TRACKER CARE

Your GPS trackers arrive with you all set up with active multi-roaming data SIMs already installed. In order for your tracking devices to relay information remotely to your mapping panel, they will need a pre-pay data package applied.

Topping up your GPS tracker tracking package is quick and easy, and you do this any time through our website. Your subscription is applied remotely once checkout is complete, so you do not have to wait for anything to be delivered.

Our Pre-Pay tracking packages all offer unlimited tracking data. You can choose from 1, 3, 6 or 12 Months Unlimited tracking for any Trackershop GPS trackers. 

This means that you have unlimited tracking data and the freedom to track movement at any interval that you like, whether this is every 60 minutes or every 5 seconds! 

If you added a PAYG plan to your tracker at the point of purchase this will be automatically set to begin on the day of arrival. 

Any time that you need to renew your PAYG plan you can do so on the Trackershop website here: 

https://www.trackershop-uk.com/gps-tracker-accessories/topup-credits.html

Simply choose the PAYG plan (1,3,6,12 Months) and type in the Tracker ID(s) that you need the credit to apply to into the provided box on the product page. 

  • Proceed to checkout and complete your purchase.
  • Your PAYG subscription can be added automatically to your device (please allow 1-30 mins for this to process).
  • If you forget to enter your Tracker ID then your payment will still be processed, and your subscription will be entered manually by a member of the tech team. 
  • Please be aware that this can delay the time in which your PAYG plan is added to your device. Therefore, to avoid delays, it is always best to ensure that your Tracker ID is entered in the allocated box when purchasing. 

If your PAYG plan expires before re-subscribing.

  • Your tracker will stop tracking on this expiration date. 
  • There will be no tracking or data recorded for any period when the tracker does not have a PAYG plan applied. 
  • You can top up your device before the renewal date, and the new credit plan will continue automatically from the expiry date with no gaps in your tracking.

If you do not need to renew your data plan immediately when it expires, you can top up your tracker again when you next need to.

  • Please be aware that your SIM may be deactivated by the SIM providers after 3 months of inactivity. 
  • If this is the case, and you need to use your tracker again, you will need to contact Trackershop for your SIM to be reinstated.
For battery powered Trackershop devices. If your tracker is going to be inactive for an extended period of time please ensure that you switch it on and charge it full at least every 2-3 months. Your tracker is powered by a lithium battery, so will need consistent use to avoid the battery strength depleting.
All of your trackers can be monitored from the same mapping panel. Log in to one account and see all of your tracking devices at the same time.  If you need trackers separated on to individual/multiple accounts please email info@trackershop-uk.com, with a list of your request. 
For battery operated GPS trackers please ensure that you always use the charger provided with your device to charge the battery.  Using the wrong charger can cause damage to both the charging port and/or battery. Using the wrong charger will void the warranty on your product.
