CAN I PURCHASE JUST POSITION CREDITS AND/OR SMS CREDITS?
For those who do not necessarily need to monitor regular behaviour, journeys and locations of their vehicles or assets, you can opt to purchase a bundle of 3000 position credits. You can also buy 150 or 300 SMS credits whenever needed.
This is particularly beneficial for those who are using their tracking device predominantly for security and may keep their vehicle/asset in storage for long periods.
It’s worth noting that, although your position credits are likely to stretch long term under these circumstances, there will be no exact formula as to how long your credits will last.
Your GPS tracker will automatically ‘Sleep’ whilst it is not sensing movement. Whilst in ‘Sleep’ mode your device will not be using credits.
However, these devices are based around security and real time tracking, so your tracker will always be ready to wake up and report its status if it senses small movements or overhead satellite triangulation.
You will see that your GPS tracker will wake up at non-regular intervals, report its status, and then if no further movement is detected, return to ‘Sleeping’.
This is a positive aspect as it
1) indicates that your device is detecting movement and also semi-reguarly updating you with its status.
2) Ready to instantly begin tracking should someone steal your asset.
