All Gator GPS Tracking Systems require a sim card so they can communicate with the tracking server. The sim card requires its own unique identification number. We recommend using a M2M sim card or mobile sim card. The sim card must have credit available at all times to allow the tracking server to communicate with it.
You can access the tracking portal on computers, tablets and smartphones, any device with internet access and a web browser. Our tracking portal is web based and has an easy to use smartphone and tablet interface. The portal automatically detects the device being uses and will display the appropriate interface. Simply visit gator.net.au on the web browser on your smartphone or tablet, log into the portal and you will be able to access the tracking system. By using a web based system, access to the portal is much more reliable compared to an app, especially when smartphone companies carry out Operating System updates.
