These packages offer basic GPS satellite tracking with a push button to arm/disarm the geo-fence on board and are designed to meet insurance requirements. An L-bracket for installation is also included. Available with 30ft, 60ft, or 90ft cable.
GOST NAV-TRACKER 1.0
GOST’s award winning NAV-TRACKER utilizes the Inmarsat Satellite Constellation, the same satellites used by the U.S. Defense Department with 99.99% reliability mandated by the IMO, two-way communication and True Global Coverage everywhere except the extreme poles. Locate the exact position of your vessel at any moment and track its every move 24/7, anywhere in the world from a computer or smartphone with internet access.
When armed, the Nav-Tracker creates a protective 500-meter geo-fence (radius) around the vessel. If the vessel moves outside the geo-fence without being disarmed, the system immediately sends geo-fence breach emails and/or text messages to 10 predetermined recipients every 15 minutes (programmable from 2 to 30 min) with the vessel’s latitude, longitude, speed & heading. GOST was awarded a medal by the U.S. Coast Guard for assistance in the recovery of high profile vessels using this tracking system, some in less than 1 hour after being stolen!
The GOST Nav-Tracker website is an advanced web-based application that allows users to monitor GOST’s wide range of Inmarsat Satellite based GPS Tracking, Security & Monitoring systems from anywhere in the world. The site continues to offer the distinctive capability of two-way communication with the Nav-Tracker unit. This feature is extremely important in the event the boat is stolen and needs to be tracked. Users can arm/disarm the unit, increase reporting intervals, poll the unit and even drive a relay to turn on/off ANY A/C or D/C function on the vessel with the click of a mouse. The user friendly website incorporates both Google and Bing mapping applications with the ability to change from Road to Satellite to Hybrid view. Users can create several types of website based geo-fences by drawing right on the mapping software to send alerts when the vessel travels outside a defined route or when it enters or exits a predefined geo-fence.
Traditional System Based Geo-Fence
When the system is armed either locally on board the vessel or from the configure page on the website, the GOST NAV-TRACKER takes a reading of its current location & owner (500m to 8km). If the vessel moves outside the geo-fence the GOST NAV-TRACKER will instantly send up to 10 emails or text messages notifying recipients of the geo-fence breach & provide the vessel’s exact latitude, longitude, speed & heading. It will continue to send these reports every 2 to 30 minutes (can be set on new website and changed when in breach), until the vessel returns to its original geo-fence area or is disarmed (locally or on the website).

GOST Nav-Tracker 1.0
The most basic version in the Nav-Tracker family of tracking systems is designed for customers primarily interested in tracking. A water resistant latching push button is available that can be used as either a panic button or a geo-fence arm/disarm button. This unit meets insurance requirements for tracking and was originally created at the request of the insurance companies as a low cost GPS tracking system for their customers. Many insurance companies offer discounts for customers who install ANY GOST NAV-TRACKER system on their vessel. The GOST NAV-TRACKER 1.0 uses the same technology and website as other GOST NAV-TRACKER versions. Available with 30ft, 60ft, or 90ft cable.
GOST Water Resistant Latching Push Button
The GNT-1.0-Push-Button is an IP67 Rated water resistant latching push button (push on – push off). The push button can be used both as a covert geo-fence arm/disarm button and/or a panic button. When used as an arm/disarm button it will control the geo-fence on board the vessel.
When used as a panic button, the GOST Nav-Tracker will send ‘in alarm’ messages with the vessels name, latitude, longitude, speed & heading. It will continue to do so at whatever interval is selected on the website (2 to 30 min) until the user presses it again, at which time it will send the same information with the message ‘alarm cleared’. The messages will be sent to the website and to any designated message recipients as an email or text message. This feature is very useful on jet skis or other small watercraft when users run out of fuel, get lost, get into trouble or cannot get the jet ski started after a spill.

Website Based Geo-Fencing
We have also added the ability for users to create several different types of website based geo-fences and draw them onto the embedded mapping software.
GOST Nav-Tracker website users can choose from several web based geo-fence options, including alerts generated when a vessel travels outside a defined route, or when a vessel enters or exits a predefined geo-fence. Website based geo-fencing differs from system based geo-fencing which does not know about the geo-fences set up on the website. When the system on board sends its normal reports, the website cross references those reports against the web based geo-fences and will alert users if there is a breach. In situations where a breach of the web based geo-fences needs to be known as soon as possible, the reporting interval of the NAV-TRACKER can be increased to accommodate.
The new website allows users to view a history of the last 90 days of the vessel’s positions and to overlay a trace (breadcrumb trail) of their vessel, or fleet of vessels, with their exact current location and precisely where they have been.
To help ensure a covert installation, GOST NAV-TRACKER can transmit through a half inch of solid fiberglass. This allows the GOST NAV-TRACKER to be installed discretely on board to prevent tampering. Some insurance companies now require GPS tracking devices, like the GOST Nav-Tracker, to be installed on high performance boats and boats with high-horsepower outboards. Many insurance companies now offer discounts on annual premiums for vessels with GOST security, monitoring, tracking or surveillance systems on board.
