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.
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 collection afterwards
Global service - anywhere in the world
The YB tracker(s)
Two-way messaging where appropriate
Our award-winning, web-based mapping
Current and historic positions
Support before, during, and after your event
Access to our Apple/Android app
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.
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.
