Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

What can I monitor with the Trek Transponder?

Depending on model up to four battery banks 12V or 24V, bilge float switches, security sensors, shore power, fridge, boat location, gas and smoke detectors, sea conditions and two security cameras. Model SM100 is standard with 3 axis accelerometer allowing you to monitor your boats motion – pitch and roll. This is especially handy if your boat is in an exposed location as an early warning of possible anchor drag.

Can I send an SMS to my boat any time to see whats happening onboard?

Yes, you can send a status command to see all your monitored inputs (which are bilge, security, batteries etc) or specific commands to watch particular things such as bilge or security and the SM100 model can send you pictures from 2 cameras.

Does the Trek Transpnder need a special SIM card or data SIM card?

No, an ordinary SIM card will work fine.

Does the Trek Transponder communicate by Internet or Wifi - what about a nice App on my phone?

We found internet slow and unstable compared to SMS. A pretty App on your phone is no use if the Internet is down. The famous and well known internet video calling company Skype summarises why the Internet and Apps is a bad choice for a boat monitor with their disclaimer Skype is not a replacement for your telephone and can’t be used for emergency calling. They cant guarantee the Internets reliability and we agree. That’s why Trek Transponder is fast reliable 4G SMS.

Why is Trek Transponder the best in its class?

Thats easy, offering 2 high quality cameras that let you see whats happening on your boat, IP67 industrial case, connection to most common sensors easily, operates down to 8V so even if battery is very flat still alerts you, extremely low power use (0.04A wont touch your battery), operates up to 32V so surges wont hurt it, supplies constant 12V to sensors REGARDLESS of battery, 30V 5A output relays that have muscle and brilliantly easy SMS operation – no expensive subscriptions!
