“Yacht owners and captains have several choices for vessel tracking systems, but we have found GOST systems to be the most comprehensive and reliable systems on the market. A yacht with a GOST tracking system installed on board and monitored by the Phantom Services Monitoring Center combines the best technology with our experienced, highly trained security team,” Sparks said.

GOST Nav-Tracker 4th Generation GPS Tracking Website GOST Nav-Tracker 4th generation Website

The 4th generation 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. GOST’s sophisticated technology now allows users to remotely control a relay on board their vessel to turn on/off any AC/DC function from the website, remotely over satellite by the click of a mouse.


GOST Nav-Tracker website users can choose from several geo-fence options, including alerts generated when a vessel travels outside a defined route or when a vessel enters or exits a pre-defined geo-fence. The new website will even allow 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.

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 or loved ones are concerned about an overdue vessel. Users can arm/disarm the geo-fence, increase reporting intervals and even poll the unit to get the vessel’s exact position, latitude, longitude, speed and heading, in seconds. Enhanced capabilities now allow users to even drive a relay to turn on or off ANY A/C or D/C function on the vessel all from the website.
