GPS Equipment

LOCAT does not import or sell any equipment, but in stead negotiate with vendors for better prices on your behalf. Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements so that we can advise you. You are not obliged to use the equipment we suggest, and you are free to ask us to add support for your specific equipment that you may already own or intend to purchase.

Pet/Personal tracker Depending on your requirements and/or choice of manufacturer/vendor, GPS trackers are available from R1200 to about R4500 per unit (average about R1650)

Livestock tracker Depending on your requirements and/or choice of manufacturer/vendor, whether you choose to include solar panel back-up power, and the size of the animal, GPS tracker collars are available from R2600 to about R4500 per unit (average about R2650)

Vehicle tracker Depending on your requirements and/or choice of manufacturer/vendor, GPS trackers are available from R1300 to about R6500 per unit (average about R1500)

Vehicle Installation

Please note that in the majority of cases, the GPS equipment can be easily installed DIY and only basic technical know-how is required. If, however, you require installation, the cost per vehicle is R450. We are currently offering installation services in the Pretoria and Cape Town regions, but please contact us if you are outside these areas and need assistance with installation.

We currently offer the installation of a pre-configured unit at R1950 per unit installed.

SIM Card Management

LOCAT makes use of the SIM Card Management services provided by flickswitch, which effectively eliminates the hassle associated with air-time top-ups and data bundle subscriptions.
