Blocking Octo Telematis Tracker, is it possible?

Hi there guys! I need to know how does Octo Telematis Tracker work and is there a possible way to block that device? And if you will focus on how it is obtaining your coordinates it would be really great! Many thanks in advance!

Hello Alex!

Octo Telematics Tracer is a rather primitive but effective tracker and I will try to explain how does it work. First of we have to say that this device is used for fleet control and car security. That small gadget is used for tracking your car's coordinates and sending them to a central server. The whole thing works pretty easy — Octo Telematics Tracker uses GPS frequenciesto determine its position and GSM channel to send those coordinates to the server and receive feedback.

The thought that if you will jam GPS frequencies and the tracker won;t work is really widely spread, but that's wrong. If you will block GPS, your raw coordinates still will be determined and you are still tracked. It is so thanks to a cell tower triangulation and GSM compatibility of the device itself. That non-GPS navigation is quite useful in areas, where GPS is not available, and it will work everywhere, where cell phone coverage is. By the way Octo Telematics Tracker uses the same frequencies as cell phones do, but it modulates the signal as GPRS.

But we at Jammer-Store are to tell you that that Octo Telematics Tracker can be blocked for sure. Do do that we have to determine which radio frequencies it is using. And they are GPS (1575.42; 1227.60; 1176.45 MHz) and GSM-GPRS (850/1900 MHz). So you will probably need a combined A-GPS signal blocker, which will jam GPS as well as mobile phone's frequencies. That's probably the only possibility to block that tracking device without damaging or turning it of!

Thanks for your question, I hope I've managed to help!
