Project Description

Plug & play GPS vehicle tracking device

The GPS Vehicle Tracker is especially designed for the safety and well-being of those in the community who have occasional memory loss and are still driving.

Main features

How does it work?

The GPS Vehicle Tracker enables you to locate the car that it is plugged into.  If you are worried the driver may have become lost, you will be able to locate them quickly, and arrange help to get both the driver and car back home safely.

Because the GPS Vehicle Tracker is plugged into the car’s OBDII port, it will only draw power from the car’s battery when the engine is running.  It will at regular intervals send data to the tracking platform which in turn can be monitored via the MS03 App or Main platform.  The GPS Vehicle tracker DOES NOT transmit engine data.

Track the device via App or PC

The MS03 App is available for both iOS and Android smart phones.  This enables the emergency contact to remotely manage the Plug & Play Vehicle tracker via the App or the main platform on your PC or laptop.

At Marmic Meditrak we connect you to the MS03 platform and App by way of an annual access subscription.  For a nominal cost, you have access to a great range of features and functions normally only available on much more expensive GPS tracking devices.

Mobile Network Coverage

Always check with your service provider that you will have coverage in the location you plan to use the device.  All GPS units are limited by the mobile phone coverage and can experience problems if surrounded by too many high-rise buildings or electrical interference.  No GPS is 100% fail proof.  The Plug & Play GPS Vehicle tracker should only be used as a tool to aid in finding the location of someone in need of help.  The overall responsibility for the safety of the person using the GPS Vehicle Tracker is that of the emergency contact/caregiver.

Who is it suited to?

  • People who due to age or disability can benefit from family knowing where they and their vehicle are at any time.
  • Those that may still drive, but have early signs of Dementia.
  • People who just want to have another level of security for their car.
  • Businesses that run a small fleet of vehicles.
  • Hire car companies.

How is it installed?

As mentioned in the introduction, the GPS Vehicle Tracker is a genuine Plug & Play device.  Prior to us sending it out to you, we pre-programme and log the device onto the MS03 main tracking platform.  We also install the Telstra SIM.

Once you receive the device all you need to do is to activate the SIM per the instructions that we send out to you.  After this, just take the GPS Vehicle Tracker out to the vehicle that you will put it in and locate the OBD port.  Generally located close to the steering column and just under the edge of the dash.  If unsure, check your vehicles manual.  Go ahead and plug in the device and ensure it is turned on.  Now you should be able to log onto the App and locate your device and car.

Recommended minimum requirements

Because the Plug & Play GPS Vehicle tracker is best used in conjunction with a smart mobile phone, it is recommended that you make a personal assessment whether or not your model phone is in fact able to use a modern style of Application.  If you have any doubts, check with your Telstra service provider and take a look at the Meitrack Group MS03 App available on the App Store of your phone.  You will also need an up to date computer and software in order to make the most of the features.

We recommend you only use Telstra network due to the greater coverage across Australia.  It is also recommended that you use the following: SIM only plan including talk time (as required), 100Mb and 50+ SMS.

Frequently Asked Questions

Once the device has been programmed and set up, it is able to get a “fix” on its location via satellites.  This position is then relayed via the SIM (connected to a mobile network) to your phone.  The smart phone in turn displays this in Google Maps.  The owner of the mobile phone is then able to see clearly where the safety device is located.
No. Because the tracker is plugged into the car’s OBD port, it will draw power whenever the car is running. The only exception to this may be if you have the vehicle sitting for several months without it being used. In this case, it would pay to remove the tracker and give it a top up by connecting it to a USB charger for several hours before replacing it in your car.
