Monitoring Need-To-Know & FAQs

How much does the Basic Monitoring Service Plan Cost?

The Basic Monitoring Service Plan is $29.95 per month or $74.95 per quarter. You must select your Monitoring Service Plan when you purchase your GPS SmartSole, although your first payment is charged 30 days later.

Where does the GPS SmartSole work?

GPS SmartSoles purchased in the U.S. will work in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, where there is sufficient 2G cellular service. In the United States, the GPS SmartSole works across all 50 states using the T-mobile 2G cellular network. In Canada, it uses the Rogers network. To get a general idea of the coverage in your area, check out a cellular coverage map such as the one provided by Open Source. Enter your zip code, select T-Mobile (or Rogers for Canada) and check the box for 2G coverage: https://opensignal.com/networks **Open Source provides an independent 3rd party map based on crowdsourced data, does not guarantee coverage and coverage is subject to change. Regardless of map indications, you MUST TEST your GPS SmartSole for connectivity when it arrives. If there is not sufficient coverage in your area you may return the GPS SmartSole for a refund. See full Terms Here. (Customer must return ship.)

Do I need to be a T-Mobile/Rogers customer to use GPS SmartSole?

No. Your Monitoring Service Plan is powered by GTX Corp and is independent of your cellular carrier. You do not need to be a T-Mobile / Rogers Canada customer to use GPS SmartSole, the Monitoring Portal or the Smart Locator App. You must have a Monitoring Service plan with GTX Corp which includes your cellular network connectivity.

Why do you use a 2G device instead of a 3G device?

In order to hide a GPS tracker inside a shoe insole in a way that is comfortable for the wearer we developed the thinnest GPS tracker in the world! We needed the smallest device and that uses a small “cell phone style” battery. For this reason, we employ a 2G cellular device which is small enough to fit and does not require a large battery to function. (3G draws much more power and at present may not last more than 1 day per charge). Yes, 2G cellular coverage is no longer available to the USA consumer. Fortunately, GTX Corp partners with T-Mobile’s business division which still hosts a large 2G network nationwide- keep in mind, the original 2G network is still larger than the current 3G / 4G networks. The only challenge is that T-Mobile does not maintain a map of their 2G coverage area, therefore, the only way to know if GPS SmartSole will work for you is to buy it and test it in your area. Yes, we are currently developing a 3G device and strive to make it small enough and power efficient enough to work for future models of GPS SmartSole. It is our core vision and motivation to develop a practical and universal tool to help caregivers, but we are limited to the device and battery technology available at this time.

How reliable is the coverage?

GPS SmartSole is the thinnest GPS tracker in the world, taking advantage of a small device and small battery in order to fit in a shoe. For this reason, we employ a 2G cellular device which is small enough to fit and does not require a large battery to function. But 2G cellular coverage is no longer available to the USA consumer. Fortunately, GTX Corp partners with T-Mobile’s business division which still hosts a large 2G network nationwide- keep in mind, the original 2G network is still larger than the current 3G / 4G networks. The only challenge is that T-Mobile does not maintain a map of their 2G coverage area, therefore, the only way to know if GPS SmartSole will work for you is to buy it and test it in your area. If there is not sufficient coverage, you may return GPS SmartSole for a refund. Typically, out doors, in good cellular coverage areas, GPS SmartSole is pin point accurate and updates every 5 minutes (10 minute on Economy Plan). Outdoor accuracy is good to within 15 feet, less in most cases.

Will GPS SmartSole work outside the USA?

GPS SmartSoles purchased in the U.S. will work throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, where there is sufficient 2G cellular service. The SIM card cannot be exchanged to function in a different area. For customers outside of the United States, click here for a list of additional GPS SmartSole distributors.
