Rental - Expeditions & Treks

Expeditions & Treks

Our services are used across the world for expeditions and treks, for organised travel groups, schools, and charities. Our trackers work anywhere on Earth, and are simple to use. Put in a backpack, and the unit will transmit your position on a regular basis. People back at home can follow your progress on a web-based map.

The YB unit is designed for the roughest of expeditions - they are waterproof, rugged and reliable. In challenging situations such as dense tree cover, ravines, and tough terrain, they will outperform all of the competing products. Battery life is good enough to provide 15-minute tracking for a week long trek without recharging, or hourly tracking for up to 3 months. If you choose YB for your trek or expedition, you're in good hands

How does it work?

We know that you have a lot of things to deal with when organising your expedition. Our aim is to make the 'tracking' part as simple as possible for you. We provide:

  • Delivery to you, and pickup afterwards
  • Global service - anywhere in the world
  • The YB tracker(s)
  • Our award-winning web-based mapping
  • Two-Way Messaging where appropriate
  • Current, and historic positions
  • Support before, during, and after your event
  • Access to our Apple/Android app*

Our YB trackers have very large battery capacities, and are designed to work for long durations. When you get to the start of the expedition, simply activate the YB unit, attach to the outside of a rucksack (or similar), and that's it! We take it from there, and make sure that the units are working, and help get everything ready for the start of your event.

Good Service, trustable application, Good experience

As the organisers of 'The Worlds Toughest Row' we wanted safety, visibility and up to date technology to be the number one priority. Thats why we chose YBTracking. Not only did YBTracking give our duty officers the constant ability to monitor and check our fleet, but it also gave us, the race organisers, and importantly the families of our teams, peace of mind and up-to-date positioning, without missing a beat. The user friendly website frontage and great mobile app was invaluable to everyone involved with the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge
