How Extensive Is PrimeTrack’s Tracking Coverage?
Our tracking devices work with the local GSM SIM modules for the respective countries, in Nigeria principally with the Glo & MTN networks. This means that the coverage is extensive. In the event that your vehicle enters an area where there is no GSM coverage the unit stores all the GPS positions in memory and automatically uploads this info once the vehicle re-enters a coverage area. Our units have the ability to store up to 50,000 positions and events, which equates to several years of tracking information.
Can PrimeTrack Devices Be Fitted To Any Make Of Vehicle?
A GPS tracker can be fitted into any vehicle, passenger or commercial. It can be fitted into anything from a light motor vehicle to a heavy goods vehicle, or a trailer. The unit can even be fitted to things like motorcycles, jet-ski’s, ATV’s and many other assets that may need to be tracked.

Does the Tracker Send Out Any SMS or Email Alerts?
Our trackers are ‘intelligent’.

For security reasons, we disable the SMS function to prevent unauthorised persons from accessing clients tracking information. Emails are much more secure
