Mounting Dimensions

Tracker with GPS Technology

No lock is 100-percent effective at preventing theft. Instead, protect your investment by knowing where your vehicle or equipment is at all times. This small GPS tracking device lets you discreetly track the location of your motorcycle, ATV, UTV, RV, trailer, car, boat, golf cart, farm equipment, pallet, cargo box, or basically any other item that it can be mounted on. The GPS battery lasts up to 3 months without needing to be recharged, which makes it possible to track an item that has no power source. When the battery gets low, simply remove the device and connect the attached wiring harness to a power source.


The Linxup online account and mobile app show you a map view of your vehicle or equipment on your smartphone, tablet, or computer. The app will also send you an alert if the vehicle or piece of equipment you're tracking is moving. As a result, you can have peace of mind, knowing that your equipment can be found if it does get stolen. The included tracking service runs on a 4G network for reliable transmission. The Linxup mobile app is compatible with iOS and Android, and it is free to download from iTunes and Google Play.


You can also purchase several Linxup devices to track a fleet of trailers, trucks, rental vehicles, or security vehicles, making it easier to manage your business. You can view multiple devices at the same time so that you always know where people are when you need them. And you can log data to see the amount of time your fleet spends traveling or on job sites. If you have a business fleet, you can track the time spent on each job to make invoicing customers easier.


Easy Tracking

Map View

The Linxup GPS device appears as a drop pin on Google Maps. This position will be accurate within 15' of the actual location of your vehicle or equipment. You can click on the drop pin to see how much battery power the GPS device has left, its current address, and the direction it is moving. The device's location is updated once per day when it is not moving. While in motion, the device will automatically accelerate the updates to every 10 minutes.


Google Maps gives you real-time traffic reports so that you can generate the quickest routes. You'll be able to dispatch the closest vehicle from your fleet to reach your customer faster, and you'll be able to provide an accurate ETA. In the map view, you can also add detailed information and notes about each vehicle or asset, including the serial number, license plate number, or vehicle identification number for quick reference in case you need to report your asset stolen.


Geofence to Better Manage Location of Asset

Geofence

You can set up a geofence, or virtual perimeter, around either your asset or a specified location. You decide who will receive the text or email alert if your asset crosses the perimeter, and you determine what type of breach will activate the alert. For example, you can be alerted if your vehicle enters a perimeter, exits a perimeter, or both. When a breach occurs, the date, time, and location of the tracking device will be timestamped and recorded. This information can also be used to clock an employee in and out from a job site.


You can customize the shape of your fence to reach all corners of a specific location, or you can set landmarks and frequently visited locations on your map. Several fences can be set up in different locations and viewed at the same time to manage your business or fleet. Each customer location can be set up as a landmark, which can help you choose the most efficient route for the day. The time spent at each landmark will be logged, which makes invoicing easy.


Non-Authorized Hours and Tampering Notifications

Get an alert if your vehicle is moving during non-authorized times, or if someone is tampering with the GPS device. Simply set up a time range that is not authorized for movement, such as after business hours or in between scheduled routes. An email or text notification will be sent if the vehicle begins to move during your preset unauthorized time frame. You can also set up notifications to get an alert immediately if someone is tampering with the device.


Data Collection and Logging

History Reports

Each trip generates a report that can be viewed by selecting a date range within the past 24 months. A trip begins when the ignition is turned on and ends when the ignition is turned off. When you select a date range to view a report of trips, a breadcrumb trail will show you each location your vehicle visited during each trip in the selected time frame. On this trail, you will also see a history of alerts including driving speeds, the length of time spent at each stop, total miles for each trip, and whether or not the trip was made during authorized hours. In a report of stops, all stops made by the vehicle will be displayed for the date range that you choose. The start time, stop time, location, and the amount of time spent at each stop are all logged.


Alerts and Notifications

Text Alerts

You are in charge of all email and text alerts, and you can customize them for different vehicles and groups. All alerts that are available in the web service can be sent by an email, a text, or both. You decide who gets the alert, and you can alter the alert sensitivity for each notification. For example, you can set immediate notifications for time-sensitive alerts, such as device tampering.


Maintenance History

Maintenance Alerts

Get notifications for routine maintenance that is due on your vehicle. Simply log the type of maintenance and the interval between services, and you will receive an alert when your next service is due. You can view a history of all maintenance and unexpected repairs that have been performed on your vehicle, or on a vehicle from your fleet, by selecting a date range and the vehicle that you wish to review.


Installation

The compact case on this GPS device can be wedged under your seat or into a tight spot that is hidden from view. The mounting holes allow you to attach this device onto your vehicle's frame, under your hood, behind the steering column, or onto a secure spot on your equipment.


Simple Wiring for Powered Assets

If you are using this device on a vehicle, boat, trailer, or other asset that runs on a 12-volt system, then you can easily connect the integrated wiring harness for power. Just mount the device in a place that makes it simple to run the power wire to your vehicle's battery or to your vehicle's ignition. The red and white wires on this device will either connect to the positive post on your battery or to the ignition wire. The black ground wire will then need to be attached to a bare spot on your vehicle's frame that is free from any rust or paint.


Rechargeable Battery for Non-Powered Assets

If you are installing the Linxup device on a non-powered asset, then you will want to install it with a fully charged battery. Simply click on the drop pin in Google Maps to monitor how much power the battery has left. A fully charged battery will last up to 3 months. To recharge the battery, remove the GPS device and connect the attached wiring harness to a 12-volt power source. The red and white wires can connect to the positive post on a 12V battery. The black ground wire will then need to be attached to bare metal that is free from any rust or paint.


Setting Up Your Account

Once you install the GPS device, you'll be ready to set up your online service. Each purchase includes step-by-step instructions on how to access the Linxup website, create a login for your account, and complete the activation process. Your 1 year of service will be activated when these steps are completed. When the included 1 year of service is up, you can continue your service with Linxup by choosing a rate plan in the billing section of your online account.

Review from a similar Linxup in Trailer GPS


Trailer got stolen in October. Alert Text notified me that my trailer might be on the move. IT WAS! tracked it to the first location where they tried to disable thew tracker by cutting the wiring to the tracker and hitting it with something busting the case. It stopped the real time tracking but the internal battery kept transmitting the location every 24 hours. Trailer was recovered by police with the major High Dollar items still inside. Allot was stolen, but the major stuff was recovered. Linxup replace the tracker at no cost to me. Highly recommend this product and the Linxup Company 601524

  • Will Linxup 300-AT3-S GPS Tracking Device Work on a 31 Foot Boat
    The Linxup # 300-AT3-S would work perfectly for a boat, even with a metal awning like what you mentioned. I've confirmed this with Linxup. If you click the provided link, you can see a product description video featuring the Linxup GPS Tracking Device.

  • Does GPS Tracking Device w/ 4G Service # 300-AT3-S Require Running to Ignition Wire
    The GPS Tracking Device w/ 4G Service # 300-AT3-S does need to connect to a power source to function. I'd recommend running the red and white wires to the battery on the trailer and then the black to a ground and you'd have it wired up. The rest of the wires would not be used.

  • Monthly Fee Of Linxup GPS Tracking Device and How To Charge GPS battery
    The Linxup GPS tracking device part # 300-AT3-S does come with a 1 year service. I have attached the monthly prices as they are now (November 2019) from the Linxup website for after the year is up. The GPS battery last up to 3 months once charged (so it draws very little power) by a 12V source if you are tracking something like a trailer that is non-powered. You would just need to fully charge the GPS battery with a 12V power source. If you are tracking a powered asset, like a vehicle...

  • Power Supply for Linxup 300-AT3-S GPS Tracking Device
    According to Linxup, the # 300-AT3-S can indeed be powered from the 12V trailer circuit as well as its internal battery. The unit will run off the internal battery, which will be maintained by the 12V trailer circuit. When not attached to the 12 volt circuit, a fully charged battery can last up to 3 months. When wiring is attached it needs between 11-14 Volts of power. If you installed the white wire to an ignition source,red to power and black wire grounded. The unit will report every...

  • Is Linxup GPS Tracking Device # 300-AT3-S Mounting Location Also a Theft Deterrent
    Ideally you mount the Linxup GPS Tracking Device # 300-AT3-S in a not so obvious location. I attached a picture that shows it mounted under the floor of a trailer on the frame. A thief isn't going to think to look for this. And if he did find it he most likely wouldn't know what they were looking at. If the unit was disabled the last known location would still be available through the service so it wouldn't be a total loss. I wouldn't recommend putting it in a metal box although it...

  • Wire Functions on Linxup GPS Tracking Device w/ 4G Service
    I spoke with my contact at Linxup regarding the GPS Tracking Device w/ 4G Service # 300-AT3-S referenced in your question. The red and white wires on the device will connect either to the positive post on your battery or to the ignition wire. The black wire is for ground and can be attached to any clean bare spot on your vehicle's frame. The remaining wires on the harness will simply be tied off as they are not needed. My contact confirmed that these extra wires do not serve any purpose...

  • Linxup GPS Tracking Device Service
    A subscription to the Linxup GPS Tracking Device # 300-AT3-S after a year is optional. If you chose not to and your trailer was stolen, by the time you realized it was gone and got subscribed the only thing the GPS would lead you to is a tracking device that was torn off a stolen trailer.

  • Installation Recommendation for Linxup GPS Tracker # 300-AT3-S
    The Linxup GPS Tracking Device w/ 4G Service # 300-AT3-S has a wiring harness about 30 inches long. This device will function inside the metal utility box of a dump trailer. It can be mounted with the label up on a support frame member under the trailer floor. The less interference with the unit just like the GPS on your cell phone, the better. It will be able to function in either location, but the mounting orientation is important for that function.

  • Linxup GPS Tracking Device Install on Trailer with Belly Pan
    You can mount the Linxup GPS Tracking Device w/ 4G Service # 300-AT3-S in any of the locations you mentioned. I like your idea of inside the AC cover if at all possible as a thief wouldn't ever think to check there for a tracking device but could potentially stumble on one mounted in the interior.

  • Where to Mount the Linxup GPS Tracking Device on a Dump Trailer
    The best location to install the Linxup GPS Tracking Device part # 300-AT3-S is subjective. The box is weather proof so you don't need to worry about it getting wet or dirty. It will however need access to power so that is something you will need to be aware of when mounting. Since you have a dump trailer, I would refrain from any moving parts. The best spot for most trailers is going to be on the inside of the frame rail near the battery because it is out of site and still has relatively...

  • What is the Range of the Linxup GPS Tracking Device # 300-AT3-S
    The Linxup GPS Tracking Device # 300-AT3-S sends a signal via 4G service so the range is pretty much anywhere you would get cell service. We even heard (from the manufacturer) of a guy that used one of these on his farm to track a rogue cow. If you are needing more specifics just let me know exactly what you are looking to do and I can offer additional assistance.

  • GPS Tracker and Wheel Lock for Trailer to Prevent Theft
    I would recommend a GPS tracker installed on the trailer like with the part # 300-AT3-S which will allow you to have the ability to track where it's at all times. The wheel locks like the part # 288-02020 are also hard to defeat and an easily visible deterant which will help prevent the temptation of a casual thief as well. Beyond that it's just stacking theft deterants to hopefully slow them down. Sorry to hear about your trailer though.

    The Linxup GPS Tracking Device part # 300-AT3-S should have came with a Quick Start Guide that outlines charging, mounting, and activation. I have sent this guide to you in addition to attaching the steps below. If you are using this device on a vehicle, boat, trailer, or other asset that runs on a 12-volt system, then you can easily connect the integrated wiring harness for power.

  • Does Linxup GPS Tracking Device w/ 4G Service # 300-AT3-S Have to Mount in Specific Orientation
    The Linxup GPS Tracking Device w/ 4G Service # 300-AT3-S does not require a specific orientation to function properly. This allows you to hide it well so that it wouldn't be easily located in unfortunate event you'd ever need to track the trailer with it.

  • Does the Linxup GPS Tracking Device # 300-AT3-S Need to be Connected to Power to Operate
    The Linxup GPS Tracking Device # 300-AT3-S actually has a battery in the unit itself that lasts up to 3 months once it is charged. We have actually heard of someone using this to track how his livestock were getting out of his property. Obviously he didn't strap a battery to his cattle so once they came back to his property he removed the device and recharged it.

  • Comparing Linxup GPS Tracking Devices and Compatible Phone Networks
    The Linxup GPS tracking device # 300-AT3 is just the device by itself. It does not come with the service. This would allow you to choose what type of service you want: month to month, yearly. The other one, # 300-AT3-S, is the device plus 1 year of 4G tracking service. It doesn't actually work with your phone. The Linxup uses 4G service just like an LTE phone does but they use it separately. You can use the service on your phone for tracking as well.

    The best trailer coupler lock for your Titan Model 10 Brake Actuator # T2478100 is the Blaylock EZ Lock Trailer Coupler Lock # BLTL-33-40D because it locks your actuator with a stainless steel padlock that has a hardened steel shackle and busting through it would require not only a lot of time, but some significant tools.
