Letstrack Personal GPS device isn’t just a GPS device, but it also brings the whole community of Letstrack to you, and you can even communicate with friends, who use products from Letstrack…
After using the Letstrack Personal GPS Tracker for almost a month now here is our review with pros and cons on this exiguous GPS integrated product.
All smartphones today come with the GPS functionality, which can help you find directions, track somebody you love, obviously with their permission, find nearest stores and service centres, and for other similar tasks. The GPS sensor on our smartphones is pretty accurate, along with support from nearby Wi-Fi and mobile network signals, it isn’t the ultimate GPS solutions, and can sometimes stop functioning at all if your smartphone is switched off, running out of battery or you simply switch it off for your own requirements. So if somebody is tracking you, with your permission, however, there will no longer be able to track you once your smartphone is switched off.
Besides that, if you are in a vulnerable location, like on mountains, when you are trekking, or similar other places, where mobile network isn’t stable or your smartphone is switched off due to low battery, a dedicated GPS can be the best solution for others to track you, without depending on a secondary device for the same purpose. Recently Himachal Pradesh Government has made it mandatory for trekkers to carry a GPS device, obviously for safety. I am using the Letstrack Personal GPS Tracker for almost a month now and I am here with a small review of the product.
Let’s get started with the box contents, and it will be followed by the features, pros, and cons, and the bottom line, or whether should you go for the product or not.

- The design of the GPS tracker is quite good. But the size of the hole to insert a keyring is very small. I wish the hole was a little bigger so that it would have been easy to attach it to a key ring. however, it isn’t a deal-breaker.
- There are two buttons on the Letstrack Personal GPS device, one for powering the device on or off, while the other is the panic button. But, the buttons are very hard to press. However, they might go soft after using the device even for some more time.
- The Letstrack personal One GPS device is available at Rs. 6,999, which is almost Rs. 7,000. Yes, the device has some advanced features, I wish the device was more affordable, considering the fact Letstrack is an Indian brand. I wish the product available at around Rs. 6,000 in the Indian market.
