How Does the Carephone GPS SOS Tracker Work?
The Carephone GPS SOS Tracker is a compact GPS tracking device, SOS alarm and two-way communicator that offers both the user and their loved ones peace of mind with knowing that help is only a push of a button away. The many benefits of this multi-functional device include:
- GPS tracking
- Geo fence alert

How Does GEO Tracking Work?
The tracker can be linked with up to three mobile contacts. When the tracker is linked, the connected mobile numbers can request the tracker's location, displayed on Google Maps. When the SOS button is pressed, the connected mobile number will receive a text message with a Google Maps link to the tracker's exact location.
How Do I Call the Tracker?
The GPS Tracker features a two-way audio system, which allows you to speak to the user, and the user to speak back, which is especially important if the SOS button has been pressed. The user has the option for calling one of the linked contacts without sending an SOS call, whenever they wish.
How Does the SOS Alarm Button Work?
The SOS alarm button allows the user to call three numbers with a simple press of a button. When that happens, the tracker sends the three emergency contacts a text message with the exact location of the tracker. Shortly after this text message has been sent to all three numbers, the tracker will then call the three contacts continuously until the call is answered.

What Is Geo Fence Alert?
The GPS SOS Tracker can notify dedicated contacts whenever the user leaves a pre-determined area. This is especially useful for children or users suffering with dementia, who are safest when in a familiar place.
How Do I Track Location?
The GPS Tracker allows any of the linked numbers to request the tracker's location, which is done by simply texting the tracker. A reply with a Google Maps link will then be sent with the tracker's location.

Does the Carephone GPS SOS Tracker Come with an App?
No, this GPS SOS Tracker works simply by displaying the tracker's location on Google Maps. If you are looking for a GPS tracker that works with a dedicated app, we strongly recommend the Watchu Guardian GPS Tracking Smart Watch.
Is the SIM Card Included?
The tracker includes a concealed SIM card, making it more protected from the outside world and helping to make the case more durable. The included SIM card roams across all major UK networks to provide you with the best coverage possible.
If you like, you can replace it with any Micro SIM card of your choosing, prepaid or contract, just as long as it has text messaging and phone call access.
What Networks Does the Tracker Work With?
The Carephone GPS SOS Tracker works on 2G and 3G mobile networks. Please note that internet connection is required to make full use of this device.
Can I Silent Call the Tracker?
The GPS SOS Tracker includes a "Listen-In" feature, which enables dedicated users to make a silent call into the tracker. The tracker will then answer the call automatically, and the caller will be able to listen in without the user being aware.
Can I Know If the User of the Tracker Is in Danger?
The tracker features an over-speed alert, and a fall detector. The over-speed alert is used in case the tracker exceeds a set speed, in which case it notifies the pre-selected contacts.
Moreover, the tracker is built with an accelerometer, which senses speed over a short distance. Fall detection can be used to alert the pre-selected numbers if the tracker suspects a fall has occurred.
Is the Carephone GPS SOS Tracker Waterproof?
Yes, this sturdy tracker is dust-proof and waterproof to IP66. This provides it with an extra level of durability, ideal for use in rainy situations, helping to ensure that those under your care get the help they need when they need it.
