  • Monthly Fee Of Linxup GPS Tracking Device and How To Charge GPS battery

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Is the Linxup GPS Tracking Device # 300-AT3 Waterproof
  • The Linxup GPS Tracking Device # 300-AT3 is weatherproof but not waterproof meaning that you would not want to submerge it. Water splashing on it from time to time would be fine. If at all possible mount the unit as far forward on the trailer as you can. If you routinely have the entire trailer submerged though it could eventually short out the unit.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.
