The Basic Tracker includes these facilities:

  • Tracking Features
  • Preset Messaging
  • Red Alert Button
Once you have purchased your YB3, there are two running costs which you need to pay. These are paid online, via your YBlog admin system.

Monthly Line Rental – £12 per month per device (£17 per month per device for accounts with multiple units)

You only need to pay line rental for the months where you wish to use the YB3. There are no annual contracts with a YB3.

Credits are used each time you transmit.

  • 1 credit is used per position report.
  • 1 credit is used per 50 characters sent or received.
  • 1 extra credit is used for delivery to a mobile phone / SMS destination.
  • 1 credit is used per ‘mailbox check’ (this feature is turned off by default, since whenever the unit sends a normal position report it will automatically check for new messages at no extra charge.)
  • Credits do not expire unless you do not use your account at all for 12 months.
