GPS Tracker Hire
Our GPS Tracking system is unparalleled in features and capabilities. It can be deployed to your event on it’s own, or used in conjunction with the RFID timing system. GPS Tracker technology has now advanced to the stage where trackers are no longer large bulky items, and manufacturing costs mean that we can hire GPS tracking devices to all of your participants for little more than the cost that other providers will charge for finish-line-only timing systems.
For single-day events we deploy our micro GPS trackers. These closely resemble a traditional RFID reusable chips, and can be attached to the same arm/ankle band.
The GPS chips are 100% waterproof, so perfectly suited to events with water sections; triathlons, kayak, sailing. They can be set to provide frequent location updates to 10 seconds intervals, or other longer intervals (i.e. every 60 seconds). Update frequency affects battery life, but even on 10 second updates you should expect around 24 hours life from the tracker.
If you need extended battery life, we can supply slightly heavier 80 gram trackers, where battery life is up to 1 week of use at typical frequency updates.
GPS Tracker Hire can be for as few as one device or hundreds of devices. Each tracker sends it’s data back to our own tracking platform where it is shown on a map. Our platform supports map types including Google road map, Satellite, and all variants of Ordnance Survey maps. Your event route is overlaid on the map, and checkpoint or transition areas are shown. Each participant is shown as a pin on the map, to which can be attached their profile photo. The current speed and movement status is shown. As a participant passes a control / checkpoint their split time is automatically recorded on the leader board.
Our tracking platform is hosted in the UK, with backup servers in The Netherlands and Germany. We have tracked events all over the world, of all types. Not restricted to events, we have tracked trips to Kilimanjaro, and personal cycling challenges across countries and continents.
