v2track has just released an open messaging API (Application Programming Interface) for its v2track Sat/Cell Hardware.  This allows v2track Users and 3rd Party software developers to integrate their own phone and tablet apps (iPad, Android and Windows) with their v2track tracking hardware out in the field via Bluetooth or direct RS232 serial link.

One of the favourite features of our tracking system is the ability to use a comprehensive messaging system for fleet dispatch and keeping in touch with your staff while in or near the vehicle, boat or aircraft.

v2track already provides an LCD screen and mini keypad combo or a basic phone and tablet messaging app for some platforms, however many clients have company specific data they want to generate and send back to base directly from their own applications.  It makes sense to allow a 3rd party solution to compliment what we already have and be able to transmit their data directly via the v2track system since it has 100% coverage with hybrid satellite and cellular connectivity.

In the development of the API we have worked closely with some interested clients to open up the interface to allow them to connect to our device and send and receive the information they require.

One such client operates aircraft over remote jungles in South East Asia.  They have developed a company specific iPad EFB (Electronic Flight Bag) for their pilots for flight planning, performance calculations and passenger manifests.  The v2Connect API has given them a way to send this data back through the v2track system before takeoff from a remote airstrip.  Operations staff can now monitor the fuel, passenger numbers, weight, balance and destination of the flights as they progress.

Please contact us if you are interested in integrating the v2Connect API with your device or applications.


v2track has been developing its hybrid Asset Tracking Systems (ATS) for over 8 years. First focusing on aircraft, then trucking and now the system is successfully deployed in a number of forestry assets. Owners and operators of haulers, harvesters and other vehicles are getting real time information about what is happening out in the forest on their computers and mobile devices.

An ATS uses a combination of GPS technology and in most instances either cellular data or Iridium satellite to track vehicles, planes, boats, and other assets. The unit links into a variety of machine sensors to intelligently determine the operation location, running hours and performance of an asset in real time. While most ATS systems are either cell or sat based, the v2track system incorporates both cellular data and Iridium satellite technology to seamlessly switch between cellular and Iridium satellite data networks. This hybrid creates a cost effective and never out of reach ATS that includes messaging and key sensor monitoring.

Multiple users can log in at the same time via computer, tablet or smartphone. The website displays realtime data in both map and key data formats and also functions as a hub of the two way text message system for fleet managers. In addition messages can be automatically routed between trackers and to and from cellular phones which the manager supervising the message process can control.
