Keep track of your vehicle fleet simply and affordably with SimpleTrack, one of Icom’s low-cost Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) solutions.
Military-rugged Icom 2-way radios transmit GPS data to your base radio and PC without interfering with voice communications. There's no need for a second data channel.
SimpleTrack is based on Icom’s EMDC signaling solution for 2-way radio. If you are already using an MDC1200 radio system, SimpleTrack is fully compatible with EMDC. And if a radio system uses EMDC, it can use SimpleTrack!
SimpleTrack is a board with a GPS antenna attached to it that installs into an F121/F221 mobile radio. Just plug it in and go.
SimpleTrack only needs one radio channel. GPS data signals are “piggybacked” on to voice transmissions with virtually no effect on voice quality. The number of data transmissions is minimized by sophisticated error correction. Icom’s data compression method is fast, up to 10x as fast. Plus, Icom’s technology is smart enough not to waste airtime if the vehicle is not moving.
SimpleTrack uses front panel programming without opening the radio and relies on a state-of-the-art GPS engine with SiRFstarIII™ technology and 159dBm sensitivity. Get extremely fast start times (<1 sec). Works with multiple mapping vendors. Location is sent automatically at timed intervals (Beaconing) or whenever a voice communication is sent. SimpleTrack works on repeater systems.
