TWIG care and control devices now use GPRS air link to TWIG Web Finder service

TWIG GPRS saves on airtime cost when frequent position updates are required. Also real time tracking of for example distressed persons and assets becomes feasible using GPRS connection.

TWIG Discovery Pro safety phone and TWIG Locator tracking device now communicate using either GPRS data or SMS with TWIG Web Finder tracking and alarms monitoring service. This enables you to choose the air link providing best service and best value in your application.

TWIG GPRS can fall back on conventional SMS if GPRS becomes unavailable, further improving reliability of service.

Key features of TWIG GPRS:
- Push telematics from server to mobile
- Automatic modes to improve battery life
- Customer selectable primary air link
- Customer selectable SMS backup if GPRS service not available
- Customer selectable international roaming policy for data cost management
