Orion Technology of Taiwan has recently released an environmentally-friendly GPS tracker that relies solely on the sun’s power to keep it juiced – the Suntrac. This is perfect for a wide variety of transportation ranging from boats to caravans, trailers and even shipping containers. Not only does it enjoy itself most while basking under the sun, it is also fully waterproof and can work worldwide thanks to its tri-band GSM/GPRS modules (850/1800/1900 and 900/1800/1900 ) support. The Suntrac features integrated GPS and GSM modules, and is able to record its current position thanks to its 4MB internal memory whenever there are no cellular networks in the vicinity. The size and weight might put some people off, tipping the scales at 2kg while measuring 320mm × 280mm x 41mm. No idea on whether the Suntrac will arrive Stateside or not, but it’d be cool to have it so.
