Supersail – fixed - GSM
This pitched as a security device, with all manner of add-on accessories for remote monitoring and operation, including float switches and door sensors.
I tested the basic model of tracker and GPS antenna only, which is managed through a mobile app. Getting an initial GPS lock took time; in the end I took the separate GPS antenna on deck to obtain a first fix and then installed it below decks with no disruption to GSM or GPS signals. LEDS on the front of the box indicate clearly if the unit has a signal – very useful for initial siting.
Tracking is not sharable through a public page, but if friends download the app they can track you on your own account (though they could also access the alarm configuration). The Supersail obtains a position fix every ten minutes as standard, leaving a comprehensive trail to view. If you lose mobile signal the device will store up your position and transmit the backlog once a mobile signal has been regained.
