    • Real-time Accuracy + Exceptional Reliability: FULL quad-band transmission, versus inferior GPS trackers which operated on fewer bands. Exceptionally low-latency location updates with intervals as little as 60 seconds. Professional grade components operate continuously without susceptibility to signal interference.
    • Versatile and inconspicuous, the Amcrest GPS Tracker is barely larger than a matchbox, and resistant against weather effects like rain. Smart power design automatically sleeps or wakes the unit based on precise motion detection via ultra-sensitive 3-way accelerometer, so battery lasts up to 2 weeks on a single charge. *Case Sold Separately*
    • Receive customizable location updates and alerts about events such as high vehicle speed, the crossing of defined area boundaries, or low battery charge. Alerts can be delivered by text message or email, and tracking activity can be viewed on your PC, tablet, or phone (mobile browser compatibility limited) in real-time or as recorded footage. Uses an intuitive, user-friendly interface that beautifully integrates a rich color maps view.
    • No expensive contracts or activation fees: just a low $19.99 month-to-month service available for use whenever you need it. Online backup storage is included so you can keep tracking data safe against threats such as hard drive theft, damage or loss.
    • Amcrest GPS trackers are FCC certified, manufactured to the highest quality control standards, and warrantied for one full year when purchased from Amcrest Authorized Retailers. Along with our 1 Year Domestic Warranty, we also provide every Amcrest customer with free Lifetime Support.

    $129.99 purchase price and another $240 per year in service fees. So that first year is going to set you back $370.

    Good to have options. But good to watch the prices and service fees too.

    "$240 per year in service fees."

    Looks like you only activate it for the month you want to fly in.......

    I love my Flytrex Live 3G. Updates location every 500 miliseconds vice "every 60 seconds." Which means, of course, you can actually use it live instead of a dedicated app. And use of the server is free forever.
