We’ve all had those niggling worries about tying up our boat whilst we head ashore for a bite to eat and the thoughts of it not being there when we get back!
Tetra Boats are launching a new product called TenderTrack at the 2011 London Boat Show. TenderTrack is about the size of a box of matches and incorporates a highly sensitive 50 channel GPS and GSM data modem to allow the location of your tender to be constantly monitored on your smart phone. It’s waterproof and has an internal rechargeable battery that can offer up to 72 hours of operation.
Simply mount the unit on the tender or outboard (it can take temperatures of up to 70C, so can even sit inside an outboard cowling) and access its functionality through either sending SMS commands to the unit or through a simple web interface.
I don’t see why you couldn’t use this on your car or motor bike or even on your prize pot plant in your front garden – what a great gadget!
