Product Number: 72

GSatMicro is the smallest self-contained Iridium tracker in the world. This tracker transmits locations, SOS alerts, and other specialized information in real time, through the Iridium low earth orbiting satellite network, allowing tracking of mobile assets around the globe.

Primary benefit: The GSatMicro is an extremely small, yet easily configured for different environments tracking solution. A non-technical user can design scripts to support specialized applications through the easy-to-use LUA programming language.



  • 32 bit ARM processor with a user- customizable LUA scripting language
  • Latest SiRF 4 GPS
  • Dual-tuned Iridium and GPS antenna
  • SOS button, accelerometer, and magnetic compass for accurate tracking
  • Global coverage with Iridium low earth orbiting satellite network
