver on batteries you have about 24 hrs with the standard battery, and about four days with the additional quad AA battery pack (the one with the round magnet).

It can be used for covert tracking (without the target knowing about it) but also for consented tracking when the tracked person actually has an interest in being locateable. And for that scenario a second battery may come in handy.

Reliable, Accurate, and Affordable.
WorldTracker SMS is a completely self-contained GPS Tracking device small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. When placed with vehicles, packages or people, the WorldTracker SMS provides a whole new level of security and peace of mind. By utilizing the global GSM/SMS text messaging network, the Tri-Band WorldTracker SMS provides global real-time tracking capabilities.

Extended Life "Hibernator" Battery Case ( Accessory)
Up to one full month of unattended automatic, historical, and "on demand" GPS real time tracking now possible with our waterproof, motion activated, magnetic mount "hibernator" case. At only 6 1/2 x 4 x 1 3/4 inches, the unit operates on 8 "AA" standard alkaline batteries. Battery life can be maximized by using lithium batteries. After 5 minutes of inactivity, case automatically shuts down, saving battery power and cellular costs until the vehicle begins moving again.

What is SiRF Star III chipset?

[SiRF star III] We have had a few users asking What is the SiRF Star III chipset, and why is it so important? Well, the SiRF Star III chipset is a pretty big innovation in the GPS world, as it is a dramatically better performance for getting a GPS signal from satellites and getting you a location on your GPS. The 3 key advantages of the SiRF star III chipset are 1) Faster fix times, 2) High sensitivity for better locking of satellite signals in tough areas like under dense foliage or in urban canyons of sky scrapers, and 3) Low power drain for longer battery life.

SiRF star III Chipset Faster Fix Times
When a GPS is turned on, it needs to figure out where it is by pulling down signals from several satellites before it can triangulate and figure out where you are. Sometimes this can be faster if the GPS has been recently used because they can quickly figure out that they "We were just here yesterday, and so things look the same, so I must be in the same place." These are called "warm starts" when they have a head start on their position. Cold starts on the other hand take a lot longer because the GPS can't rely on where it recently was to help figure out where it is now - this could happen if you turn the GPS on a few hundred miles from where it last was on, or if it's been off for a long time. The SiRF star III chipset has a fast time to fix on your location because it has more correlators than other chipsets and so it can figure out where you are faster.

SiRF star III Chipset High Sensitivity
The SiRF star III chipset is reportedly better at holding a signal in low signal areas, like under dense tree cover or where you can�t see a lot of the sky clearly, like when you are traveling in a downtown area where there are a lot of sky scrapers. SiRF cites that the chipset can track signals down to -159 dBm, and has 200,000 correlators, which by comparison some other chipsets had only a few thousand. Garmin recently upgraded their ForeRunner line to include a couple of improvements to enhance the reception because the original models were sometimes losing satellite reception in these tough areas. The Forerunner 201 series had the satellite receiver along the forearm that didn�t always face the sky when you were using it � like when you were running. The new Forerunner has the GPS satellite receiver mounted on the wrist bone so that in a normal running stance the antenna faces the sky. They also upgraded to the SiRF star III chipset in the model that will help with this issue.

SiRF star III Chipset Longer Battery Life
The SiRF star III chipset is also very efficient, which means low power draw and longer battery life for the unit it is in. Many of the models that are using the SiRF star III chipset are mobile devices that are turning in great battery life times as a result of the lower power draw of the SiRF star III chipset.

Faster Fix Times, Pinpoint Accuracy
When turned on, the WorldTracker SMS needs to figure out where it is by connecting the GPS satellites and triangulating an exact location to within 3 meters.

WorldTracker SMS Acquisition Times:
- Hot Typically < 6sec Time To First Fix (TTFF)
- Warm Typically < 35sec TTFF
- Cold Typically < 45sec TTFF

High Sensitivity, Unmatched Dependability
The SiRF star III chipset is better at holding a signal in low signal areas such as traveling in a downtown area where there are a lot of sky scrapers or under dense tree cover. The chipset can track signals down to -159 dBm, and has 200,000 correlators, and most other chipsets have only a few thousand.

Longer Battery Life

The SiRF star III chipset is also very efficient, which means low power draw and longer battery life. Using an external battery case, you can extended the life of the WorldTracker SMS by as much as 30 days.
