ARKNAV GPS Tracking System

100% Real-time Visibility with Zero Blind Spots

RX-8W Waterproof Vehicle Tracker

For cars, vans, trucks, trailers, heavy machinery


The majority of fleet owners do not want complicated activity reports that they have to spend too much time studying. GPS tracking technology is evolving and growing at a fast rate, so customers are looking for suitable solutions for special applications like cold supply chain, agricultural machinery, caravans, and logistics. New markets and new applications are constantly being developed to meet the industries’ tracking demands.

RX-8W is low cost and fulfills all the basic functions for fleet management, vehicle recovery, construction/agricultural machinery and more. RX-8W has a temperature sensor and waterproof robust enclosure; it provides easy installation, fast and accurate location reports, immobilizer, and driver ID information. The latest uBlox GPS and GSM chips offer instant GPS fixes and more accurate GPS and cell locations, as well as accurate journey and vehicle usage reports; covering areas where there is no or very weak GPS signals.

Superb power surge protection up to 65 volts prevents power feedback and possible tracker burn out; making it an ideal 'fit and forget' solution with reduced after sales service. Waterproof/heatproof housing and reliable build quality allows the tracker to withstand dramatic environmental changes in a traveling vehicle. The built-in antenna design not only reduces installation costs considerably, but also allows RX-8W to be well hidden to avoid tampering; increasing the chance of recovery if the vehicle is stolen.

Quality components from reliable suppliers, such as uBlox modules, Sanyo battery cell, Chilin plastic and many others, ensures the device will survive any installation environment such as in heavy machinery, under trailers, and under the dash board. Fitting RX-8W can be as simple as just connecting the device to the vehicle power supply and engine key. RX-8W covers all 'must have' functions for fleet management such as temperature controlled fleets, and vehicle recovery; it enhances user satisfaction, offers low installation and low after-sale service costs, and has an extremely low defect rate.
