A personal GPS tracking device is a great piece of technology for many different types of people. From the lone security worker to the hiker, a personal GPS tracker provides a sense of security and safety to people in situations where they are alone. A good GPS tracker should have a variety of different features to keep people safe. These features include scheduled GPS positioning, geofencing capabilities, person-down alert, an emergency call button, and a long battery life. At Tracking the World, our personal PT-301 GPS tracker has all of these features and more! Check out more information about these features and how a tracker can be beneficial to you and your loved ones.

Scheduled GPS Position (with cell ID reporting)

A feature that every good personal GPS tracking device should have is scheduled GPS positions. This allows loved ones to track your location any time they need to by viewing the scheduled reports. The timing of the position reports is preset by the user. Also, the device has scheduled GPS position updates as well as cell ID reporting. The cell ID reporting makes the position even more accurate. In addition, the PT-301 personal GPS tracker has a position accuracy (CEP) of <2.5m autonomous and <2.0m SBAS. The device works on GSM frequencies 850/900/1800/1900 MHz. It also has the ability to do a real-time location query.

Geofencing Capabilities

You can think of a geofence as an invisible digital fence. GPS users can set a geofence boundary around the area they are supposed to be in. For example, a geofence could be a boundary around a neighborhood, a hiking area, a warehouse, etc. The idea is that if the person crosses over the boundary, there is an alert. This allows loved ones to make sure the person they are tracking is safe and has not wandered off somewhere that might put them in danger.

This is a very helpful feature for elderly family members. The device gives them freedom to do things like go on walks or visit a neighborhood friend, but if they go further than they should, family will be alerted. It is also helpful for those going on hiking or camping adventures. Loved ones can make sure their hiker doesn’t wander away from the trail/route they are supposed to be on. In addition, the PT-301 has the capability to support up to five internal geo-fence regions.

Person-Down Alert

The person-down alert is an extremely important feature for a personal GPS device to have. Using an internal 3-axis accelerometer and a motion detection feature, the PT-301 can determine if a person has fallen. In other words, this is another great feature for elderly people. Loved ones often worry about whether their family member has fallen within their home and is unable to get up and call for help. With this feature, you will be alerted as soon as the device detects a fall. In addition, the person-down alert is a good feature for those adventurous family members who enjoy hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, etc. These activities are fun – but don’t come without risks. The person-down alert will let you know if your loved one has fallen, meaning they could potentially be injured and need help.

Emergency Call Button

All personal GPS trackers should have an emergency call button. The purpose of this button is that a person can easily press it in case of an emergency to get help ASAP. The PT-301 device has one configurable emergency call button. In addition, it has 4 configurable speed dial buttons so that the user can call other preset numbers as well. The device also has an SOS button, which will sound an emergency alarm.

Long Battery Life

Another important GPS feature is battery life. It is crucial that a personal GPS tracker has a long battery life. What is the point of having a tracker that is always dying? The PT-301 uses an Li-ion 1000 mAh internal battery. Without reporting, the device has a standby time of 480 hours (that’s 20 days!) As a result, users won’t have to worry about having to charge it every day.
