Suntrac - Solar powered GPS tracker

Orion Technology from Taiwan has a few GPS tracking modules. Most of them are pretty basic; GPS, GSM enabled devices which are usually placed somewhere under the hood - use your car’s battery and have antenna connections for placing the receivers somewhere outside. However one of them stood out from the rest. Called Suntrac - this device is a solar powered GPS tracker which could be very useful where 12V power is not available. This could be your trailer, boat, caravan, or more industrial stuff such as shipping containers.

Suntrac is an all in one waterproof tracking device that contains GPS and GSM modules that can work around the world ( Tri-Band GSM / GPRS modules ( 850 / 1800 / 1900 and 900 / 1800 / 1900 ). And when cellular network signals are not available you can rely on Suntrac to record the position onto its 4MB internal memory.

It measures 320x280x41mm and weighs about 2 kgs. It is not the most discrete and portable thing out there but sometimes it is the only solution.

We haven’t seen Orion’s product anywhere in the States side yet but if you have do let us know.
