iTraq is a cellular tracking device - the world’s first global location device that can be found anywhere. iTraq determines its location using cellular towers allowing iTraq to be located anywhere in the world where cellular service exists.
Since iTraq determines its location using cellular towers, its radius extends as far and as wide as all cellular towers. This, in turn, allows you to attach iTraq to a bicycle or boat, place it in the pocket of your child, or even attach it to your baggage, and still be detected even if your baggage travelled to another country or continent.
Most other devices that work globally, like GPS technology, are known as very power intensive consumers of battery life. Even the most recent advances in battery life only allow a GPS device to work several days if not only hours.
iTraq uses Cell-ID technology and lets you adjust how often iTraq should report its location, from a few times in an hour to a few times in a day, and can work up to 3 years without the need to recharge a battery
iTraq is as small as a credit card, only slightly thicker – like 5 cards together. It can be placed in a glove compartment of the car or even hidden under the seat of your mountain bike. It can also be hung on the strap or stuck on a flat surface with an adhesive strip that is supplied with iTraq.
iTraq does not use GPS, but it does use a technology that scans cellular towers that are in proximity to determine its location. The more towers it sees, the more precisely iTraq can determine its location.
Proprietary software allows iTraq to stay in sleep mode most of the time – this helps to minimize energy consumption and achieve an amazing battery lifetime.
Depending on the schedule set by user, iTraq wakes up, determines its location by scanning cellular towers in range and transmits data to the server.
Then all the location information is displayed on your mobile phone or on the website.
