The SHOUT GSM can send a position report every 4 hours for up to 2 months (approximately 1,500 reports). This is due to it’s internal 1.95A-Hr Li-ion battery and ultra low power consumption electronics, that draw less than 35µA during sleep.
The Shout GSM Personal Tracker is a pocket sized, self-contained satellite based personal tracker and messenger designed to operate on global GSM networks when available, and the Iridium low-earth orbit satellite network when no GSM coverage is available, resulting in 100% global coverage. It offers two way SMS and email capability, GPS tracking functions and features internal Iridium, GSM and GPS antennas, micro-controller and a rechargeable lithium battery capable of transmitting hourly position reports every hour for up to two months on one charge (up to 1,500 tracking reports).
The Shout GSM has an onscreen keyboard operated by soft-touch keys allowing quick access to menus and ease of entering text. It is an invaluable travel companion and potential lifeline for outdoors enthusiasts, expeditioners, or anyone working in remote locations. Easy to carry, the Shout GSM weighs just 221 grams including batteries and fits in the palm of your hand. The Shout GSM provides a vital line of communication with friends and family when you want it, and emergency assistance when you need it.
The Shout GSM Personal Tracker offers the following features:
The Shout GSM Personal Tracker operates on the Iridium satellite network. This is the only commercial satellite network in the world to offer 100% truly global coverage, meaning the Shout GSM can allow you to have two-way SMS and email communications and transmit your GPS coordinates wherever you are in the world.
The Shout GSM operates on global GSM networks to provide low-cost and efficient transmissions. It is capable of automatically switching to the Iridium satellite network when no GSM network is detected.
The Shout GSM tracker is equipped with Location Based Services (LBS) enabling GPS positioning. The device is capable of transmitting its GPS coordinates from anywhere on the globe.
Dust & Water Resistant
The Shout GSM is designed to withstand the harshest weather conditions.
The Shout GSM is capable of sending and receiving short SMS and email messages from anywhere on the planet. You can either transmit customised messages written through the devices on-screen keyboard or configure canned (pre-defined) messages in short codes to save bandwidth instead of the entire message body. We recommend communicating with the device via email since not all global mobile network operators can process messages through the Iridium network.
The Check-in button is a simple feature which transmits a single message to reassure your family, friends, or colleagues that all is well, or that you have reached your destination. Your contacts will receive either a text with your message and coordinates, or an email featuring a Google Maps link to your location.
The Shout GSM satellite tracker is equipped with a programmable emergency button that activates critical, rapid response when you need it most. When pressed, the SOS button transmits your GPS coordinates and alerts your pre-specified contacts that you require assistance.
Using the two-way Iridium satellite constellation, the Shout GSM satellite tracker offers a ‘Follow-Me’ function. This enables you to ping the device, wherever it is located in the world, and instruct it to transmit its current GPS coordinates and status (device must be turned on with a satellite connection to enable this feature to function correctly).
Track Progress Function
With Track Progress enabled you can send out GPS tracking points from as little as every 30 seconds so that friends, family and colleagues can view your current and historic movements through a Google Earth mapping interface.
