Why the TTU-720 Trailer Tracker Isn’t Worth The Money

TTU-720 Trailer Tracker

Are you in the market for a Trailer GPS Tracker and ran across the Calamp TTU-720?  Hundreds of our customers have previously owned the TTU-720 until they found LoneStar Tracking and made the switch.  Today, I would like to discuss some of the problems people have with the TTU-720 and why you should avoid this tracker, except under certain circumstances. 

  • The TTU-720 does not contain a rechargeable battery. After a couple years of use, you will need to contact your tracking company and buy another expensive battery. Your trailer tracking device should have a rechargeable battery or should have a battery that you can purchase at any store.

  • If you are investing in a GPS tracking device for your trailer, then you need the ability to be alerted and to locate the trailer immediately.  The TTU-720 only updates it’s location once or twice per day.  If your trailer is stolen, you will need to wait until midnight (or the scheduled checkin time) to find the location of your trailer.  If it’s on the move, it will be near impossible to track and recover.  When choosing a GPS tracking device, you need to choose one that updates it’s location more frequently.

  • The size of your tracking device can also be an extremely important decision maker.  Not only does your tracker need to perform, it also needs to be easy to hide.  The TTU-720 is a huge 10.5″ long and weighs almost 2 lbs.  This is way too big to hide on your average trailer or asset.
  • Take a look at two of the LoneStar Tracking GPS trailer trackers that our customers have switched to, and you will see they both beat the TTU-720 in every category.  Our RetrieverLTE and our OysterLTE offer rechargeable or replaceable batteries, update location once every 5 minutes, have battery life of over 4 years and fit in the palm of your hand.
