Whether you operate a boat rental service, or just own a single vessel for personal use. Being able to monitor and keep track of your investment is essential. Boats can be very difficult to track down once taken, and often times have a low recovery rate as a result. One way to better monitor your boat’s location and greatly reduce the risk of theft, is by installing a GPS tracker onto the vehicle.
Why GPS Trackers?
In addition to being a great deterrent of theft, a GPS tracker placed directly on your boat offers the peace of mind of knowing where is it located on a map display in real time. As the device moves and updates its location, those data points would be recorded directly on a map display visible through either our mobile app, or a web browser. Using a device like the Mobile 200 or the Protect Plus, and the GPS tracking service through Logistimatics, you would have access to those features for a very low monthly service price.
An owner of a boat rental agency has been having issues with theft of his rental vehicles on major holiday weekends. The volume of customers makes tracking each vehicle a near impossible task throughout the day. And oftentimes the boat would be out of the water and taken before it was noticed to be missing. The owner decided to install GPS trackers onto his rentals and set up a GPS perimeter around the waterway, to be notified immediately if any tracker exits the pre-defined zone. Within weeks, the owner was able to not only cut down on thefts, but better monitor the locations and possible improper use of the rentals as well.
