Finding your pride & joy stolen is every 4WD owners worst nightmare.
Black Knight provide the ultimate in theft protection with their GPS tracker Kit. This sleek, small, powerful device can be hidden almost anywhere allowing you to track in real time, view playback data, set anti-theft alerts and more. With the Black Knight you'll always know where your prized possession is.
How Black Knight works
Tracking devices and GPS/GSM
Your GPS satellite position is received by your Black Knight device and beamed out (via the global network of GSM telecommunication towers) to Black Knight’s servers. Once received on the servers, Black Knight’s software (together with Google maps) allows you to view that highly accurate real time GPS data on our web and mobile app applications.
GPS trackers differ from in-car GPS systems, for example. In-car GPS systems do not need to export their GPS data anywhere other than the actual car you are travelling in, meaning the satellite positioning is received into your car and stays there. Tracking devices on the other hand can only update their GPS position once they send out their position via a telco connection.
What is a geofence?
A geofence is a virtual perimeter that you can place around your vehicle, at a distance of your choosing. Once Black Knight exits this perimeter you can receive an email alert notifying you of the geofence breach. If using the Black Knight app, you can receive geofence alerts direct to your smartphone or tablet.
In-built semiconductor chip
Black Knight does not contain a removable, interchangeable SIM like most other telecommunication devices. Rather, it transmits using a powerful semiconductor chip (micro SIM) built in to the motherboard which cannot be removed or replaced. This is a key security feature of Black Knight, in that the device cannot be compromised or reused if stolen.
The integrity of your Black Knight device is also protected by connectivity. Without connectivity it can’t connect to the network, meaning you are always in control. Many dealerships bundle the price of your tracker with at least 12 months prepaid connectivity, however some also offer a lower purchase price for your tracker plus a separate connectivity subscription - paid by you when you register online. Connectivity subscription; fees vary depending on your country and a full list of our international rates is coming soon. If in doubt, please ask your dealer.
How do I sign up to start tracking?
Once you’ve purchased your Black Knight tracker, go to the Black Knight website and enter your unique 10 digit ID and follow the prompts to set up a new account.
You can download the Black Knight tracking app for free from the App Store or Google Play Store.
