G-Layer is the importer for both products and represent Rock7 Mobile in Australia, we stock and resell Yellowbrick and RockSTAR, so, let’s see in details the two GPS tracking systems:

RockSTAR GPS Tracking System

RockSTAR  – Rugged, industrial grade GPS Tracking System

We provide RockSTAR units to a large number of remote workers across the globe. The RockSTAR provides accurate tracking, allowing HQ to know the last location of their team members, and also gives a secure and private means of communication from HQ to remote workers. RockSTAR GPS Tracking System comes with advanced alert features and a big red emergency button, as it’s built with safety in mind.

The Outback is where the RockSTAR is most useful. It provides vital communications to keep in touch with both HQ, and home, where no GSM infrastructure is available. Position information is sent automatically from the unit, as regularly as every 30 seconds, or as infrequently as once every 12 hours. If the team at head office suspect their workers are in trouble they can remotely increase the transmission rate to get more frequent fixes.

The RockSTAR can also be used to communicate, sending short messages via e-mail and SMS to the office, and to loved ones. Some even use our Bluetooth link (via iPad/iPhone/Android) to comfortably write e-mail

Our GPS tracking system don’t rely on any terrestrial service – if the mobile phone network is down, that’s not a problem. As long as our devices can see the sky, then they will be able to transmit their position and message data back home. That means they are reliable and dependable, regardless of weather conditions and access to electricity.

The RockSTAR battery endurance will allow up to 2000 transmissions with a single charge.
