The ignition on and off, duress, crash and rollover are all events that are tracked in real-time. Other data is tracked in near real-time, though there may be a slight delay in sending and receiving the tracking data. The in-vehicle unit typically sends its stored information every 1-5 minutes, depending on the configuration or the customers' requirements
One of the great features of the Netstar Dashboard is that it allows customers to retrieve historical data on a tracker for up to one year. This is useful if you want to check something specific that happened a while ago or if you want to track your progress over time. Beyond one year, data is archived, but our support team can retrieve it if you need it. That's just one more way that Netstar goes above and beyond to provide excellent service for our customers.

Each Netstar tracker has its own unique individual number referred to as its Tracker or AVM ID. The Netstar tracker uses global positioning technology to track the location of an individual or vehicle. The tracker transmits the location data to a central server. The tracker is assigned a unique identification number, known as the Tracker or AVM ID, used to identify the device on the server. Authorised users can access the data via the Netstar website or mobile app. The ID can also track the device’s location if lost or stolen.

If we require additional monitoring or accessories, we will confirm with you prior to beginning the installation. Please let us know as much detail as possible about the installation beforehand, such as battery isolation, connection to PTO, lift arm, brushes, vacuum, warning lights, etc. This will help us ensure that the process is completed quickly and efficiently.
Of course. We refer to this as a de-installation/reinstallation, and it is the most common type of field service Netstar does. Once you have sold your vehicle/asset, you can contact us to de-install the tracker. A qualified technician will then remove the device. You are then free to reinstall the tracker in your new vehicle/asset. In most cases, this can be done quickly and easily by following the instructions in the user manual. However, if you experience any difficulties, our team of experts will be happy to assist you. Whether upgrading to a newer model or downsizing to a smaller car, rest assured that your Netstar tracker can come along for the ride.
