LOCAT provides a number of web-based services (primarily GPS Tracking, Remote Control/Monitoring and Data Logging) with many unique features and benefits, and many similar to those offered by other service providers - but with an emphasis on affordability, simplicity and versatility. Many of these features will remain freely available to the general public, and the more advanced services are available on a monthly pre-paid basis to subscribers.
For the time being, we're offering these services
for free on a voluntary pay-to-play basis.
