BOAT TRACKING & MARINE TRACKING GPS WITH ARGOTRAK
GPS Tracking & Monitoring
Over the past few years, there has been a drastic increase in boat theft making the importance of marine tracking devices essential. With GPS tracking and monitoring systems from ArgoTrak, you can finally have peace of mind knowing that your boat is safe and secure. In general, such devices will give watercraft owners a way to safely and effectively protect their investment.
Additionally, with the right waterproof GPS onboard, you’ll be able to gain control of your boat anytime, anywhere. You can make the most of your time on the water, enjoy the journey and be confident that you’ll get to where you’re going, whenever and wherever you want.
When it comes to safety, every second on the water matters. If your rental boat is late, or worse, gets lost, you won’t have any idea of when it will arrive. A GPS service not only gives you a map of the boat’s location but has the capability to predict its arrival time with pinpoint accuracy. This helps you make better decisions in the management of your boat’s loading and unloading equipment. Because boat tracking is easier, you’ll be able to deliver better service to your customers.
What Is Boat Tracking or Marine Tracking via GPS?
Marine GPS tracking allows you to accurately locate your boat, jet ski, or any marine vessels in real-time. The system uses satellite signals to determine its position and then broadcasts that information to a base station. It receives data from the external receiver and then relays it to your phone or other devices for display.
By using a maritime GPS like ArgoTrak Marine, you can see your boat’s position on a map and track its movements and location at all times. The system also provides information about how fast the vessel is moving, geofencing of off limit areas, and buzzer on board for passenger notifications of bad weather or hazardous conditions. Marine GPS tracking has many applications in rental boating for both the consumer and owner of the boat.
Marine Tracking With GPS On Your Vessel
Buying a GPS for your boat is an investment you won’t regret. Fog, mechanical failure, and darkness can keep a boat out longer than expected, but with a GPS at hand, the odds of a safe return to port increase dramatically.
Enhanced Safety and Security in Marine Navigation
With enhanced accuracy and the option for real-time monitoring, marine navigation systems deliver peace of mind to the operator and the vessel as a whole. However, if in case any unforeseen accident happens, a GPS gives data on the geographic coordinates of the vessel and enables fast rescue operations to save lives. It ensures that it is always possible to locate a ship — even in the very moment of distress.
Provides Incident Proof and Liability
GPS tracking systems are the best solution for keeping your business free of liability. It’s because it saves crucial information from your vessel. For instance, if you get into an accident, you will be able to prove who is at fault. If any part denies an allegation, you can use the GPS data to retrieve the truth. That’s how useful ArgoTrak GPS is! It records movements and permits you to prove your case.
Vessel Insurance and Safety
With GPS tracking, you’ll see things happen in real-time. You’ll have data history showing everywhere the vessel has been since it was installed. You’ll have proof that the vessel was being operated within manufacturer specifications and industry norms. You’ll have every bit of information you need to recover your vessel or limit your liability if it is found to be stolen.
Alerts on Geofencing
Geofencing is an additional feature within our system that allows you to set a designated area where the boats should not go beyond. You can limit where your boat operates. Control zones allow you to detect when a location is breached, allowing you to act in the event of theft or serious damage. It also lets you know when your boat went out on your set parameters.
Save On Operational Costs with ArgoTrak
A good way to reduce downtime is by using a GPS tracking system. By getting real-time updates on the location of your crafts, you can respond more efficiently to customer queries about your vessels whereabouts. You can also minimize fuel consumption by allocating machines in optimal locations.
Besides, an ArgoTrak installed on your boat provides clues to your boat’s location in case it goes missing. They make it easy for you to recover your boat should theft occur. This proves vital, especially when your boats are expensive, or carrying a costly cargo. Moreover, if the company’s risk of loss and downtime due to inconveniences is reduced, it results in lower insurance costs.
Finally, when your vessel has GPS, it serves as an alert tool when it’s time for maintenance. This is a function of keeping track of the ship’s travel distance. This can be customized to automatically notify you when it’s time to take it for routine maintenance. This way, you don’t forget the routine maintenance requirement. Thus, minimizing the constant wear and tear of your machine.
How Do Boat Tracking Systems Work?
GPS systems play a vital role in marine navigation. They offer important information about your boat’s location using satellites which can be relayed to the authorities for assistance when necessary. Keeping track of your speed and destination, they help them know if there are any problems on board.
Our ArgoTrak Marine provides a valuable tool for the modern mariner. It can be hidden in many areas of the boat, so it won’t take away from its appearance. However, this will not affect the performance of the system. The system can even be installed while on the water.
The Features of the ArgoTrak GPS System
Real-time GPS Location
Our GPS tracking devices are available for all kinds of vessels and provides the most accurate location information possible. When boaters need emergency assistance, you’ll be able to quickly guide them back to shore using real-time data.
This enables you to set up areas that vessels are authorized to operate, as well as areas in which they are prohibited or should not enter. If the vessel manuevers outside the designated area, you will be notified instantly.
Bilge Failure Warning
Our GPS tracker can alert you if your bilge is getting overfilled so that you can address any issues as soon as possible and minimize any damage.
Bad Weather Alerts
Weather notifications enabled on the app will help keep anyone safe since they can now receive updates about severe weather or small craft advisories and take necessary precautions.
With its self-tracking feature, this GPS monitoring system eliminates the need for manual activation. It continuously tracks location, speed, and other important data at intervals while the boat is on the water.
Smart Alerting System
The system is excellent at letting you know when your boat has been moved. If it is moved more than 400 meters away from where it was originally, a text message is sent to your phone. You can customize the distance parameters to meet your needs.
The GPS also allows you to set the desired speed limit by yourself. As soon as there is any speed limit violation, the system will send an alert via text or email on your phone, tablet or mobile device.
Common Marine GPS System FAQs
What is ArgoTrak Marine?
The ArgoTrak Marine is a GPS monitoring system that can be outfitted and installed on any vessel or fleet you need to safeguard. This system will perform all the functions and more of your navigation or communication, with the added benefit of monitoring your vessel from anywhere in the world via satellite.
Does it need a network signal to work?
It doesn’t necessarily need data network signals to work because it relies on satellite signals. This makes it good for maritime vessels traveling far distances. You may need data coverage on your mobile device to receive notifications, but the device will continue recording everything and relay it back to users when they are back in their coverage area.
Is ArgoTrak different from a chart plotter?
They are similar, but there is a difference in their main purpose. The main role of a GPS receiver is to use orbiting satellites to pinpoint location. With the ArgoTrak UI, you will see your boat’s location on a Google map. A chartplotter has integrated GPS that overlays, not only locational information onto a digital map, but can be integrated with other marine electronics (such as autopiolot and radar) to create a whole marine navigation system.
Can your GPS device withstand harsh weather conditions?
Our systems are built to outlast the toughest conditions and are tested for extreme temperatures, weather, vibrations, and other severe conditions.
