3 Things To Look For In A Quality Boat Tracker

Buying a boat tracker is essential if you want to know where your boat or other watercraft is at all times. This is primarily useful if you're worried about finding your boat in case of theft, and as such, is almost always a very worthwhile purchase. That said, there are many models available on the market, and if you're looking to purchase one, you need to know what to look for. Here are three qualities that you should keep an eye out for in a quality boat tracker.

Inconspicuous Hardware

What good is a boat tracker in the event of a theft if the thieves who have stolen your boat can immediately find it and then discard it? That's why you'll want to find a boat tracker that can be hidden anywhere above the water line, be it in a small fiberglass compartment, at the helm, or somewhere else entirely. You may find that battery operated boat trackers are a bit more capable of blending into the background than their wired counterparts, but of course this comes with the trade-off of limited battery life. Finally, in the interest of being inconspicuous, you'll also want to find a boat tracker that does not need an external antenna to function.

Flexible Data Plans

As useful as boat trackers are, their operating costs can be quite high if you pick a data plan that isn't aligned with your boat usage. In other words, if you don't use your boat very frequently, there is probably little point in having your boat tracker report its position multiple times each day. Find a boat tracker retailer that will allow you to select a customized data plan (or at least one from a list of several options) so that you don't end up paying for data or other related features that you don't need, and only for the ones that you do. 

Reporting Frequency

If you do opt for a battery powered boat tracker, then make sure it is one that decreases its reporting frequency when it reaches low battery. In the worst case scenario, not having this feature may mean the difference between recovering your boat and losing it forever. You should also look for trackers with the ability to send you a notification remotely when the device is at low battery, so that you know to manually replace the batteries in the near future.
