How Tramigo Tracker Works

Tramigo has an integrated GPS receiver and communicates with mobile phones over the GSM network via SMS. Tramigo matches GPS coordinates to the closest local landmark and sends its location in relation to that landmark, thus allowing the user to understand the message even without maps.

Just insert a SIM card and your Tramigo is ready to be used immediately! You can use a pre-paid or post-paid SIM and you even get a low balance warning if running out of air time. Make sure the SIM has roaming in all the territories you want to take it to. Alternatively, you can change the SIM when traveling as no data is stored in it so swapping is easy.

Tramigo communicates through SMS with any phone model and with any brand of phone. No need to load any software, just start sending SMS messages. It is easy: sending an SMS "FIND" will return you the current location, speed and direction of the asset. You can see the asset's location on Google Earth satellite maps too!

Tramigo tracking devices come pre-installed with thousands of local landmarks for your country. Tramigo Landmark data is exclusive to Tramigo and is available for over 220 countries and regions.

Up to 10 people can track the unit, each with an individual profile. You can give limited access depending on how much you trust them.
