Logging in to the v2track Viewer web portal or mobile app allows you to watch all your aircraft/vehicles/assets in real-time. It retains a permanent history of every trip/session so you can go back and review it at a later time.
Our v2track devices can be used for 2-way messaging using a bluetooth connected tablet/phone app, or via our optional LCD screen and tiny QWERTY keyboard. Messages can be sent from the v2track Viewer web portal to devices or mobile phones. Device initiated messages can be sent to emails, mobiles, other v2track devices, and displayed to users logged into the v2track Viewer web portal.
For more information please refer to our Advanced Messaging page.
A variety of SMS, Email and Website Alerts can be set up for each device. These include: Speeding Alerts, Out of Hours use and Date based alerts for tracking things like Registrations/Servicing and Odometer readings. You can also set up Alerts to notify you when an asset enters or leaves a predefined Geographic Area.
Flight Following Alerts
We have the following Flight Following alerts available from our servers. You can customise the parameters for your own fleet.
- Proximity Alert: If aircraft appears to have landed (ie speed less than 10kts)
more than 1.5 miles from a known helipad or airstrip.
- Non Reporting Alert: A device hasn’t been heard from for more than 10 mins and
the last position it sent it was moving.
Daily History, Playback and Reports
The v2track website provides an extensive daily history allowing you to drill down into each trip and see the data in each position. You can also plot or play-back a previous trip, view its vertical profile, or export it to Google Earth in a KML file. There are custom reports available. You can get a summary of information based on a period in time, ie weekly/monthly trip reports. We can add custom reports on request.
We have two standard device options.
This comes with the internal GPS & Iridium Antenna enabled. No Installation required. Just add a cellular simcard and connect to a power source. Locate the v2track tracker in a good position so it has a good view of the sky and you’re good to go!
Fixed Installation device
This comes with the rear External Antenna connectors enabled. There is also an option to use an extension front panel so that you can mount the main hardware out of the way with a lower profile button in a place more convenient to your installation. Additionally there is an Iridium Satellite Voice option as a time of purchase or return to base upgrade option.
We have a range of external antenna options for our ‘non-portable’ fixed devices. These include Iridium/GPS/Cellular combo antenna for roof mounting on vehicles. For aircraft we source TSO approved Iridium/GPS and separate Cellular antennas.
With v2track you aren’t locked in to a particular configuration when you purchase our hardware.
We have designed our hardware to have a common base unit. With the appropriate instructions a technical person (such as an Avionics Engineer or Service agent) can switch our hardware between the different configurations. This allows v2track users to purchase a unit in one configuration and down the line change it to the other if they find it better suits their needs.
* Please note: You can also choose to run v2track only on Cellular, or only on Satellite. While you lose some of the advantages of a hybrid system, this may be more appropriate in instances such as where there is 100% cellular coverage and you don’t need to pay for the satellite subscription.
A v2track device can take feeds from a variety of sensors and transmit this data back to our website. Our devices have a range of analogue and digital input & outputs.
In permanently mounted fixed installations the tracker has the ability to receive and transmit a Serial Feed from other components, ie GPS and engine monitoring equipment. This saves the hassle of manually having to download data after each trip/flight.
Examples of external sensors v2track users have connected include:
- Garmin waypoint transmission
- Shadin engine exceedances
- Collective switch in helicopters
- Squat Switch/Ground contact in aircraft
- Inertial seperator position switch in turbine aircraft
- Engine running/failure
- Oil pressure
- Max continuous power exceedance
- RPM warning light
- Generator voltage
- Monsoon/Bambi/hook release
The v2track Platform also supports tracking of a few other devices. Some of these are listed below.
