Locate your stuff! The Asset Tracker Kit from Particle contains all of the pieces you need to build a Cellular + GPS location tracker for your most prized possessions. In addition to a GPS Shield, the Asset Tracker Kit comes with a weatherproof enclosure, so it’ll keep your electronics safe from the dust, dirt, and moisture of the great outdoors. Keep your bicycle, baby, and backpack safe--satellite lock onto this bargain project kit today!

The Asset Tracker Kit comes with a Particle SIM card with service in more than 100 countries worldwide, and includes 3 months of Particle's 1MB monthly data plan for IoT devices. All Electrons also include Particle's development tools, access to a cloud platform with messaging, and a SIM dashboard for managing and updating your new connected hardware.

The Electron is a 3G device, and will only work in North/South America and Australia. However, unlike the 2G global GSM kit, this version uses 3G so it will work for many many years to come!

Particle offers two types of Electron 3G Kits—this one for North and South America (850/1900 MHz), and one for Europe/Asia/Africa (900/1800 MHz). Check the full list of compatible countries for the location in which your product will be deployed.

Asset Tracker v2 datasheet

Particle Asset Tracker v2 includes:

Improved GPS performance: The new asset tracker has a new 4-layer PCB design that improves its RF performance. This means the device will stay connected in remote locations and will acquire satellites more quickly at startup. The device also features a super capacitor that will help your device retain satellite lock for a short time after it’s lost power.

Smaller design: The new Asset tracker fits in a smaller enclosure that is still water and dust-proof for the most rugged tracking applications.

Expandable with sensors: We’ve added two connectors to make the new asset tracker shield expandable with the Grove sensor ecosystem. Tracking freezers through your supply chain? Easily add a temperature sensor to alert you when containers get too warm.

Additional GPS networks: The asset tracker can now leverage 3 different GNSS networks concurrently (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou)

New and improved firmware library: We’ve created a new and improved firmware library to make using the new version of Adafruit's Asset Tracker easier than ever.

    • 72-channel u-blox M8 engine
    • GPS/QZSS L1 C/A, GLONASS L10F, BeiDou B1I, Galileo E1B/C, SBAS L1 C/A: WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, GAGAN
