Can GPS Tracker Work without Sim Card?
Many customers have asked me if there is a locator that does not use a sim card.
A GPS tracker requires a way to connect to a cellular network, and although it usually includes a SIM card, a network is not required if there is other technology that allows the GPS tracker to send data through a cellular phone. Examples might be radio technology or a satellite modem. However, in most cases, cellular technology is the way to share data. However, over 95% of all real-time GPS devices use cellular technology to transmit data, and therefore also use SIM technology. The real question is, are you looking for a device that doesn't require SIM technology because you want a tracker with no monthly fees? In this case, you can purchase a real-time vehicle tracker without any subscription fees.
Is there a GPS tracker with SIM card?
Yes! The type of GPS tracker without a SIM card is called a GPS data logger. This type of tracking device is popular among businesses and consumers because they are not GPS tracking devices that charge a monthly fee. However, because the system does not have a SIM card, they cannot transmit real-time GPS data. This means they are not helpful for automated theft security. This is because the only way to view the data is to remove the GPS tracker from the car and download the data to a computer. This is done by using a USB connection.
A real gps tracker must need a sim card to support it with cellular network. If you have bought a gps tracker without sim card, that means the manufacturer have prestalled a sim card for it, and you still have to pay for the monthly fee for the sim card as well.
Sometimes manufacturer have to prestall a sim card or E-sim because of the special technical of the gps device or for waterproof purpose, they don't want user to open the device and insert a sim card by themselves.
