Our fees at Tracking Mate include the data simcard subscription, data storage and customer support. We do supply the tracker by themselves, but our package which includes data subscription are designed to be cost effective to consumers. Depending on the product you have selected, the 1 year subscription is included. After the 1st 12months, the annual fee is $180 per year.
Be mindful of any advertisement claiming to have no ongoing cost. GPS tracking devices require a means to transmit the data. Most common form is data simcard via a telco. Example Telstra, which is often referred to as M2M, (Machine to Machine).
Some companies will provide the simcard for free, but the purchaser is required to activate the card, which can result in a costly monthly subscription plus additional data storage fees.
