Top Misconceptions about GPS Trackers


GPS tracking can be a subject that many have an opinion on. Many thoughts are long-held myths about what GPS trackers can and can't do. We've broken down the top myths about GPS trackers and what they can do for you.

1 GPS trackers are expensive.

Perhaps that was true in the early days of GPS trackers. However, as technology has become more common, this has decreased costs. The piece of mind of knowing where your precious pet or belongings are is worth the piece of mind. Many people are comparing the cost of Bluetooth trackers to GPS trackers, which are not the same. Bluetooth trackers can only track when in range of compatible devices, while good GPS trackers use a global network. The AirBolt GPS uses LTE-M & NB-IoT to be able to track almost anywhere in the world.

2. The monthly expenses are too high. This is not the case with all trackers. The AirBolt GPS is only a subscription fee that has no lock-in contracts. You can cancel whenever you want. However, we've also made our GPS with a handy "pause subscription", so you can pause your tracking subscription if you don't need it instead of the hassle of cancelling. You get all this for a low yearly subscription fee of only $100 USD.

3. The battery life isn't really worth it. Not all GPS trackers are created the same. While many trackers need to be recharged frequently or even daily, the AirBolt GPS can go up to a year on a single charge. When it is time to charge, use the USB-C cable.

4. Big Brother is tracking me. Many people are afraid that anyone can lock into their GPS and find them or their belongings. This is generally a misunderstanding of the technology. GPS is not designed to transmit signals. The network is intended to receive them. The only one that can access your AirBolt GPS is you through your secure AirBolt. Should you wish to share your AirBolt with your family, you can, but only through the AirBolt App. 5. GPS tracking is too hard to use. This myth probably comes from spy movies, with people having to type furiously to pinpoint a hero's location always in the nick of time.

The AirBolt GPS is ready to use after you open the box. Connect it to your AirBolt app, start your subscription and attach it to whatever you track. It couldn't be easier. Not all GPS trackers have been created the same. We've spent years developing one of the market's most efficient, lightweight and long-lasting GPS trackers.
