Astra Telematics AT240

The Astra Telematics AT240 is a powerful waterproof GPS tracking device.

Astra Telematics AT240

The AT240 is available in two different models, with and without Canbus and is built on the same technology as the AT110, with the addition of internal antennae and a waterproof case.

It is also economical to operate, with low power consumption and efficient reporting protocols that reduce airtime costs. Positions are recorded based on heading changes, distance travelled, or elapsed time, rather than at fixed timed intervals. This allows for detailed turn-by-turn tracking in built-up areas, but also minimises bandwidth usage when driving on major highways.
