The uTrack device also allows access to the Global Telemetrics app, vehicle grouping of your fleet and the ability to add geofences.
SmarTrack Fleet is a web-fleet management tracking system offering the complete solution to monitor vehicles and drivers.

This February, Global Telemetrics recovered £2.5m worth of vehicles. This is £500k more than February of 2022, and £800k more than February of 2021, highlighting the continuing rising trend in vehicle theft across the UK.
We remain on course to hit our projected recovery total of over £40m worth of vehicles by year-end 2023, compared with £38.6m worth of vehicles recovered in 2022.
Staycations are becoming ever-popular, and with spring around the corner, motorhomes and caravans across the country will soon be out on the roads again. Whilst these home-from-homes continue to gain demand, it will unfortunately lead to a likely rise in stolen vehicles.
In 2022, Global Telemetrics were responsible for the recovery of £38.6m worth of vehicles. Fiat Ducato motorhomes were the 3rd highest recovered vehicle of the year, making up for over £1m of recoveries. Other motorhome and Caravan brands such as Auto-Trail, Bailey and Adria also appeared on the list, accounting for almost £800k of recoveries.
Global Telemetrics has had a kick start to the year, with £3.4m worth of vehicles recovered during January alone.
At this rate, we are projected to recover over £40m worth of vehicles by year-end 2023, compared with the £38.6m worth of vehicles we recovered in 2022.
