IQ800 Hybrid Satellite/Cellular GPS Tracking Unit

IQgistics IQ800 is a compact, fully-integrated cellular (GSM/GPRS) and satellite (Inmarsat D+) GPS tracking unit. Until now, interfacing to multiple networks was a difficult and time-consuming task involving numerous interfaces, differing message formats, and mis-matched hardware.

IQ800 provides a standard, manufactured two-in-one solution and features an effective least-cost routing method that combines the affordability of a cellular connection with the reliability and global coverage of satellite.
