The GPS tracker uses the so-called Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) and can start transmitting the position with the help of open WLANs nearby, so that GPS positioning only rarely needs to be activated. The device supports two services of these LPWANs: Firstly, the LoRa network (Longe Range WAN) and later also Sigfox. The advantage of the two networks is that they achieve a relatively large coverage and that the tracker is not dependent on cellular reception.
Control via the app
Different profiles can be set via the own app to further optimize the battery life. There are "school", "everyday life" and "intensive" to choose from. The tracker reports to everyone as soon as it registers movement. In school mode, the tracker sends a notification every 5 minutes as soon as it leaves a specified area. In everyday mode, the position is recorded every ten minutes, the battery then lasts up to eight months. In intensive mode, the position is recorded every minute and the battery lasts for two more weeks. The tracker mode can also be changed remotely if you want to be informed more frequently about the location.
The Roadie GPS tracker will first be launched in France in October and will also come to Germany later this year. The price is 99 euros including three years of free connections.
