Trakkit was started in 2016 when I was thinking about a better way to do GPS tracking without having to pay expensive cellular fees.
The idea centered around just using Wi-Fi, which was everywhere, to send the GPS data instead of cellular. The first prototype was built in January 2017.
The initial testing worked but needed improvement in performance. So, over the next several months enhancements were made and more testing proved that the new tracker worked very well.
We also developed a Temperature and Humidity sensor that had built-in WiFi so it would be easy to monitor the temperature of houses, refrigerators, etc. without needing additional equipment.
All Trakkit products are owned, built, and ship from the USA.
Also, our internal chipsets are made by Texas Instruments, a US company.
