New Wireless Security for Tenders

25 May 2008

Boat security systems supplier Paradox Marine has introduced Nav-Tracker 2.0 TenderTAG, an enhanced model of its Nav-Tracker 2.0 wireless boat location and GPS tracking system. TenderTAG activates an alarm when a tender is separated from the master craft, which can happen if a tow line breaks, the tender sinks, or it’s stolen.

When a Nav-Tracker 2.0 TenderTAG transmitter is mounted discreetly on a tender, a wireless ‘leash’ with a programmable range from 100 to 400 feet is created. The Nav-Tracker 2.0 receiver on board the boat or yacht will not only alert you if the leash is broken - with the flick of a switch you can also disable the tender’s engine. An additional switch is available to remotely turn on the tender’s navigation lights for night time towing.

Nav-Tracker 2.0 uses Inmarsat based GPS satellite technology to monitor a boat’s location and notify up to four people by email and/or text message every 15 minutes with the latitude/longitude, speed and heading if it is moved outside of a 'geo-fence' with a 500-foot radius. The system will also send several daily status reports.

A message from Nav-Tracker 2.0 would look like this:
