GPS stands for Global Positioning System and is a global navigation satellite system for positioning.
It allows the determination of the current position in real time. The accuracy varies from ten to one meter. Meanwhile, this method has established itself as the world's most important location method and is widely used in navigation systems. With a Bike GPS Tracker, there is also the possibility to find the location of his bike after a theft, or to record the route, for example. GPS for the bike therefore offers a useful theft prevention.
Integration of GPS trackers in bicycle locks
The desire for a GPS tracker function is mainly due to an increased safety claim. In a bicycle theft, the hope is great to find the bike with the help of the tracker. But especially with higher-priced bicycles, such as e-bikes, the bicycle thefts are organized and carried out very professionally. Unfortunately, a GPS tracking system is quickly identified, removed and therefore useless, because your own bike can not be located. So it does not make sense to mount it on the bike but to hide it. This can be done on the one hand, a fixed frame lock, for example, a taillight or hidden in the seat post done.
I LOCK IT is not yet equipped with a GPS Tracker, but still offers excellent theft prevention. Robust materials, clever accessories and an integrated alarm system make it difficult for bicycle thieves to steal your bike. In addition, with I LOCK IT you have the option of determining your position. The development of I LOCK IT with GPS Tracker is currently in full swing. However, many tests are still needed to give you a reliable and safe product.
Further advantages of the GPS taillight
Transmission of GPS tracker position data via SMS to your smartphone

Automatic notification via SMS when moving
long battery life of about 600 hours
compatible with common micro SIM cards
What can the location determinations of I LOCK IT
The location provides some useful features for your bike. When traveling to a foreign environment, it can happen that the orientation is lost.

I LOCK IT uses the location of your smartphone to determine the location of your bike. As soon as you turn off your bike and close I LOCK IT, the GPS coordinates of your smartphone are used by the bike for the last parking position and stored in the I LOCK IT app.
With the I LOCK IT App, you can easily determine the last location of your bike. In addition, the position can be passed on to friends and family.
